Carriers are hungry for business. Nationally, freight volume is at its lowest level in years, and the Freight Transportation Services Index is beginning to rise.

Many carriers went out of business in 2008 and 2009. The stronger ones survived and have typically sustained their business by establishing high levels of asset utilization. This has been achieved by limiting empty miles and finding complementary loads to ensure trucks are being used in both directions. This creates a wonderful opportunity for shippers: By identifying those carriers who can offer you the lowest rates because your loads help them balance out their network, you can find significant cost saving opportunities when purchasing transportation.
