Acquisitions, spending, lockdowns and more — Great Quarter, Guys

Who’s spending money and who’s just spending time at home?

This episode of Great Quarter, Guys is sponsored by Emerge.

FreightWaves CEO Craig Fuller joins host Andrew Cox for this episode of Great Quarter, Guys to break down Knight-Swift’s entrance into the LTL space thanks to the acquisition of AAA Cooper out of Dothan, Alabama. 

Cox brings on retail and fashion consultant Rick Helfenbein to talk about how the latest wave of COVID-19 affecting Bangladesh will put stress on the fashion industry. He discusses how this lockdown may affect the production of garments used to satisfy holiday buying demand and what it means for extended shipping delays. 

FreightWaves Lead Economist Anthony Smith provides an update on consumer buying behavior and economic trends. He lays out “the good, the bad and the Anthony” when it comes to consumer sentiment and the latest employment numbers.
