To our valued customers,

 

As you may well already know, cross-country freight rates continue to soar and we have read that these rates could be 35 to 50 percent higher this upcoming Summer. Finding drivers continues to be an issue for many companies. Therefore, many carriers are concentrating on dedicated runs and contract business while neglecting to handle seasonal upswings. Rates will sky-rocket this Summer and some distributors will be hard pressed to fill their warehouses. We will do our best to stay on top of this situation and have instructed our buyers to go out 90 days in order to stock the products you require to run your businesses. However, we also wanted to take the time to make you aware of these obstacles we are all facing.

 

Many plants are also experiencing labor issues which hurts them in keeping up with production. This is why we have all seen or heard of price increases in products such as polypropylene, fruit, beef, pork, chicken and raw materials in general. Thank you for your understanding with these issues. Again, we will do our best to get over these hurdles ahead of us all.
