Solution Selector: Motor carriers (2005)

It's never been more important for shippers to choose the right supply chain partners, and for the vast majority of their transportation needs, a motor carrier is involved. With demand for trucks outstripping available capacity, coupled with chronic driver shortages and the effects of the still-in-flux Hours of Service rules, the market for transportation has shifted from shippers to carriers.

Carriers in many instances have been able to increase rates and even use those increases as leverage to shed undesirable freight and contract terms. Mode shifting has reversed some of the trends of previous years as shippers moved multi-stop truckload shipments back to the more expensive less-than-truckload (LTL). As a result, shippers need to be very active in the freight marketplace to ensure capacity and service, even if there is precious little they can do about price.

The Logistics Today Solution Selector is a web-based tool that can help shippers make more intelligent decisions. Beginning on this page, you'll find our exclusive evaluation matrix of motor carriers, culled from our website.

We've identified the key services and capabilities of each carrier, allowing you the ability to match up the right carrier to your specific needs. On our website — www.logisticstoday.com — you'll also be able to compare carriers head-to-head, learn more about each specific company, and even submit an RFI (request for information).

All of the information in the accompanying charts, as well as in our online Solution Selector, was provided by the vendors.
