JA Group: Strengthening Logistics Amidst Freight Market Challenges

Freight Market Challenges

Redefining Industry Standards Through Female Leadership and Innovation

Despite being in a slump, the downturn in freight offers some hidden opportunities for shippers looking to strengthen their logistics strategies for the upcoming year. The downturn can be attributed to several factors hitting the market simultaneously, including:

  • Weaker demand for goods due to inflation and rising interest rates.
  • Increased supply of freight capacity as new trucks and drivers enter the market.
  • Easing of supply chain disruptions that had been driving up delays.
  • Post-pandemic inventory concerns have turned into overstocked shelves and warehouses.


Shippers are no longer desperate to find transportation and have time to consider the carriers they use in a long-term plan.
