Predicting the freight market in 2023 involves looking beyond a year-to-year comparison thanks to the long-term, pandemic-related peak. On Episode 2 of InTek Freight & Logistics: The Podcast, InTek CEO (and co-host) Rick LaGore answers 5 questions on the freight market to go over where it is now and what to expect for the rest of the year in regards to volume, capacity and of course, costs. We discuss why comparing now to last year at this time is a fool's errand, and when the better comparison is. We also look for patterns that can help with predicting the direction of the 2023 freight market and what outside factors may make those predictions a challenge.
In the news, we discuss the how inflation remains even with supply chain struggles easing, a Girl Scout cookie shortage, and the state of Georgia spending on infrastructure to support freight volume. And then our expert Traci drops in to share a key feature of the MercuryGate TMS in our MercuryGate Minute.
