Dealing with Balance and Empty Miles in Freight Profitability Analyses

Thursday, July 23, 2020

Truckload service is much more than a linehaul move from one point to another. Join us for a complimentary webinar at 1 p.m. ET on Thursday, July 23, as TCA’s Truckload Academy drills into ways to identify cost and operational issues that impact freight profitability. SMC³ Vice President of Cost Systems Bill Shults will present their accounting methods to determine the profitability of individual loads, and will be joined by Averitt Express’s Director of Pricing Mike Sanders, as he shares how their truckload operation makes use of these cost results.

Key takeaways from the webinar:

  • How accounting practices for joint costs apply to truckload freight;
  • The importance of identifying round trips in dispatching; and
  • The treatment of the cost of empty miles.
