TORONTO, Ont. — The previous year brought capacity shortages, significant rate hikes and continuing penetration of surcharges across all modes. What will 2006 bring?
Transportation Media editorial director Lou Smyrlis will be providing a hard look at the realities of 2006 in a presentation at this week’s Transpo 2006 conference in Toronto.
Smyrlis will draw upon the results from the recently completed Transportation Buying Trends Survey to outline expectations for shipment volumes, rates, surcharges and capacity concerns. The survey, conducted by Transportation Media Research in partnership with the Canadian Industrial Transportation Association and CITT, polled more than 700 shippers from a broad spectrum of industries.
Smyrlis’ presentation is scheduled for 2 p.m. on Wednesday, March 8.
Transpo 2006, being held March 7-8 at the Toronto Congress Centre, will also feature four modal seminars, a policy session, a luncheon address from the US Consul General and a trade show.
