Navigating Freight Market Challenges: Insights from JOC x Transfix Webcast

Recap: Transfix Webcast with Journal of Commerce and Paul Poziumschi, Freight Market Intelligence at Transfix


Our senior director of Freight Market Intelligence, Paul Poziumschi, recently joined the Journal of Commerce for a webcast, "Preparing for the Unpredictable: Macro & Micro Insights to Keep Shippers Ahead of the Market”. 

During the webcast, Paul addressed several crucial topics to help shippers navigate the ever-changing landscape of the supply chain. Highlights included:

  • Insights on the likelihood of a recession, the potential timing, and the role of inflation in such a scenario. 
  • Emphasis on the importance of preparing for upcoming market shifts, such as Labor Day and peak holiday season, highlighting how a potential carrier purge could bring on unexpected volatility to the balance of supply and demand.
  • A deep analysis of headline inflation, core inflation, and the Consumer Price Index (CPI) since 2014 forecasting shifts in consumer spend and behavioral trends that could impact the holiday season ahead. 
  • Transfix's predictions for Q3 and Q4 2023, including a projected drop of 8% in the monthly average national Rate Per Mile (RPM) in August, with the market expected to bottom out.
