you. question. Good everybody. the morning, thank taking Hi, Appreciate

a chains side, Lance, as you like you anything think up been broad wonder perhaps market the that know, sort peak the car feels that we cycle. Just next sort little you transportation has I know, next some of an just XXXX prices for wondering could business year need bit, of comparison normalize, described based, terms of assuming just of fantastic macro transportation Used it tougher, backdrop in address little sounds know, and what sets dynamics bit a of if you a a obviously, you up being bit. supply in exceptional year? terms loosen about, little to year,

Lance Uggla

single used and Right. every know Well, I guess of that that, it's question the quarter. got Markit, merger you to IHS I

quarters XX about question. So, same that of

So the growth again, looking single question time obviously should a in high is at of is on you mind think be the it for good good does what And that's a because I all it's really our that a way. diversified digit transportation. – and time of it very it's analysts. And one

markets. used sometimes it's markets, sometimes new And it's car car

Sometimes it's and advertising. marketing

chain predictive in Sometimes know, supply it's, you analytics.

And its so but transportation, a opportunity but not car when look ample that. actually things in. the everything's say are at to regardless sales into performer And ticking, alone, with double general, we're high used strong many suppliers, digit single or reliant markets it's and of the digits, in can we environment it's that on I OEMs, peek new maintain needed automotive by the in
