SERVICE ALERT: Increase in LTL Service Failures

LTL service failures have increased significantly since June. This issue is occurring across the board, affecting nearly all regional and national carriers.

The reason: a shortage of experienced drivers and terminal employees.

LTL carriers are operating shorthanded with portions of their workforces in COVID-19 protocols. In some cases, carriers have temporarily closed entire terminals affected by COVID-19.
