U.S. Trucking Challenges (Update)


Crowley would like to provide you with this update regarding the significant challenges facing the industry as it relates to truck power in the U.S. and the cost impact associated with those shortages. As previously communicated, truck power shortages remain constant and continue to have a dramatic impact on the shipping lines ability to meet market demand, which continue to exceed current truck capacity.

Those factors that continue to put a strain on truck resources availability and costs include:

Crowley is committed to partnering with our core carriers to mitigate cost increases and maintain service levels that have been impacted due to the shortages. As we face these challenges together, we ask for your understanding if the aforementioned challenges necessitate adjustments to the inland rate factor, as well as your continued cooperation in providing as much lead time as possible when requesting Intermodal services. We will continue to monitor inland costs utilizing the CASS index and adjust inland rates accordingly.
