Container Tracking Innovations: 3PL Adoptions and Implementations
One of the challenges for North America’s intermodal industry over the years is the ability to accurately track and report a container’s status while it is in transit.
And while that has traditionally left third-party logistics companies at a disadvantage compared with other modes of transport that utilize GPS-enabled cargo and equipment-tracking sensors, intermodal has taken steps in recent years to catch up.
3PLs, in particular, have been able to greatly improve their operations and shipment visibility thanks in part to cloud-based software and database platforms, as well as the emergence of web-enabled devices that collect, send and act on data they acquire from their surrounding environments using embedded sensors, processors and communication hardware, technology commonly know as the Internet of Things, or loT.Read more

Memphis: A Case Study in Resiliency
FLOODING ALONG THE Mississippi River earlier this year disrupted Memphis freight flows, impeding barge traffic and creating rail delays as carriers were forced to reroute shipments around compromised trackage. Combined with tariff uncertainties, this knocked volume expectations for local freight businesses a bit off balance earlier this year. However, 2019 is closing with more stability and a return of consistent cargo flows. Growth for the 2020s is supported by extensive infrastructure improvements under way and national growing inland port interest. (more…)Read more

In fact, with each stakeholder in the supply chain — ocean carrier, trucker, railroad, and intermodal equipment provider (IEP) — doing what best serves their own interests, the industry may eventually be forced into the unwanted condition where it has to choose between regulation and free markets before a solution is found, the speakers said.Read more
