Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
The trucking industry has hit a number of roadblocks this year, as driver retention continues to slip and the currents of trucking business are interrupted by the government shutdown. In spite of this, trucking businesses have been exercising their tenacity and acumen to find solutions to weather the changes in trucking. Known for being an industry comprised of small independent businesses, the competition in the trucking business can be fierce. Consequently, the competitive edge that transportation consultants can offer a trucking business can be the difference between a successful year and failure.
