ITS Logistics VP of Drayage and Intermodal Paul Brashier was recently featured in an article in the Wall Street Journal discussing the unique ways importers, shippers and logistics companies are navigating the current challenges of the market.
From the article:
ITS Logistics has moved truckers from Jacksonville, Fla., to Charleston, S.C., to serve shippers who wanted to avoid the Port of Savannah, Ga., after ships started backing up offshore in August and September. It has considered moving other drivers to Houston but doesn’t take such steps lightly.
“For the drivers and for us it is taxing,” said Paul Brashier, vice president of drayage and intermodal at ITS Logistics, based in Reno, Nev. “When you reposition folks hundreds of miles away and they’re used to running back and forth locally and they’re home every night that’s a definite challenge.”
