The freight industry is inching towards balance following YRC’s shutdown, with experts predicting a muted peak season.
The freight industry is showing signs of reaching an equilibrium after a tumultuous period, according to insights from a recent Morgan Stanley investor conference. With industry stalwarts like Schneider National and Werner Enterprises expecting a muted peak season this year, the focus is shifting toward a more balanced market by 2024. Schneider’s CFO Steve Bruffett and Werner’s CEO Derek Leathers shared perspectives on moderate inventory restocking trends and a decline in smaller carriers, largely attributing it to high-interest rates and widespread cost inflation.
