Five things you need to do before the market turns

1. Monitor Rejections​
Market rate data will follow the tender rejections across broader markets. The greatest indicator of supply chain trends lies in tender data.
2. Analyze Demand​
Freight volumes are at 25% lower than their peak, leaving carriers hungry for the right freight. Until volumes change, rates will continue to decrease to the market floor.
3. Dynamically Adjust Rates​
Move from rigid rate agreements that become outdated often before implemented, and create agreements that adjust rates to match the freight market, improving compliance and performance.
4. Implement Infrastructure Changes
By making smart investments in infrastructure, you can streamline your operations and improve efficiency. This includes technology, new equipment or facilities, or even reconfiguring your warehouse layout.
5. Use Forecasting to Predict Market Movement
Market signals, backed by an army of experts, are the key to seeing the turns before they happen. Create stronger relationships with the partners you trust now, and it will pay dividends when the market inevitably shifts again.
