As we reflect on 2022, one thought comes to mind: we made it! While it looks like Covid is in the rearview mirror, we’re still dealing with its effects in major ways. Disruptions to the supply chain continue to throw up roadblocks to businesses around the world.
As you know, we have faced many logistical challenges in the last twelve months. Top issues in 2022 included manufacturing delays, warehouse shortages, store closures, and rising transportation costs.
At AmerTrans, we know how stressful delays, shortages, and inflation can be, and we’re glad that we can be there to help in these tough times. As our CEO Matt Klein notes, “it’s been a tough year for everyone [dealing with supply chain and logistics] and we’re grateful for all of your business and commitment from our clients. We want to say thank you for your business.”
Heading into 2023, uncertainty remains in the global economic forecast. That same uncertainty exists in logistics as well. While fuel prices seem to have cooled, diesel prices remain higher than past levels, and we anticipate any respite may only be temporary. In addition, the American Trucking Association suggests that the truck driver shortage that eased slightly in 2022 may not last.
It can seem overwhelming to think about how to operate successfully in such challenging times.
