An Innovative Solution To The Tightness in the Shipping Industry

An Innovative Solution To The Tightness in the Shipping Industry


A recent Wall Street Journal Article, says "The tightness in rail and trucking is an outgrowth of an economy that has been expanding for nine years and an unemployment rate near 4%."  This combination of issues means that shipping companies are seeing their bandwidth tighten creating the kind of uncomfortable feeling of someone who has put on a few pounds but is trying to fit into the same set of jeans they wore in college.  The only way to relieve this discomfort is to either slow the economy down (go on a crash diet)- not a good idea or expand the available bandwidth (get bigger pants - sorry, trying to make the analogy work).  The third option would be to add some flexibility into the mix to be able to comfortably adjust to the expansion- that is where Innovative Transport Solutions comes in.

The Mobile Transport Tray

The Mobile Transport Tray (MTT) was designed by Innovative Transport Solutions to help give our customers options when it comes to shipping steel and other heavy freight items.  Instead of only having the option of shipping via a Flatbed and the increased costs associated with that, now you can load your freight quickly and easily into a closed container and have the option of putting that steel on the rails.  Think of this option like adding some elastic to your pants, not only will help you with your bandwidth problem, but it can save you money as well.
