Industry News and Advocacy
  

Something is rotten in Denmark:  As the availability of data improves, people are talking more frequently about differences between spot and contract prices and also about the relative shares that each earn from the market. As you consider that commentary, or perhaps, the data that you obtain, make certain you are making an apples-to-apples comparison. This is important because contract data with or without fuel is always a door-to-door rate; what the shipper pays. In contrast, the spot data is usually reported as what the broker pays the carrier, with or without fuel, and does not include the add-ons that the broker charges the shipper to cover his or her costs. Such apples-to-oranges comparisons seriously understate the spot market rates, indicating an erroneous pricing advantage spot-over-contract as is commonly cited to describe current market conditions. Spot prices have recently fallen, following softening market conditions. Because such spot market swings generally precede contract price swings by six months or more, the spread between the two has changed in favor of spot prices. Enough to shift volume from contract to spot? Nope, read on.
