As the economy recovers, so do transportation rates
from Industry Week
Manufacturers need to plan for a modest hit to the wallets as transportation rates for motor carriers, railroads and intermodal transportation are likely to increase over the next six months. According to equity research firm Morgan Stanley, companies using rail carriers to ship their freight will see a 2.5 percent hike in their rates through the end of 2010. What's more, as the economy starts to recover, manufacturers expect to increase their use of the railroads by 2.6 percent this year.
