MEMPHIS, Tenn., USA – Buckman continues to see the LTL industry struggle with capacity due to short staff and high volumes. We are seeing that 1 to 3-day delays are becoming more common and, in some cases, longer delays are being experienced. Truckload and tanker markets are both very tight and last minute and rush orders have become harder to cover.
Buckman is continuing to schedule LTL shipments with as much lead time as possible to ensure the product arrives in plenty of time.
Labor issues at ports, along with high volumes, are affecting the export market causing multi-week delays on unloading/loading ships. In addition, railroads are struggling to keep up with the volume coming out of ports which is causing major shipping container shortages around the country, especially in Memphis.
Please be assured that the Buckman team is dedicated to getting our product supply back to normal levels and meeting your requirements as quickly as possible.
