Analyzing the Journal of Commerce Intermodal Savings Index and Service Scorecards

Tuesday, 26 September

1:45 pm - 2:15 pm (CST) / 26/sep/2023 06:45 pm - 26/sep/2023 07:15 pm

Whether you’re a domestic intermodal shipper or an intermodal provider, did you know the Journal of Commerce has a wealth of data? Our Intermodal Savings Index and Intermodal Service Scorecards provide proprietary and valuable data to the industry. The Journal of Commerce Intermodal Savings Index measures how much an average intermodal shipper should save using 53-foot containers compared with truckload alternatives. Our goal is to fill in the gap with intermodal rates to compare with industry-leading information from trucking data providers such as DAT Freight & Analytics. Our Intermodal Service Scorecards are customer satisfaction surveys to determine who are the best railroads and who are the best asset-owning and non-asset IMCs in the US. The world is filled with ways customers can review services and products, from Amazon and Google ratings to services such as Angi’s and Home Advisor. Our approach is to apply this model to intermodal using crowd-sourced data to identify the top service providers, and why they're successful. In this session, we'll go over the latest findings in both datasets and how shippers can make informed decisions using the information.
