Surviving 2020 presented a unique challenge for many. Making it to 2021 encompassed the primary goal for many in the transportation and shipping industry. As the new year arrived, the question became how to best prepare for what the shipping mode options and TMS solutions hold for the year ahead?
Parcel Rates Will Increase as E-Commerce Continues Growing
Truckload Shipping Mode Rates Will Begin to Settle, Though They May Still Remain Somewhat Unpredictable
Ocean Freights Will Sway Based on the Continued Developments of the New COVID Variant
Airfreight Rates Will Continue to Fluctuate and Hinge Largely on COVID Distribution Across the Market
Mitigating the effects of these increases and fluctuations in shipping mode rates will require vital networking and cooperation across the supply chain. Coupled with a continued focus on the COVID pandemic and how responses are managed and monitored across the global supply chain network, logistics trends in 2021 will likely see airfreight rates vary throughout the year.
