New year, same supply chain — Freightonomics

Changing the calendar doesn't fix the supply chain


The new year has come and gone, but supply chain pressures are continuing to linger and even getting worse in some cases.

Zach Strickland and Anthony Smith kick off their first episode of Freightonomics of the year talking about how the supply chain is still dragging after the holidays ended. The two talk about the strong truckload demand and how companies are struggling to catch up with that demand.

Smith and Strickland look at some SONAR data that shows these strong trends and talk about the market imbalances all across the country.
