Tight Trucking Market USA

Submitted on February 8, 2018 by Steve Dew of Interglobal Forwarders in USA

The USA trucking capacity is currently very tight and we are facing challenges and increasing cost in FCL, LCL, and Intermodal Trucking.  Some Factors at the root of this issue include: * Qualified Truck Driver Availability * Federal Government Mandated ELD(Electronic Logging Devices) * High Economic Demand.  All of these factors combined with several severe winter weather conditions in various parts of USA have combined to create maybe the tightest trucking capacity I have seen in 20 years.  This trend may continue for some time to come so plan ahead and allow extra time for trucking arrangements.

SIF GROUP informs that, yesterday, the Land Transport Association declared a national strike for indefinite time.
The Port of Montevideo will be affected in their operations, and probably also be affect the international transport.


Submitted on February 24, 2017 by Jordi Baez of Newblock in Spain

Dear fellow partners:

After several meetings among Unions and the Infrastructures Ministry in Spain, a strike has been finally called in all Spanish ports, as of 6th March.  If this strike is not called off, it will distort all handling operations, vessel calls and sailings.  We expect serious delays, call cancellations and backlogs.

A 2014 E.U. Directive is now mandatory and the Spanish Government has just signed the bill today; thus we do not expect changes in the Unions position. Please feel free to contact us for updated information.
