Navigating the freight recovery – Freight Forecasting (video)

Freight Forecasting with Michael Vincent

Freight Forecasting welcomes FreightWaves’ Lead Economist, Anthony Smith, who joins host Michael Vincent to discuss the latest economic data releases. The information embedded in those releases can help the freight industry navigate the recovery from the pandemic-induced closure of much of the American economy. Industries and individual companies are up-and-running and freight volumes are increasing. 

While such economic reports are full of data, the importance of human sentiment, interpretation and expert opinion when analyzing data trends cannot be understated. SONAR, of course, is made up of billions of data points. However, SONAR is controlled by the user, who can customize the data sets to develop information and intelligence to help benchmark, analyze, monitor and forecast any segment of the market.   

Watch the episode below:

Michael and Anthony also discuss how SONAR is complemented by FreightWaves editorial content, FreightWavesTV, its  Freight Intel and Passport research, analysis by Market Experts and the Passport staff, etc.

FreightWaves editorial content is, of course, found on and is a free website. FreightWavesTV is also free. FreightWaves SONAR, Freight Intel and Passport are all subscription-based services that provide proprietary data, intelligence, research and expert analysis to subscribers.
