COVID-19 and other impacts are shaping the transportation industry in unexpected ways. As we move to the fourth quarter of 2020 and beyond, shipping business conditions may continue to fluctuate. To understand carrier rates in the meantime and where they may go in the future, LoadDelivered has identified four trends to watch.
Excessive dwell time (the total time a driver spends at a facility to deliver or pick up a load) is costly for both carriers and shippers. One effective solution is drop trailers.
Truckers throughout the transportation industry have experienced racism in many forms. It’s important to stay aware of racism and discrimination in our communities and especially in the transportation industry. Open and honest communication will help us get to a better place. By acknowledging the problem, committing to learn, and taking steps to address racism, we may be able to start moving forward together.
Retailers, distributors, and manufacturers alike are increasingly under pressure to reduce costs and increase speed to market. One proven model for meeting demand quickly is Direct Store Delivery (DSD).
As we move into the next phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses are beginning to re-open, but how that will play out remains one of the biggest questions of all. For now, shippers, carriers, and individuals can make a difference by taking steps to help businesses survive.
As panic buying and freight volumes surged in late March, distribution centers were in chaos. Several retailers suspended their vendor-compliance penalties to provide relief to their suppliers. Now that volumes are normalizing, suppliers are beginning to incur fines and penalties once again for performance issues. Carrier performance is more important than ever.
