SMC3, a provider of transportation data services and technology tools, has updated the data within its CzarLite family of LTL base rate and benchmarking products.
Unlike individual carriers' base pricing systems, CzarLite's aggregated model offers a market-based price list derived from studies of LTL pricing on an industrywide basis. This system for developing base information supports the macroeconomic issues of LTL carriers without yielding to the micro operating and marketing issues of any individual carrier.
The latest CzarLite product update reflects the overall economic impact of rising expenses to transport freight, as well as recent changes within the U.S. Postal Service ZIP-code system and the Canadian and Mexican postal code systems. Consistent with prior updates, CzarLite base rate adjustments do not include the impact of fuel prices, which are in a constant state of flux and are addressed separately and individually by the carriers.
