Harvey Impacts U.S. Trucking

Hurricane Harvey has disrupted 10% of the trucking industry in the United States. Due to the already tight nature of the trucking environment, many loads will be left on docks across the country. Transportation officials will be tested to try to get loads picked up and delivered in a timely manner. As was with the results of Hurricane Katrina, this event will show significant pricing increases. The rates are expected to increase 7-10%…a small price to pay considering the death and destruction that Harvey has done.
