Demand for freight services and the rates shippers are paying have improved to their highest levels in years, according to a key industry index. The DAT North American Freight Index for June jumped 24 percent over the May level and now stands 57 percent higher year-over-year, according to DAT Solutions, which operates a truckload freight marketplace.
When Göran Nyberg, president of Volvo Trucks North America, raised his Champagne glass to toast the debut of the company’s new generation VNL long-haul truck Tuesday, he had much to celebrate. After a prolonged slump, the market for trucks in the heaviest Class 8 segment is rebounding. And the turnaround has come just as Volvo has brought out new long-haul and regional-haul models, giving the company its freshest line up since entering the U.S. market in 1959.
Volvo Trucks unveiled the latest model of its Volvo VNL semi-truck Monday, the first full redesign of the trucking industry mainstay since 1996. The 2018 model, which will go into production in August at Volvo’s New River Valley assembly plant in Dublin, Va., features a new sleek aerodynamic design with a sloped hood that signals the look of future trucks from the Swedish vehicle manufacturer.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
