The New Way a TMS Fuels Routing Creativity

Talking Logistics

Let’s say a manufacturer based in Milwaukee needs to ship freight to Tampa. Traditional TMS capabilities would only allow this planner to route the freight to its final destination in Tampa.

Relief efforts are underway in Florida, and our hearts go out to those recovering from Hurricane Irma. We’ve seen a big increase in van freight moving from Atlanta and Charlotte down into the state. Some of that is also the result of pent-up demand from shipments that were delayed by the storm.

Rebuilding Efforts Fuel Flatbed Demand

DAT Solutions

Flatbed rates have been down in port cities that were affected by Irma: Tampa, Jacksonville and Savannah. Tampa to Atlanta remains the weakest of the high-volume flatbed lanes, since inbound load counts from Atlanta are still well above normal. That leaves a lot of trucks in Tampa, looking for a load out, so the outbound rate has stayed low, at an average of $1.21/mile. The immediate impacts from Harvey and Irma first showed up in van freight, then reefers.

Emergency Freight: What Harvey Tells Us About Irma

DAT Solutions

It is sunny today in Tampa and Atlanta, with a light breeze. Less than ten days after Hurricane Harvey, trucks are already moving freight out of Houston, with almost the same volume as before the storm. That doesn't mean nothing has changed. Harvey hit Houston on Friday evening, August 25, and hung over the metro area for days, dumping more than 50 inches of rain on Southeastern Texas and Southwestern Louisiana.

Flatbed Markets Adjust to Holidays, Regulations, and Weather

DAT Solutions

Rates were also weaker out of Atlanta and Tampa. Tampa to Atlanta is one of the weakest flatbed lanes, and the rate was down another 7¢ to just $1.39/mile. Flatbed rates saw a spike in the week before Christmas, but otherwise they’ve stayed pretty close to where they were before Thanksgiving. Not that flatbed rates have been low – they just haven’t continued to climb like van and reefer rates have over the past month.

Booming Oil Industry Boosts Flatbed Demand

DAT Solutions

That pushed rates lower out of Tampa. The energy sector heated up in January, which contributed to higher flatbed load counts for the month. Bad weather in some parts of the country also disrupted construction, though, which led to some pretty uneven changes in flatbed lane rates in January. Houston is the number 1 market for flatbed loads, and volumes have improved there, even though rates haven’t followed suit yet.
