As per CNBC Supply Chain Survey:

Freight trucking might remain soft in 2024

Trucking companies get paid per load, and low expectations for orders potentially mean lower revenue this holiday season. Logistics executives were split on LTL (less-than-truckload) freight rates for the first quarter, with half looking for a 5% bump and the other half expecting rates to be unchanged down as much as 15%.

The majority believe rates for full truck loads will be unchanged or down, while 33% expect prices to be up marginally at 5%.

“We expect retail peak season for trucking to be sluggish,” said Noah Hoffman, vice president for C.H. Robinson North American Surface Transportation.

The freight recession has been tough for the industry and for those companies that were not wide-ranged enough to resist downturns, leading companies like Jeff Bezos-backed trucking startup Convoy to shut down. 

According to Tank Transport, the rise in the cost of fuel and falling freight rates caused a total of 31,278 trucking companies to either close or move their services to larger fleets.

Uber Freight’s CEO recently told CNBC that there will be a “new tipping point” in the freight industry shakeout with less diversified business models unable to operate on a cost-effective basis.

A better second half 2024 outlook

The survey shows anticipations for a slight turnaround on a positive note in freight volume in the second half of 2024.

Half of respondents expect a 5% increase; 33% expect a 10% increase; and among the 17% that were the most optimistic, a 15% increase is predicted.

“With a lot of uncertainty around consumer demand, interest rates and the global economy, most people do not have a positive outlook on freight volumes in the first half of next year, but we could certainly see a rebound in the second half of next year,” said Brian Bourke, global chief commercial officer at SEKO Logistics.

In accordance with the quantity of freight moved, freight companies on the water, road, and air generate revenue based on the rates they can charge.

The majority of respondents believe ocean freight prices for the first and second quarters will be unchanged or down — after 2023 in which rates cratered by as much as 50%. Looking at air freight, the majority anticipate rates to be unchanged to down anywhere from 10% to 20%. FedEx recently told pilots to look for additional work with American Airlines as cargo demand slows.
