Freight Madness!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Hang on, why are freight prices so crazy?


There are a few things we need to consider.

For starters, the economy is getting stronger, meaning manufacturers are shipping more and taking up trucks (and loading docks). Good for some, but bad for others. Let’s not forget the extreme weather we had in 2017-2018, making trucks really hard to come by. Lastly, a new federal safety rule was launched back in December that now requires truckers to track their hours with electronic devices- remember time matters.

The bottom line, industries all over the country are feeling the impact, including printing. Customers need to be aware that freight prices will be affected and these are just a few reasons why.


*NMG Corporation will continue to do its best by setting realistic expectations for our customers when it comes to freight and we encourage others to do the same.

A Message from our Chief Financial Officer:

Hello All,

Please see the attached article from the Wall Street Journal (below). Now more than ever it is extremely important to satisfy our customers’ needs, not only from a production standpoint, but a budgetary standpoint. Currently, we are seeing volatile fluctuations when quoting freight for our customers. The attached article below lends some insight to the cause of these variations.

We are doing our best as a company to set realistic expectations for our customers and please keep this in mind when quoting freight to your customers. The price you get today may very well be off from the actual price when you call to schedule your pick-up/delivery.

Just thought we would share this recent information with all of you. Best wishes and we hope you continue to have a successful 2018!
