TCA offers econ webcasts

| August 29, 2012

The Truckload Carriers Association is collaborating with Internet Truckstop and Big Truck TV to offer TCA members a new resource: A twice monthly webcast highlighting truckload-specific economic and industry data.

Aimed at the senior leadership of TCA-member companies but also available to others, the webcast, Update, appears on www.truckload.org, www.bigtrucktv.com and www.truckstop.com and can be accessed 24/7. The webcasts feature a “news anchor,” who presents data that Internet Truckstop has culled through for relevancy to truckload carriers.

Although the information presented in each Update will vary, statistics from the Tran4Cast Market Demand Index (MDI) report are frequently highlighted. It will also discuss other key metrics like equipment rates, fuel prices, load availability, truck availability and trends in the length of time it takes for brokers and shippers to pay and will feature an industry expert or economist will present what he or she sees as a current trend or a “hot” topic in each webcast.
