“Truckers’ toll: Delayed deliveries, higher prices forecast as industry struggles with driver shortage”

In fact, as transportation costs rise and are increasingly passed on to consumers, the driver shortage and the resulting capacity constraints are becoming “a nationwide topic of conversation,” says Matt Witten, carrier sales manager at AFN.

In this recent article from The Daily Herald, Matt shares his thoughts on how shippers are rethinking “how their supply chains are constructed” and why many are turning to 3PLs for solutions.
