These are uncertain times, but you’re not letting that stop you from keeping America running.
Only a couple of weeks ago, transportation was humming along as usual: freight volumes were normal and flat and carriers were only rejecting their contracted loads 4% of the time.
Since COVID-19 has gripped America’s conscious and economy in early March, carriers have been faced with an unprecedented surge in shipments that eclipsed records previously set in 2018.
Freight volume seemingly grew +30% over night and tender rejections grew to their highest point in several months.
This surge has forced truckers to spend even more time on the road and less time with their families… all to keep grocery store shelves full and pharmacies fully stocked.
From everyone at Loadsmart, we want to thank our carriers for their work and acknowledge their sacrifice.
And while you’re out there for all of us, we’ll be here for you.
