Are you prepared for the Springtime shift in temp-controlled capacity? Demand for refrigerated trucks cooled after the new year, but top trucking industry executives are predicting a dramatic shift beginning in April, largely due to favorable growing conditions for produce.
Even if you aren’t in the produce industry, spring through early summer marks a period of tightened capacity, increased rates, and scheduling constraints—especially for companies shipping refrigerated products. Below is a snapshot of produce volume trends to watch:
Reliable Coverage & Stable Pricing for a Texas Food Shipper. Learn how LoadDelivered helped a frozen food manufacturer lock in reliable coverage and stable pricing mid-produce-surge on shipments moving out of their southern Texas plant.
Reducing Wait Times & Managing Rejections for a National Produce Shipper. Learn how LoadDelivered saved a produce company more than $700,000 in rejection costs.
Need to Lock in Reliable Capacity Now?
As trucks reposition their assets to produce-growing regions like Florida, Texas, and Southern California, we can help you control costs and become a shipper of choice.
If you have regular runs on lanes affected by produce season, consider setting up a time-specific contract with LoadDelivered in the next month.
