What to do When a Freight Carrier Goes Out of Business
If you are shipping with a freight carrier who happens to be having a fire sale of assets, is facing a dilution of preferred stock, has a loss of customers and dealing with a very competitive LTL market you may want to make sure you pay attention.
Shippers donít have to worry that much about the shipments that are in that carriers system. The freight carrier will keep a lean staff on board so they can make sure they clean out their system of all remaining freight. However, some of those shipments may take longer than normal to deliver.
But what you do need to concern yourself with is which carrier is going to handle your business now, and how competitive of rates you will be able to secure.
When a large motor carrier leaves the business it helps out the surviving carriers because of the influx of new business. Carriers immediately get very selective of the business they want to move, generally keeping the more profitable business and dumping less attractive business. Conversely, what this means for shippers is that rates rise up or it becomes impossible to negotiate aggressive rates.
Itís wise to start feeding that carrier some business to keep them in the mix. That way, when that inevitable day comes for your carrier you wonít skip a beat.
