Severe weather causes freight rates to slip

DAT Solutions

A huge snowstorm in Denver last week closed three interstate highways: I-25, I-70 and I-76. Road closures isolated Denver from parts of the supply chain last week. That led to an increase on the lane from Seattle to Salt Lake City , as an alternative to bringing in supplies from Denver. Denver to Albuquerque, NM increased to $2.07/mi. Out west, Sacramento to Salt Lake City picked up, possibly replacing the Denver to Salt Lake City lane.

Social Networking, TMS, and Mega Trends: My CSCMP Conference Agenda

Talking Logistics

Are you attending the CSCMP Annual Global Conference later this month in Denver? See you in Denver soon! It’s is one of the best conferences in the supply chain and logistics industry to learn and network. The challenge, of course, is choosing which sessions to attend, spread out across twenty-six tracks. Let me help you. Below are the sessions that I am participating in focused on social networking, transportation management systems, and “mega” supply chain trends.

Transportation Trends: What’s Going on in the Trucking Industry?

PINC

The Denver-based firm operated in all states west of the Appalachian Mountains. Here are the top trucking trends that all shippers should be aware of, according to The American Transportation Research Institute. Coming into 2019, issues like the tariff wars, driver shortage, and rising freight rates were high on transportation managers’ radar screens. Some of those issues prevailed this year, others lessened in importance, and still, others reared their heads as 2019 progressed.

Spot market settles after Hurricane Florence

DAT Solutions

Rates were up out of Denver , and the lane to Houston rose 17¢ -- but the average was still just $1.50/mile. As people in the Carolinas try their best to return to their normal routines, the freight markets have settled back down into typical seasonal trends following Hurricane Florence.

Van freight gears up for the holidays

DAT Solutions

Los Angeles to Denver also increased 14¢ to $3.21/mile. The West Coast continued to drive spot market demand last week. Load-to-truck ratios in Los Angeles hit 12.2 on Friday, even stronger than the prior Friday when it was just over 10.

The Big Game & Supply Chain Planning

Blue Ridge

Wade Phillips and the Denver defense did well to understand and shut down the strengths of the Carolina offense. This forced Carolina to try and pass more than they were comfortable with, and in this situation Denver relied on a strength of their own – the defensive backs – to lock down the passing game. Bottom line: Denver predicted the Carolina offense to a ‘T,’ positioned themselves to maximize their own strengths and executed perfectly.

Post-Easter rebound doesn't reach truckload rates

DAT Solutions

Trucks had a tough time getting out of Denver. Drivers going to Denver will want to make sure their headhaul into Denver covers their costs on the way out as well. Denver to Houston dropped 18¢ to $1.16/mi. Denver to Chicago declined 13¢ to $1.07/mi. Although van freight volumes recovered following Easter week, it wasn't enough to boost the national average van rate, which remains at $1.81/mi.

Shippers Discuss Freight Procurement Strategies and Concerns at Chainalytics’ Annual FMIC Summit

CHAINalytics

| By Kevin Zweier | Vice President, Transportation | Chainalytics | We recently concluded our Freight Market Intelligence Consortium (FMIC) Summit in Denver in late April. During the event, I had the opportunity to moderate a panel with three experienced and very knowledgeable transportation professionals focused on “Transportation Procurement in Challenging Markets.”

How to Move Forward with Reverse Logistics

Additionally, Mr. Bentz is an adjunct professor in supply chain in the graduate transportation program at the University of Denver and a member of the board of directors. Everyone has experienced this scenario: a great event is planned in advance, a timeline is set with a predetermined flow of the party, from when guests arrive to the food and music, all the way to their departure at the end of the evening. But as with most events, the host may experience some hiccups along the way.

Higher van volumes fail to boost rates

DAT Solutions

On the other hand, volumes plunged coming out of Denver , so only the higher-priced lanes remained, which boosted rates there. Several low-paying lanes showed rate increases last week: Denver to Chicago increased 11¢ to $1.23/mi. Denver to Phoenix gained 10¢ to $1.32/mi. Denver to Oklahoma City slipped 14¢ to $1.12/mi. The end of Q1 was relatively quiet on the truckload spot market.

Van Rates Adjust to Changing Holiday Demand

DAT Solutions

Most of the big increases last week were out of Denver , where the average outbound rate jumped up 7%. Denver is what we typically refer to as a backhaul market, though, meaning that outbound loads usually pay a lot less than inbound loads. Denver to Phoenix rose 19¢ to $1.52/mile. One of the few headhaul lanes out of Denver is to Albuquerque, NM , and it gained10¢ to $2.16/mile. Van rates jumped up 15¢ in both directions between Los Angeles and Denver.

Are High Freight Rates in December the New Normal?

DAT Solutions

Load availability soared in places like Denver and Memphis. Out West, the number of loads tripled on the lane from Denver to Los Angeles. Prices were also up on the lane from Denver to Phoenix. The flipside of higher outbound rates in Denver is that inbound rates tend to fall. to Denver paid 15¢ less last week, at $2.45 One thing reefers and vans had in common was that there were a lot more loads available last week in Denver.

Reefer Demand Dips, But Rates Don't

DAT Solutions

Denver has the lowest average outbound reefer rate in the country, and inbound rates rose last week, to compensate: L.A. to Denver rose 37¢ to $3.23 Dallas to Denver was up 24¢ to $2.67 Chicago to Denver increased 19¢ to $2.20 Out West, Fresno to Denver lane rates two weeks ago, but fell 56¢ last week, to an average of $2.58

Mobile Collaboration - Supply Chain Planning at Your Fingertips

Logility

I “enjoyed” a rather turbulent ride on a recent flight into Denver International Airport the other day. From my days as a flight test engineer, I know that modern jets have a forward-looking weather radar to help minimize the type of exciting rides I experienced that afternoon. However, it isn’t always possible to avoid all those pockets of turbulence; which is why it is always a good idea to head the flight attendant’s warning to always have your seatbelt fastened.

Unemployment was low and the economy was strong, giving people confidence to be more assertive with their investments. Businesses were making longer term commitments and investing money to expand their operations. The coronavirus pandemic had a direct impact on distribution strategy, and increased demand for fulfillment services.

West Coast Heats Up for Van Freight

DAT Solutions

For van freight, we’re starting to see hot markets shift westward, with big rate increases out of Seattle, Los Angeles, Denver and Stockton, CA. So far, the national averages for spot market rates in October are the highest they've been since the Snowpocalypse of 2014. Back then, it was a series of winter storms that disrupted supply chains and pushed load-to-truck ratios unusually high for several months.
