The Daily Dash: The price for vaccine distribution

The Daily Dash is a quick look at what is happening in the freight ecosystem. In today’s edition, tightness in the reefer market could complicate COVID vaccine distribution — or at least drive up the price of distribution. Plus, a charity group is helping truckers in need this year, and investment firms are buying into digital freight brokerage.

Reefer capacity could complicate vaccine distribution

As vaccine distribution is almost ready to accelerate, a refrigerated trailer capacity issue is likely to complicate the process and push rates even higher as tender rejections rise.

Zach Strickland dives into the numbers: Reefer capacity tapped out prior to vaccine release

Truck drivers sidelined from driving because of health concerns can find some help for the holidays through the Truckers Christmas Group Organization.

Federal regulators have granted J. J. Keller & Associates a five-year exemption that allows the company to mount its dashcam lower on a trucker’s windshield despite driver concerns of obstructed views.
