Following our previous communications on this matter, we provide you some relevant updates about the trucking sector which is facing a general decrease of qualified drivers both in the USA and in Europe.
The situation is negatively impacting both on delivery time and on pricing. As a consequence, the entire intermodal freight forwarding sector is suffering for the difficulties that arise.
Carriers have announced a general trend towards price increase for both road and rail freight forwarding starting from 2019. The first cause of the mentioned increase is represented by higher salaries of drivers.
The image below shows you the current scenario.
We shall inform you about every development.
Please, feel free to contact our offices for further information.
