"The main issue is how do you attract millennials to a truck-driving job?
Second is how to do you retain them?"
- Dennis Moriarty, director of operations, Altom Transport
"In this time of uncertainty, it is imperative to have
house carriers with negotiated contracts and tariffs," Kudis
explained. "We have noticed an overall increase of 30%
with all non-contracted bulk carriers and a 15% increase
for contracted carriers. Accessorial charges such as hazmat,
notification, liftgate, demurrage and others have also risen
in cost."
ATA tracks the average revenue per mile. "After increasing
nearly 16% in 2018, this metric is up roughly 5% year-overyear so far in 2019," Costello said, noting that it is slower
growth but that it is at a higher level.
Delco said he has heard more about rail traffic moving
to truck because of spot rates settling versus a year ago. "I
believe rail service has been impacted by weather so far this
year, and volumes are under modest pressure - that is clear
based on the Association of American Railroads' (AAR)
reported carload data year-to-date," he said.

Total U.S. carload traffic for the first three months of
2019 was 3,195,609 carloads, down 3.1%, or 100,800
carloads, from the same period last year; and 3,476,457
intermodal units, down 0.6%, or 19,892 containers and
trailers, from last year, AAR reported.
Yet, in March, the latest month for which data is available, four of the 20 carload commodity categories tracked by
AAR saw carload gains compared with March 2018. These
included: petroleum and petroleum products, up 8,290
carloads, or 21.1%; motor vehicles and parts, up 1,215 carloads, or 1.8%; and nonmetallic minerals, up 927 carloads,
or 6.3%. Commodities that saw declines from March 2018
included: coal, down 64,804 carloads, or 19.1%; grain,
down 11,837 carloads, or 12.6%; and crushed stone, sand
and gravel, down 8,732 carloads, or 9.1%.
Kudis said intermodal generally works well beyond
2,000 miles if the customer can wait with the given lead
