While 2016 Was a Mixed Bag of Business, We’re Really Glad You Were Riding Shotgun
The transportation industry sure isn’t a place for the timid, is it?
Conducting business can take a steely resolve, 24/7, and 2016 sure proved that point once again.
We saw and read about and directly experienced all sorts of mixed signals about our industry in particular, and the economy in general.
In transport, we heard about aging drivers and fleets, impending ELD and reefer rules, capacity concerns in the near future and beyond.
In the larger economy, we heard about sustained, month-over-month job growth generally yet a surprisingly soft final quarter in 2016.
Yes, there were lots of mixed signals for us to ponder and to strategize over.
