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.
