COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa- Bat Logistics, one of the most expeditious growing 3PL providers of Transportation, is utilizing Microsoft Azure Machine Learning and Predictive Analytics to develop an implement that will forecast what freight rates will look like in one to 12 months. The implement will be just one more value-integrated accommodation BAT provides to all its customers starting sometime in 2019

“Imagine the competency to lock into a contracted rate just before spot rates soar. Imagine the faculty to forecast how long spot rates will outperform contracting rates and vice versa. Imagine the facility to soothsay how peak seasons will impact freight rates,” verbally expressed Jarrod Marinello, executive of BAT Logistics.

BAT graded the precision of the prognostication implement for 15 months because the company wanted the highest precision it can get. With each test, the precision has amended, and the implement is currently at 60 percent precision. BAT believes, predicated on on the incrementation in precision over the past 15 months, that the precision will be at 75 percent some time in 2018. Anything over 75 percent precision offers extreme value.

BAT will implement 2019

OMAHA, Neb.– July 2, 2011 – Shippers should be aware of the Anti-Indemnity Laws that may have already been passed in their own state.

Shippers require their transportation providers to hold them harmless from any and all losses regardless of who’s at fault. The passing of the Anti-indemnity Law means indemnity agreements in motor carrier contracts are against state public policy and, therefore, void. That puts the balance of liability back to shippers doing business with motor carriers directly.

However, the Anti-Indemnity Law does not pertain to shippers contracting with 3pls/freight brokers. This could mean more business for 3pls/freight brokers, but at how much risk to themselves?
