19 Mar Cross Docking Solutions for Small Quantities
2018 was a great year for the logistics industry. A variety of factors combined to create a capacity crunch beneficial to carriers. The hard enforcement of the ELD mandate, while not as disruptive as originally predicted, may have contributed to an ever-burgeoning driver shortage.
And the driver shortage itself, predicted by the American Trucking Associations (ATA) to be as high as 239,000 by 2022, continued to put pressure on capacity. When you add in hours of service (HOS) changes, rapidly changing technologies, a booming economy, and the Amazon effect, many over-the-road (OTR) trucking companies felt increased need for short-term, small quantity cross dock services.
And it looks like 2019 will be no different.
That’s where Blue Eagle Logistics comes in. Listen, it’s no secret that mega-shippers have built an extensive and widespread infrastructure comprised of distribution centers. These centers handle large trailer pools on a daily basis. But mega shippers aren’t the only game in town.
If you’re a small shipper or an OTR trucking company, you need solutions too. And the big guy trend of tying up driver time at both pickup and delivery sites while fighting detention payments will continue to put a dent in your budget.
You need a logistics partner looking out for your interests.
