    Trucking III: Solving Detention Problems

    Truck driver detention has been a problem for years, but driver delays have become much more disruptive, and costly, during the COVID-19 pandemic. Their impact cascades across supply chains, throwing off delivery schedules that likely already were disrupted because of supply shortages, lack of capacity at critical points, and a scarcity of labor. Shippers stung by higher costs and customer penalties are trying to move away from live loading and unloading and increase their use of drop-and-hook trailer pools, but they’re also investing in technology that improves yard management, moving freight and drivers through their facilities faster. That’s helping to improve efficiency, create capacity, and lower costs for all parties. Drivers get back on the road more quickly and make more money. This panel will explore what can be done to unravel the knot that detention ties in supply chains.
