It’s nice to be in demand, but how in demand is hard to predict for this summer for truck drivers in Minneapolis, MN, and the rest of the metro area.
While meteorologists worry about strong storms during the warmer months, a perfect collision of freight factors is sure to create some additional worry that no A/C unit can cure.
Growing online orders, driver shortages, and high-turnover rates among truck drivers combined with an increasing demand for shipping help is certain to boost delivery costs and make for a long, hot summer as freight haulers do their best to keep up.
Whether they work for bigger companies like Bay & Bay Transportation of Minneapolis or are independent operators, nearly everyone is trying to figure out the ultimate impact of electronic logging, which went into effect on April 1.
As the new ELD rules took hold, experts were predicting that the mandate threatened to squeeze an already tight supply of drivers and trucks. Logistics experts have extra work ahead as well. Truck drivers are being forced to wait longer at loading docks while cargo is either loaded or unloaded.
It could very well lead to higher shipping rates and a bigger tab for consumers as companies pass along what are sure to be higher costs.
Bay & Bay is responding with higher pay and some extras to make the assignments even more attractive to truck drivers. This includes late model trucks and options that include short and long-haul routes across North America. Bay & Bay is also offering highly competitive compensation and benefits packages to make every mile count.
It’s why Bay & Bay is known as a quality driven tradition. If you’re an experienced truck driver call (888) 801-3026 or visit our web page for more details and information about how you can join our growing team for what is sure to be a busy summer in the Minneapolis area.
