If you read this blog regularly, you are familiar with DAT's perspective on the news and trends in transportation and logistics. You may not know, however, that the DAT Freight Talk Blog and DAT Trendlines have become a go-to source for many industry publications.
For example, DAT’s Mark Montague took to the blog recently to describe an interesting development in refrigerated freight. Texas is now the number-one state for outbound reefer demand on the spot market, surpassing California for the first time since anyone can remember. Mark supported his report with statistics from DAT RateView. Mark's analysis was picked up by Overdrive, Landline, Transport Topics, The Packer and Journal of Commerce, among other online and print publications, and he was featured as a guest blogger for Cargo Business News and CH Robinson.
As you continue to follow our blog and subscribe to our newsletters and to Trendlines, or you are connected to DAT Solutions on LinkedIn or Twitter, you will often be the first to see these and other informative, actionable news items about our industry.
Better still, you can perform your own analyses. DAT has enormous data resources which we are happy to provide to you, either through our advanced products or in a consultative setting. We can create customizable reports that reveal hidden trends in capacity, freight availability and pricing in your business-critical markets and lanes.
