Another aspect of Porter’s Five Forces model is the threat of substitution, or how easy it would be for another company to take over the present business by innovating in some way. The threat of substitution is low but still present in the trucking industry. Due to the fact that a large majority of freight moved in the United States is moved by truck, it would be difficult to shift to a different mode of transportation. However, there are still other methods of travel that can be used, for example freight can be moved by airplane or by train within the United States. These alternative modes of transportation tend to be more expensive though, meaning it makes more sense for a company to simply purchase the services of a trucking company. In
Strategic analysts often use Porter’s five forces to understand whether new products or services are potentially profitable. By understanding where power lies, the theory can also be used to identify areas of strength, to improve weaknesses and to avoid mistakes.

Organizations have extended the boundaries of their firm by concentrating on technical capacity or market knowledge or both, leading to horizontal, vertical, concentric, or conglomerate diversification (Ansoff, 1965). In horizontal diversification, since firms operate within the same economic environment, there is little flexibility (Laurila and Ropponen, 2003) – they remain sensitive to the same cyclical fluctuations and competition (Wiersema and Bowen, 2008). Synergy, along with extension of technological range, is a major trigger for achieving efficiency of scale and increased market power (Helfat and Eisenhardt, 2004). Resource specificity, complete information, and less resistance from organizational structure influence the decision, although regulations and industry characteristics have little impact (Shaffer and Hillman, 2000).

While vertical agreements can potentially increase consumer welfare by facilitating coordination through the value chain, horizontal agreements are generally a breach to antitrust laws.
Organizations make operational adjustments in order to survive global competition. When profits decrease, a cost reduction is usually suggested in order to return business to a profitable position by merging or acquiring new businesses (Shook & Roth, 2010). In response to a weakness in the current environment, economically, or competitive threats, there is a need for change. Mergers occur when two companies combine their operations and participate as equal partners in order to achieve strategic and business objectives (Sudarsanam, 2003). An acquisition occurs when one company takes over a smaller company and obtains control to determine how the combined operations will be managed (Shook & Roth, 2010). M&A are rational and strategic alliances
