How the Stimulus Can Help Transportation
Congress recently passed a $1.9 trillion relief bill, and it has been signed by the President. While the main focus is on the economic relief for millions of Americans and businesses, $56 billion of this is expected to go towards transportation. And while much of that will be used for airlines and public transit agencies, it is still a benefit for the domestic transportation and trucking industries. An additional $59 billion will be going to help small businesses, many of which are local and regional trucking firms.
The much-needed aid can help many smaller trucking firms who are still feeling the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. While trucking is an essential industry and drivers were able to stay on the road over the last year, many carriers still lost revenue due to losing the business of non-essential customers. While the package may not offset all of those losses, it is certainly a welcome relief for many companies and individuals.
The hope is that the stimulus will boost the economy as a whole, which should have a positive effect on the trucking industries. As more people become able to buy things, more orders will be placed, hopefully providing a boost to manufacturing across the nation. As we all know, more manufacturing means more shipments, and that is beneficial for anybody in logistics and transportation.
While the stimulus will do a lot to help logistics companies, the best way to help them is for manufacturers to partner with carriers in handling their shipments. A trusted carrier will be able to find the best solutions for any shipment, and provide your business with the best service possible. Partnering with a carrier will get your shipments where they need to go, ensuring that your customers are satisfied and you’ll be satisfied as a result.
