Did you know that it has been reported that approximately 26% of contracted truckload shipments are being rejected because of the unavailability of drivers? These shipments are now spilling over into other transportation sectors, further hampering capacity and service.
In fact, the entire transportation industry is currently struggling with capacity constraints. There are several reasons for the congestion – from increased freight volumes and demand, including a pandemic-fueled e‐commerce boom, to many companies reporting very low inventories and the pervasive driver shortage.
As such, transportation companies are implementing several measures to eliminate volume and free up capacity in their networks including applying peak season surcharges, instituting embargoes, and discontinuing service to some customers. These actions have left a lot of uncertainty amongst shippers as they seek partners to keep their supply chains moving.
