COVID-19 poses even more challenges to the logistics industry this 2020. The impact of the coronavirus threat changes every day – and truck drivers have a chance of acquiring the disease due to exposure and longer hours at work.
Aside from that issue, the transportation rates remain low, as truckers battle over a few jobs since the moving of goods decreased during the crisis. Many operations are almost in a complete halt, and since there is no concrete estimation as to when this pandemic stops, a lot of trucking companies providing freight carrier services in Chicago, Illinois, and the whole country, face closure.
Reefer drivers risk their lives to deliver the essentials we need like food, medicines, and others. They also need protection – physically and financially. Although the authorities may have no control against the current situation, shippers and carriers are hoping that there will be a bounce-back in the economy, helping the industry to soon recover.
