Gary Shilling's 2019 Economic Outlook for Shippers
Jan 30, 2019
Based on experience we know that economic conditions can have a significant impact on carrier rates. That is why we encourage shippers to consider what is going on in the economy when they put together their transportation spend management plan.
And in today’s environment, there are several things going on that can directly impact the economy here in North America as well as on a global basis.
That’s why we strongly recommend that you take the time to listen to our interview which will provide you with an economic update from our friend and award-winning economist Gary Shilling, who is the longest running columnist in Forbes and has been recognized by numerous publications. He addresses the looming threats of a recession and other issues so that you can better plan for what's ahead.
In this interview he addresses questions that are on many minds right now such as:
- Are we heading into a recession? Why or why not? What would be the extent of the impact?
- How will tariffs and a potential trade war with a slowing Chinese economy impact shippers?
- And how will logistics change global supply chains?
It’s hard to find the combination of depth and real-life focus that he provides anywhere else, so we heartily encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to listen to the interview with Gary.
We provide this because we’re on your team, here to help and passionate about seeing you be successful. If you have questions or comments, give us a call at 630-833-0890 or send us an email.
