Dozens of companies have posted record gains after the first quarter of 2021 as the freight market kept riding the momentum caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Is this a trend that will continue through the rest of the year? Or will the overheated market lose steam?

On this episode of Great Quarter, Guys, Andrew Cox debates how long the wave will last and welcomes FreightWaves Director of Passport Research J.P Hampstead to contribute to the debate.

The two break down how several brokerages fared during Q1 and what the outlook is for those groups for the rest of the year. 

Cox and Hampstead also welcome Chad Crotty, vice president of sales in North America for DDC FPO, to the GQG stage to pick his brain about first-quarter earnings and the fate of the freight market going forward.
