Freight Capacity Crunch: How We Can Help

Is your business feeling stressed due to the freight capacity crunch? Unishippers can help minimize the impact.

Impact: Increased rates when at freight capacity

With a shortage of drivers and equipment, freight carriers have been raising rates in an effort to avoid unprofitable loads. Consequently, increased shipping costs have hit the bottom lines of companies across the country.

How we can help: Competitive rates

Unishippers leverages the combined shipping volume of our customers to help ensure the most competitive rates for your shipping.

Impact: Carriers at freight capacity

Digital Commerce 360 reported a 16% growth in online retail sales in the U.S. in 2017. The rapid growth of ecommerce has added to the impact of the driver shortage, filling the trucks that are on the road to total capacity.

How we can help: Access to trucks when you need them

Our trusted, long-term trusted relationships with the best freight carriers in the business mean we're able to offer more options at better prices than the competition.

Impact: Hassle to find rates and freight capacity
