MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Expediter Services (ES) said that the company is launching a branding initiative that includes a new website release.

The website, which encompasses the company’s work in the expedited sector and general trucking, provides a comprehensive look at the broad scope of its offerings and services. Through the brand update, the company will now operate under the market name ES, which reflects the organization’s history and expertise within the expedited sector as well as its success and growth with tractor-based opportunities in general trucking, according to ES President Jason Williams.

The company’s new website, ESsuccessintrucking.com, offers visitors an easy-to-navigate platform to review the range of programs and services available from ES. As reflected by the name Expediter Services, the company’s initial focus began in the expedited sector of the industry, and the company has built a strong online brand presence through more than a decade of maintaining and growing its initial corporate website, Williams said, noting that in 2016, ES introduced its Success In Trucking brand with a website that focused primarily on tractor-based opportunities in the general trucking market, highlighting options that also became an area of rapid growth for the company.

The new ESsuccessintrucking.com website provides a platform that allows visitors to smoothly toggle between the company’s offerings within expedited and the opportunities that ES has developed within general trucking. The website details how those entering the company’s truck ownership programs have access to competitive market-rate financing which places an emphasis on work history over credit history.

Visitors to the new website can review equipment options and learn about the relationships that ES has established with some of the leading carriers and vendors in the trucking industry, Williams said. The website, which also highlights the wide array of support services available to members of the ES Community, has been designed to serve as a comprehensive resource for professional drivers, owner-operators and fleet owners seeking to build and grow their respective businesses within the trucking industry.

“Our decision to place our offerings and support services for expedited and general trucking under one market brand name featured within a single, comprehensive website was driven by the overall growth of our company as well as by our desire to continue to the meet the needs of the participants in our program. The heart of our ES Community is made up of the people in our programs,” Williams said. “As a company with more than a decade of experience in transportation, we understand the importance of adapting to the opportunities in the market. The roots we planted within the expedited sector of the industry back in 2006 are still very strong, and our success as a leading resource for non-asset capacity has translated quite well to general trucking. Through our brand update and our new website, we believe we are well positioned for the future.”

Williams said a prime example of company’s expansion and the ability to grow capacity on both the expedited truck and tractor sides of the business can be seen in the success of the 150 For For For For For For For For For Business Challenge, the collaborative initiative ES developed with the Women In Trucking Association to assist in launching 150 women-owned businesses in transportation. Utilizing the infrastructure and expertise that ES has developed in more than a decade of providing ownership opportunities within the trucking industry, the 150 For For For For For For For For For Business Challenge surpassed the halfway mark in reaching its initial goal during its first year, as more than 75 new trucking start-ups began their respective operations with either expedited straight trucks or Class 8 tractors.

“Based on our experience in both markets, we believed that the 150 For For For For For For For For For Business Challenge could be a success in opening new doors of opportunity for women while helping the industry move forward. This effort has also been an important step for us a company,” Williams said. “At the end of the day, whether we are working in expedited or in general trucking, we are a service company. We want to be of service to participants in the ES Community. We are invested in their success as they work to operate and grow their small businesses. Service, and working to assist all those in our program to find their success in trucking, is one of the key points we considered in updating our market brand.”

The ES brand, with its range of offerings and services, will be on full display during the company’s inaugural Success In Trucking Expo (SITE), which will be held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway complex June 7-8. The event will be focused on highlighting truck ownership opportunities and providing insights from experts. Attendees will hear from experts discussing the latest trends taking place in the industry and offering strategies for successfully operating small businesses in trucking. ES has chosen Pro Football Hall of Fame member and entrepreneur Anthony Muñoz to serve as the keynote speaker for the event.

Williams said the SITE promises to be one of the most unique events on the trucking industry’s calendar. Not only is the company developing an expo program that is focused on being informative and fun, but ES is offering free hotel accommodations and free meals for pre-qualified expo registrants. A limited number of those slots are available for the event, and attendees receiving free hotel accommodations will be made from the registration submissions that have been pre-qualified by ES. The registration form and complete information on the event are available at SuccessInTruckingExpo.com.

“We’ve had a strong response in the weeks following our announcement of the SITE, and I would encourage everyone who is interested in truck ownership to consider joining us at the SITE in June. We’ve seen a great deal of interest from professional drivers, owner-operators and fleet owners who want to know more about our programs and the kind of support ES can bring to the table,” Williams said. “The entire team at ES is gearing up for the SITE and welcoming all those who will be joining us in Indianapolis. When you look at what we are doing with the SITE, our new website rollout and our brand initiative, it’s an exciting time for our company. We are very grateful for the growth and success that has placed ES in a position where our company can work to make a difference in our industry by providing opportunities and support to those who are looking to build and grow small businesses in trucking. We are looking forward to the future and being of service to everyone utilizing our programs.”

July trailer sales up slight;y, but below last year; used Class 8 sales fall again

The nation’s two organizations that track and analyze data about the commercial motor vehicle market both note that trailer orders were up in July as compared to June but were still far below when compared with the same month last year.

One of the two organizations reported used Class 8 sales fell for the fourth consecutive month.

ACT Research said preliminary estimate for July 2019 net trailer orders is 9,900 units. Final volume will be available later this month. This preliminary market estimate should be within +/- 3% of the final order tally.

FTR reported preliminary trailer orders for July at 9,000 units, up 61% from dismal June numbers but 68% below July 2018. FTR said trailer orders continue to show weakness during the summer months after experiencing a record run in the second half of last year, noting that van fleets already have their orders in for 2019 and have not started ordering yet for 2020. Although currently, production remains robust at near-record levels, some easing of build rates is expected as backlogs fall significantly to where they were at the start of 2018, FTR said. Trailer orders for the past 12 months now total 324,000 units.

“While net trailer order volume improved significantly from June’s dramatically disappointing results, the industry’s year-over-year performance continued to be extremely weak. While net orders jumped 65% versus an amazingly weak June, they were 66%  below this point last year, a tough comparison to the first month of the record-setting order run-up of last summer and fall,” said Frank Maly, ACT’s director of CV transportation analysis and research. “While some fleets made investment commitments in response to the opening of some 2020 order boards, their overall response was lackluster. A few months ago, there was strong interest to push commitments into next year, but uncertainty over the economy, freight volumes, and capacity has now caused many fleets to move to the sidelines as they re-assess their true needs for either replacement of older equipment or additions to fleet capacity next year.”

On a positive note, Maly said the cancellation pressures of recent months appeared to ease a bit in July. However, any cancels are likely impacting fourth quarter production slots, so there is still some churn in order board occurring before year-end.

“That results in a fairly soft foundation for early next year. Also worth noting is that production continued at a solid pace in July, although OEMs definitely slid back from June’s frantic pace,” he said.

Don Ake, FTR vice president of commercial vehicles, said trailer orders should stay subdued in August but start to revive in September, as fleets determine their needs for next year. The environment remains uncertain, with freight growth slowing and the tariff situation in flux.

“The July order volumes continue to demonstrate a possible return to normalcy in the equipment markets. The low total is representative of a typical slow summer order month, and is very close to the July 2016 number,” he said.

As for the used truck market, Steve Tam, ACT’s vice president of research, said preliminary used truck sales fell 2% month-over-month, the fourth consecutive sequential drop.

Other data released in ACT’s preliminary report included sequential comparisons for July 2019, which showed that average prices fell 4%, while average miles climbed 2%, and average age was up 4%.

“Used truck prices are the hottest topic in the industry right now,” Tam said. “Many dealers are experiencing significant softening in prices, but the erosion is not uniform. Depending on a host of factors, experiences vary and a few factors that impact prices include customer, equipment specifications, location, and vehicle condition.”

ACT’s Classes 3-8 Used Truck Report provides data on the average selling price, miles, and age based on a sample of industry data. In addition, the report provides the average selling price for top-selling Class 8 models for each of the major truck OEMs – Freightliner (Daimler); Kenworth and Peterbilt (Paccar); International (Navistar); and Volvo and Mack (Volvo).

ACT Research: Key risk to CV market forecasts is China trade wars

COLUMBUS, Ind. — According to ACT Research’s (ACT) latest release of the North American Commercial Vehicle OUTLOOK, the key risk to all commercial vehicle market forecasts remains the on-again trade war with China.

“This month’s chart, the U.S. dollar to Chinese yuan (RMB) illustrates why trade wars are neither good, nor easy to win,” said Kenny Vieth, ACT’s president and senior analyst. “As can be seen, after the U.S. fired the latest salvo in the trade war on August 1, the Chinese responded with in-kind tariffs and a 3% currency devaluation — so far. Since the first ‘shots’ of the trade war were fired on March 1, 2018, the RMB has fallen 12% versus the U.S. dollar.

“So, tariffs imposed by the U.S. have been met with in-kind tariffs from China, and the Chinese government has allowed the yuan to devalue, thereby offsetting the U.S. tariff impact, while simultaneously making US goods even more expensive in China.”

Vieth said the bigger risk, especially to emerging economies is that in order to compete with China, they will have to devalue their currencies, making US goods more expensive in more countries and raising the risk of a deeper global downturn.

ACT Research: Heavy duty markets at the edge of the precipice

COLUMBUS, Ind.  – According to ACT Research’s latest release of the North American Commercial Vehicle OUTLOOK, current data and anecdotes make a strong case that the heavy-duty vehicle markets are at the edge of the precipice.

“Since the start of this demand up-cycle in late 2017, we have targeted this year’s third quarter as the point at which the industry was likely to see production rollover,” said Kenny Vieth, ACT’s president and senior analyst. “That targeting was largely derived from historical precedent, with historical peak-level build lasting between 13 and 15 months. For the current cycle, we date peak build rates to June 2018, so August represents the 15th month of peak-level production.”

Regarding heavy vehicle demand, Vieth said, “At the heart of our cycle duration prediction, carrier profitability and production peaks always lag the freight cycle, so capacity building always accelerates relative to freight growth at exactly the wrong time, every time.

“Large new inventories and deteriorating freight and rate conditions suggest erring on the side of caution remains the right call, and we are warning those in the industry to be prepared for down weeks starting as early as fourth quarter.”
