For the past few months, truck drivers and dispatchers have been complaining that they get very low prices from brokers.
The situation is alarming because they can no longer cover the costs, which, unlike before, are much higher.
For the last 2-3 months, the price per mile offered by the brokers has been around $2, sometimes just over $1. Oil alone costs drivers about $0.75 per mile!
Do you know what would happen if the trucks stopped driving?
The first 24 hours: Hospitals will run out of basic supplies within hours. Service stations will begin run out of fuel. Assembly lines wit shut down, putting thousands out of work.
U.S. mail and other package delivery will cease. Food shortages will begin to develop.
Within two to three days: Supplies of essentials like bottled water will disappear. Garbage will start piling up. Service stations will completely run out of fuel.
Within a week: Automobile travel will cease due to a lack of fuel. Hospitals will begin to exhaust oxygen supplies.
Bottom lines: If trucks stopped, America would stop! Thank a truck driver today!
