Shipping Freight

Domestic Shipping Expected to Increase in 2015

The Cass Freight Index reported that domestic shipping increased almost 3% in January, based on data from $22 billion in annual freight transactions, spread over 350 large shippers. A likely downside for the domestic shipping industry this year is having too much business and not enough capacity. The data in the Cass report indicates that the ability to control rates will continue to move in favor of trucking companies, a noticable shift from the industry just a year ago.
