Sunset quoted in July 14 issue of Transport Topics: Q2 Margin Compression Lingering

Carrier Manager Mike Fritz was quoted in this week’s edition of Transport Topics, discussing the favorable market for carriers in the second quarter.  Shippers are advised to take note of the capacity trends happening in Q2, but also look ahead to Q3 and the opportunities in the spot market.

“The compression happened with our contractual customers between Memorial Day and the Fourth of July with the typical spike in demand. But it’s also opened the door for us to assist customers without contractual arrangements by providing capacity at [higher] open market prices with better margins,” said Mike Fritz, Sunset Transportation carrier relationship manager.
