Have you heard about the looming driver crisis? Or thought about how it could impact your transportation costs? In Mike Regan’s 2:00 Minute Warning, he explains why this is an issue and how a potential crisis can be averted.

Why did we produce this 2:00 Minute Warning?

We’re sharing this update to encourage shippers to take a look at some of the common sense solutions that can be relied upon to manage through this looming crisis.

A shortage of drivers is an issue since it causes one of two things to happen: either carriers need to pay their drivers more and have higher rates, or they need to take a look at how their equipment and drivers are utilized, potentially reducing their availability.

However, this crisis can be averted.

One recommendation is to have a genuine spirit of collaboration between you and your carrier partners. Another key recommendation is that you make a genuine commitment to being a carrier-friendly shipper.
