Jennifer Smith, of the Wall Street Journal, wrote a piece entitled, “Truckers Looking to Haul in Profits,” regarding the real and looming difficulties in the transportation and logistics and supply chain industries due to shipments exceeding capacity. She calls the current freight market,
“The most robust in a generation.”
Smith quotes an industry study demonstrating that brokers and trucking companies are taking advantage of high demand like never before.
An index of U.S. freight shipments by Cass Information Systems Inc. showed shipments by truck and rail rose 7.2% in June compared with the same month in 2017, with demand “exceeding capacity in most modes of transportation by a significant margin.”
What’s now becoming the usual story, America has a massive truck driver shortage. More truck drivers are needed to help the freight market stabilize back at least to its capacity.
