November 8th, 2022// Supply chain companies are preparing for what executives are calling a muted peak season. Large retailers and manufacturers alike are seeing lower demand for shipping across multiple U.S. shipping markets.
Several large operations say they are seeing freight demand slow instead of pick up as businesses move into the upcoming holiday season, which is typically the busiest period of the year for carriers. According to David Yeager, chief executive of Hub Group Inc., this could stem from the softening economy.
Retailers are getting hit particularly hard by this. To prepare for unexpected supply chain delays, some retailers purchased large amounts of stock. Now all that inventory is sitting on their shelves with the potential not to be sold without customer demand.
