FTR’s Sept. Shipper Condition Index Remains Favorable for Shippers

FTR’s monthly SCI was flat August to Sept at a reading of 6.4, indicating continued favorable conditions for shippers. While volume and capacity favor shippers, rising diesel prices provided a headwind that stopped the SCI from moving even higher.

While we are in relatively benign period for shippers, the general consensus is that capacity will tighten in 2020, so make sure you are prepared.
