Santa knows a thing or two about delivering. But based on the latest trends, he will need some help from truckers in Nashville, TN, and nearly every city across the country to get goods to arrive on time this holiday season.
Bay & Bay Transportation understands this need and is looking to hire over-the-road and local delivery drivers in Nashville, TN, and in many other locations as shipping experts predict a holiday capacity crunch this year.
The number of containers showing up at U.S. ports suggests there are strong expectations for the holiday shopping season. Apparently, buyers for several retailers did plan ahead by ordering early in attempt to avoid more uncertainty created by new tariffs and the unfolding trade war between the United States and China.
Shipping experts say the container volumes also suggest that retailers and e-tailers are betting it will be a strong as well as festive holiday in terms of consumer demand and sales.
All of this capacity creates an extra need for delivery. From less-than-full loads to distribution centers to small, last-mile delivery services, the need for truck drivers and other helpers who can deliver on time is expected to be pushed to the limit this year.
At this point, no one knows what impact the electronic logging device mandate is going to have overall on the ability of companies like Bay & Bay to meet delivery expectations. There is also the possibility weather will toss another wildcard into the mix as 2018 has once again been a year of unpredictable storms.
Bay & Bay’s operations and logistics specialists know they’ve got a big challenge to help truck drivers navigate during this busy end of the year, and they’re counting on some extra help on the road to meet those high expectations.
