Intermodal freight transport refers to the movement of freight containers or vehicles using multiple modes of transportation without any handling of the freight when changing modes. The hyper connectivity of the global supply chain, increased fuel costs, security concerns, and changing policy issues have increased scrutiny on global transportation infrastructure. Can better management of existing infrastructure and broader considerations on future investments improve this industry?

How Will Rising Fuel Prices Affect Transportation?

This guest post is provided by Michael Koploy. Koploy, an ERP Analyst at Software Advice, provides consumers with reviews and comparisons of transportation management software for Software Advice. The original post on this topic can be found here.

Businesses are successfully run on efficient transportation, and efficient transportation requires cheap gasoline to survive. When fuel costs rise, this affects many businesses’ bottom lines. And while many businesses don’t pass this on to consumers, this isn’t the case for many commodities, including corn, rubber, aluminum, beef, wheat, and cotton, among others. All of these are easily outpacing inflation.

Let’s take a look at the impact of rising fuel prices, from both a consumer and business standpoint. It doesn’t just affect how much it takes to fill up.

Rising Gas Prices

The ’79 oil crisis brought gas to close to $3.50 when adjusted for inflation. Funny that $3.50 gas today seems the norm…even “cheap,” by some standards.

US Gasoline Prices vs World Gasoline Prices

In Mid-May, gasoline in Denmark, Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Sweeden, and Italy cost over twice the average US price.

Businesses are Raising Gas Prices In Response to Higher Fuel Costs

As fuel prices increase, so do the operating costs for businesses. In response, many are forced to raise their prices.

The “Trickle Down” is Leading to Rising Commodity Prices

The change in commodity prices from January 2010 to January 2011 is outpacing inflation – to put it mildly. See what I mean below.

PPI/CPI Inflation

To see the effect on the economy as a whole, just take a look at the indexes.

July 4th, 1776…The Logistical Tail of a Revolution

american-flagGiven my heavy business travel, I read a lot.  I read mostly non-fiction and a lot of history, so when I got an email from a Freightdawg reader about an interesting“infographic” put forth by Derby Logisticson the supply chain challenges of the American Revolution, I was interested.  Most interesting of all were the challenges the British faced in fighting a war 3000 miles away by sea.

The “logistical tail” of an army is the supply chain that keeps the beans, bandages and bullets flowing to the front.   This has been a strategic element of armies from the beginning of time.  It was critical to the defeat of Napoleon and later, the Nazi’s in Russia.  It was physical limiter that ultimately contained the Roman Empire.  It’s also why some of the finest minds in Logistics today are in the United States military.   It’s also one of the key reasons a bunch of farmers and militia folks lead by an aristocratic professional leader like Washington could challenge then eventually defeat the greatest superpower of the age.  

Check this article out on the supply chain that won the American Revolution.   Our country owes much to those who worked to move the materiel that General Washington needed but we also owe our fortunes to the Atlantic Ocean, which forced great hardship on the British.
