OTR Solutions Clients Urged to Prepare for Holiday Peak Freight Season and Market Uncertainty
ROSWELL, GA (September 16th, 2022)
These are uncertain times. And when uncertainty is present, those who succeed are often those who prepare.
OTR Solutions clients and the trucking industry will be ready to answer the call.
America is witnessing rising inflation, a tightening labor market, and ongoing global conflict that have impacted the nation’s supply chain and consumer spending. We hope that these challenges dissipate and a reduction in inflation pressures comes soon.
However, these macroeconomic forces and the recent prospect of a potential railroad labor strike display just how fast the nation will need the trucking industry to be organized to meet freight demand.
Holiday Freight Peak Season is Coming Soon
With these recent events, we encourage our trucking community to be prepared for any unexpected increase in demand during the cyclical surge in traditional holiday freight season.
In short, demand is present for professional and reliable trucking – and OTR Solutions clients will deliver the goods.
