Training and Development
Register now for the Shippers Voice, NASSTRAC's spring conferene June 10th-11th in Washington, D.C.
We’ve got a great agenda that will address important things happening in the industry that are going to have an impact on your freight in supply chain for the remainder of 2019 on into 2020. Visit nasstracspringmeeting.org to learn more and register.
The conference also features an opportunity to go on the Hill and meet with Congressional Representatives. Why is this important? Well we’ve talked to a lot of congressmen and one of the scary things they say is they rarely hear from shippers, so when they’re casting votes, they can operate under a “freight doesn’t vote” mindset.
That’s a major reason why a lot of issues that are important to shippers rarely get addressed.
Well NASSTRAC wants to change that. We’ve partnered with our friends from the Transportation Intermediaries Association or TIA, and we’re going to take the opportunity to meet with these representatives while we’re in D.C. and help them understand which issues are important to our business and why.
We need YOU join us. Make plans now to join NASSTRAC on June 10-11 for the Shippers Voice in Washington D.C..
Register today at NASSTRASpringMeeting.org.

Get the latest issue of the Logistics Manager Index (LMI). The LMI is calculated using a diffusion index, in which any reading above 50 percent indicates that logistics is expanding; a reading below 50 percent is indicative of a shrinking logistics industry.
The LMI score is a combination of all of the other components that make up the index including inventory levels and costs, warehousing capacity, utilization, and prices, and transportation capacity, utilization, and prices.
Warehousing Capacity held steady (up 1.42 to 50.0) in March, and Warehouse Prices are up (+4.34). It has become more expensive to store inventory so firms may be cutting back.
Consistent with recent analysis by the Federal Reserve firms may be responding to an economic slowdown in the first quarter of 2019. Whether inventories will be built back up if Warehouse Prices stabilize or consumer sentiment improves remains to be seen.
Transportation metrics have been the most dynamic over the history of the LMI®. Transportation Capacity is growing, but at a slightly slower rate than February (-0.54). Prior to this month’s stabilization, it had increased in every period since reaching a nadir of 30.1 in March/April 2018. The rate of growth for Transportation Costs has decreased for the fifth consecutive period (-1.70), and is down significantly from its peak of 95.8 in March/April 2018. As presented in the figure below, the difference between these two metrics was 65 points a year ago, and only 4 points today.
