Wow these days it just seems like such a struggle to keep ahead in business. In our business, we should have had the best May, June and July in years! But... always expect the unexpected right. Since the van lines reduced their capacity over the last several years, "black out dates" started very very early. I have heard that some Van Lines are still digging out with shipments that need to be picked up. Now that booking dates have eased up, we are starting to gain on it.
On the good side, we have been able to maintain our high service levels this summer, and have had very few late shipments as compared to what I have heard about other organizations.
