Numbers to tell the Chief Supply Chain Officer

Here are numbers you should tell the CSCO:  JB Hunt from Q1
  • Intermodal:  Volume down 3%.  Income per load up 10.5%
  • Brokerage:  Revenue per load up 58%. This is remarkable given contracts are 49% of the volume and only 35% of the revenue.  Great profit for being non-asset
  • Truckload:  Loads up 6% with a 38% increase in revenue per load.  Empty miles dropped to 16%
  • Dedicated continues to slay shippers:  Revenue/truck up 5% 
Cass  tells us per-mile truckload costs rose in February at the fastest pace in more than two years. 
 
Knight-Swift Transportation joined a growing array of trucking companies​ raising driver pay.
 
Here is something you should tell your head of IT:  You need AutoO2:  optimized load design to get more stuff on each load.  This is one of the few levers you have to cut costs.  Call me now 615 791-0865.
