June is interesting for the transportation industry; household goods season kicks off, construction projects commence and supply chain activities across industries ramp up.
In this episode of Beyond The Road, Eric outlines some of the things shippers and logistics managers should think about when planning out their shipments during June. By prioritizing trailer type flexibility and maintaining a solid network of carrier partnerships, June's 30 days shouldn't be too challenging.
Here are the things you should keep in mind when arranging transportation in June:
- Household goods season, tightening dry van capacities
- Construction and agriculture machinery transportation
- Produce season kicks off in the South/Southeast
- Frost laws are gone across the northern U.S.
- Memorial day and the Fourth of July will be disruptive
- Avoid short-mile loads over the holiday weekends.
