Consulting Logistics Podcast Episode 003: The Truck Driver Shortage and the Rising Cost of Everything

“In 2018 shippers are paying historic rates for freight that takes longer to move. On this week’s podcast we cover the truck driver shortage, the rising cost of freight and consumer goods, as well as offer shippers some solutions to this dire issue.

We also take a look at the Cass freight index as published by Broughton Capital and discuss truckload pricing reaching it’s highest level since deregulation.

Then it’s on to the news with stories on UPS, Apple, surcharges, and why you should always elect for marine cargo insurance.”
