    InlandTech IV: Brokerage Technology as a Bulwark Against Vicious Market Cycles

    There is perceived wisdom that tough markets weed out the weakest actors, and this is certainly true in the world of freight brokers. Down markets depress rates and eventually compress margins, and so brokers that come in during an up cycle but without the fundamentals to weather a down cycle get flushed out of the system. But that hasn’t necessarily happened in the post-pandemic comedown. There are various variables to explain this, but one is that technology can help brokers weather the downturns more effectively. In this session, a freight broker, a broker TMS provider and a broker-focused pricing technology vendor will discuss how technology is making businesses more efficient and durable, and what that means to shippers reliant on those brokers.
