The World Economic Forum got underway in Davos today in a political environment that appears to have turned away from the WEF vision of expanding globalisation based on public-private cooperation. Brexit in the UK, and the election of the US president that wants to build a wall along the border with Mexico, are just the […]

Businesses struggle for visibility and actionable reporting. It requires a major level of effort for a company, consuming valuable IT resources with lengthy and costly implementation. Business intelligence, or any sort of analytics is always behind the evolving technology - a company builds a platform and it is quickly obsoleted. CPC's Reporting as a Service TM (RaaS) enables companies to rapidly deploy the visibility at a cost effective subscription, opposed to a massive investment. Most reports are published monthly, and can open up visibility to take educated actions to improve efficiencies.
Volumes and demand continue to be low with no signs of improvement any time soon. As larger carriers struggle with YOY losses for the second quarter in a row, LTL is trying to remain tight-lipped about possible causes of weak demand. Concerns and questions are being raised as to how the carriers will respond to this downturn. The cost of living is on the rise and as inventories are sold off from the congestion dating back to March of 2015, demand may soon be on the rise again. Carriers are not adding in new trucks to their fleets, which could cause issues in the long run if demand goes back on the rise again.
The announcement of Hanjin's bankruptcy last week has shocked the ocean network and raised questions and concerns from shippers throughout the world. Many containers are at a standstill, several ships are anchored off shore, and some crews are without food and water until a resolution is found. South Korea's government and some carriers have offered to take up parts of their debt in order to process orders and gain some market share from Hanjin. Unfortunately, their financial losses and debts have forced ports to turn their cargo away until contracts are solidified and a resolution is found. While it's no surprise that some stand - alone carriers like Hanjin are folding, what events led up to their demise, and how will things affect shippers in the future?
