Reduced Trucking Capacity Q4
Please be advised that moving freight across the country by truck will likely take longer in Q4 than it has historically.
Resupply to areas affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma has limited capacity, which in turn has increased transit times.
This lack of capacity, coupled with fuel increases, will also put pressure on rates, which could increase before the end of 2017.
We are asking that all partners budget an extra week of transit time for goods moving between our CA and NJ warehouses in either direction. We will keep you informed should we learn of any price adjustments from our preferred carriers.
