When you’re looking for ways to benefit your company’s supply chain, you probably look for ways to reduce time or costs in various departments. In most cases, this comes down to the way you might ship, store or produce the products you sell.
For decades, carriers have been subject to the Carmack Amendment’s exceptions and statutes that define liability. However, the surge in manufacturing and increasing presence of international shipping have changed the way shippers look at the Amendment.
In 1935, Congress passed legislation to help prevent carriers from being subject to unqualified cases of fraud and freight loss claims. Previously, carriers were held liable for any damage that occurred to a shipment while in their possession. However, this meant that carriers were on the financial hook even when damage was not their fault.
Growing woes over a forthcoming capacity crunch are not going away anytime soon. But, the capacity crunch may have a major impact on the freight driver shortage and vice versa. In a sense, fewer drivers mean that capacity will grow tighter. Yet, as capacity shrinks, the incentive for drivers increases.
The freight capacity crunch has dominated supply chain and logistics since 2014, and many shippers fear it will arrive sooner than many experts believe. However, the capacity crunch may be less severe than anticipated, and it could easily reflect growing pains in the industry.
The freight industry of today is evolving rapidly. It is no longer bound by the traditional constraints of the economy, and Amazon is gearing up to begin expanding to be the best of the global freight shipping providers. As a result, your company needs to think about these freight shipping trends and how you can prepare to respond to them as soon as possible.
