Transportation TIP List: Week of August 14th, 2016

Back to school time is almost here, and we’re studying up on transportation trends and topics sure to make an impact this fall and beyond. This week, our TIP List syllabus highlights a hiring boost in the trucking industry, the Top 10 3PL Awards and the impact of the “Brexit” on the retail supply chain. Get to work with the stories below!

  • Trucking Resumes Hiring, Reversing Five-month Decline: As U.S. freight shipping picked up in June and July, for-hire trucking companies began hiring again, reversing a five-month decline in trucking employment. For-hire trucking companies added 1,700 jobs in July after losing 11,500 since January.
  • Readers’ Choice: Top 10 3PL Excellence Awards 2016: The global supply chain is ever changing. International trade deals, wars, embargoes, company failures, start-ups, and increasing regulations don’t even begin to complete the list of things shippers have to stay on top of. That’s where the 3PL provider comes in.
