“We’re helping our customers who sell the essential items consumers need. Our brokerage team is handling the extra overflow to complement the customer’s own fleet. We’re helping find the extra capacity they can’t handle. For instance, last week a lot of supermarkets ran out of toilet paper. That’s not happening as much this week because we’re able to pick up those loads,” said Drew Wilkerson, president of the company’s North American Transportation business. “One of the other things we’re seeing is more business from customers we haven’t worked with recently. We’re helping our long-term customers a lot, but we’re also hearing from customers we haven’t heard from in a while, and helping them handle all that extra capacity.”17 December 2021
