LTL rates

Is Industrial Real Estate Vanishing?

Net absorption of warehousing and manufacturing space in the U.S. has been positive for 19 consecutive quarters, yet continued improvement is expected at least through 2015.

The main drivers of industrial real estate; cargo volumes at seaports, rail freight volumes, gains in gross domestic product, increasing retail sales and a gradually improving housing market, all indicate that the trend will continue.

What Are Tariffs

Tariffs are essentially agreed-upon rates that a carrier offers to a customer. Tariffs are usually given in the form of a percentage discount, subtracted from the general rates offered to the public. A Tariff will usually govern all LTL shipments given to a certain carrier by the shipper. Using tariffs can become problematic when a shipper has several carrier relationships, and then must compare pricing on each shipment among each of several tariffs.
