Cleveland Trucking Companies Seeking More Drivers

Following U.S. market trends, Cleveland trucking companies are among those seeking to hire more certified drivers amid sharp increases in consumer demand and tight shipping capacity. Some have been increasing wages since the demand for trucking spiked last summer, when the national economy first began emerging from lockdowns intended to stymie the spread of the coronavirus. That demand continued through the holidays and hasn’t slowed since.

At On Time Delivery & Warehouse, we provide qualified truckers with competitive pay, benefits, bonuses and a safe, positive working environment. Truckers are key to our operation, which includes delivering client goods to locations near and far – intact, on time, every time.

The Wall Street Journal reports shipping volumes are likely to remain strong for the foreseeable future, as the economy kicks into even higher gear with increased government aid and vaccination rates. Shippers will be searching for Cleveland trucking companies with competitive freight pricing, and we strive to deliver on this as well.

Impact of COVID-19 on Ohio Trucking Services

The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic has affected Ohio trucking services depends largely on the size and capacity of the trucking company, the kind of goods typically hauled and their diversity of services.

Motor carriers moving things like groceries, medical supplies and some retail goods have been busy. Those serving manufacturing industries have slowed following closures of non-essential factories. Overall, freight volumes are down, but capacity is up for spot market trucking services (one-time, inconsistent load volume orders for specific origins and destinations) and hot shot trucking (single-customer, expedited hauls that reduce downtime and often lower costs). Low spot market prices have reduced demand and volumes for longer-term contract trucking.

Businesses are doing what they must to survive. Our team at On Time Delivery & Warehouse offers a broad range of competitively-priced Ohio trucking services that can be quickly on-boarded and tailored to your needs – whether that’s now, three weeks from now or next year.
