Bill Luttrell, Senior Locations Strategist, Werner Global Logistics, Werner Enterprises

These expedited shipping costs are eroding much of the labor costs advantages and is affecting service levels. Companies have begun increasing inventories and looking at near-shore solutions to mitigate those issues.
