"Nice research and full page commentary in the JOC! I really like the way you laid out the forces affecting the TL, LTL, and parcel segments, and, in your typical candid way, told the story for the readers. Overall, the quality of the analysis in putting together the numbers and drawing some conclusions was very good.“

"Satish - Great article. Here’s what I sent to all of my people.

Echo Team, Happy New Year to all! There has been a lot of discussion this past year about the new so-called digital freight brokers and how they might possibly “disrupt” the freight brokerage market. I have attached a good article by an industry pundit published in JOC last week that makes good reading for all."
