[Podcast] January 2024 Freight Market Forecast: How to Prepare as a Shipper In January


2023 is coming to a dramatic close after what can be considered one of the most deflating years on record for the transportation industry. Companies have been shipping freight at depressed rates for a while now, making it hard for trucking businesses and their drivers to make ends meet.

As we head into January 2024, it's natural to wonder what the next year will bring. While we don't hold a crystal ball, and can't definitively say what the next year will look like from a transportation perspective, we have been around for our fair share of Januaries over the years. In this episode of Beyond the Road, you'll learn how the dry van, open-deck and oversize marketplace tends to behave during January. This includes what to watch out for and how to plan out your loads this month.

Topics covered in this episode:

  •  The Impact of New Year's Day on Freight Markets
  • Dry Van Shipping Trends During January
  • Open-Deck Shipping in January 2024
  • Oversize Shipping Insights in January
