We’ve said it before…the international ocean transportation environment has changed. There is less money for the ocean carriers which leads to less money to the terminal operators which leads to inefficient operations which leads to the burden being placed on the driver. This practice is NOT sustainable. The driver cannot be expected to shoulder the cost of the inelasticity in the supply chain.
We cannot continue on in a “business as usual” fashion. We cannot persist in asking drivers to “be patient.” The time for such is behind us. We need to evolve, or it will be done for us.
