White Paper: Can Your Company Survive a Major Carrier Strike?


End consumers have never been more demanding surrounding customer service, order fulfillment and delivery timelines. A difficult market and ongoing freight recession have yet to do anything to quell growing expectations around visibility, transparency and timeliness. Consumer demands drive shipper expectations.

Utilizing fleet augmentation services is one way to achieve this, but these technologies have yet to become the norm in the brokerage world. FreightWaves teamed up with FRAYT to survey logistics providers about their use of fleet augmentation services.

The duo was interested in understanding the relationship between these solutions and preparedness for potential supply chain disruptions, particularly carrier strikes.
