On this week’s Drilling Deep podcast, host John Kingston talks with FreightWaves Markets Editor Mark Solomon on the radical plan to turn giant XPO into a more focused LTL carrier and send its other parts off to different futures, no longer under CEO Bradley Jacobs. We’ll also talk about the decline in diesel prices and what that might mean for freight rates.
John has an almost 40-year career covering commodities, most of the time at S&P Global Platts. He created the Dated Brent benchmark, now the world’s most important crude oil marker. He was Director of Oil, Director of News, the editor in chief of Platts Oilgram News and the “talking head” for Platts on numerous media outlets, including CNBC, Fox Business and Canada’s BNN. He covered metals before joining Platts and then spent a year running Platts’ metals business as well. He was awarded the International Association of Energy Economics Award for Excellence in Written Journalism in 2015. In 2010, he won two Corporate Achievement Awards from McGraw-Hill, an extremely rare accomplishment, one for steering coverage of the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster and the other for the launch of a public affairs television show, Platts Energy Week.
