While demand for transportation services is intrinsically linked to volumes and demand, transloading has proven to be a resilient segment of the industry in the past. How has demand at facilities held up during the pandemic?

 

The pandemic hit supply chains hard, not just in North America, but across the world.  Many supply chain partners had to go back to the drawing board to really understand the full impact to their respective businesses and the markets they served.  First and foremost, we had to protect the wellbeing of our employees, particularly those working in an essential services capacity.  In conjunction, we worked collaboratively with supply chain stakeholders to right size resources at our transload terminals to ensure we kept supply chains moving during these challenging times.  We continue to work closely with our partners to flex resources where they are required to help our customers win in their end markets.
