The Price of Oats

Since the Motor Carrier Act of 1980, there has been a difference between carriers in the cost of both LTL and Truckload services. For the most part, the difference has represented the amount of profit a carrier decides they want to give up for a shipper, based on the volume of traffic they handle. Most experienced shippers select the carriers they do business with, based on service and reliability first and then price.

Todays economic climate has had a negative impact on transportation. Because of current low freight volumes some weaker carriers are more willing to offer lower rates to attract business handled by others. In the rush to get the lower rate, shippers might over look the service and reliability of the carrier. They could be trading price for poor service and reliability.

Remember, there are always two prices for oats, one for the oats before the horse and one for the oats after the horse.
