As a trucking operation, you can’t assume everything will remain as it is currently within your freight lanes. It’s very important to have alternative freight sources in place for when a load cancels or is delayed, or when a shipper suddenly stops doing business with your company.
To avert an unexpected slowdown in freight and a reduction in revenue and cash flow, you need to constantly review your freight lanes. One of the best ways to keep your trucks and revenue rolling is having back-up freight in your established lanes.
