Title: What Transportation Modes Are Most Affected by Capacity Crunches?
Intro: Current and future capacity crunches are often analyzed for impact in the U.S., but they exist around the globe. The same holds true for their impacts on varying transportation modes. All modes of transit feel the effects of capacity crunches, but those that suffer the biggest effects tend to involve ground-transit, including less-than-truckload (LTL), full truckload (FT) and parcel shipping.

At the same time, carriers have turned to leaner operations to keep costs down, and the transportation industry is ready to implode with a capacity crunch that lasts well into 2018 and may only get worse from there.

Shippers may feel parcel audits lack value, and still, others avoid them for irrational reasons. As explained by Jared Fisher of Parcel Magazine, shippers may be able to recoup up to 5 percent of parcel shipping costs through proper auditing procedures.

Title: Parcel Dimensional Weight and Package Density: Breaking Down These Parcel Shipment Rules
Intro: Parcel dimensional weight and pricing have become standard in the shipping industry. But, many shippers continue to fret over how dimensional pricing (DIM Pricing) will impact their bottom lines. To the untrained eye, DIM pricing looks like another way for carriers to get more money from shippers, and with carriers changing DIM weight factors every few years, the suspicion grows stronger. However, DIM pricing is not a fad or something to fear if you know what it means and how to calculate it. So, let’s look into DIM weight and what it means for your company.

Title: Comparing Parcel and LTL Shipping: When Do I Choose What in Order to Save the Most Money?
Intro: More than 25 million small packages, otherwise known as parcels, are shipped daily. Meanwhile, the top 10 commodities shipped tend to be bulky and require less-than-truckload (LTL) shipping. But, the lines between parcel and LTL shipping have started to blur in recent years. Parcel carriers are spending less per shipment, and LTL shippers are spending less by reducing the “work” that goes into shipping. So, how do shippers know when to choose parcel or LTL shipping to save the most money? To find the answer, shippers need to ask several questions about the shipment and question and planned shipments.
