Is Your Fleet Ready to Fight Back Against Lost Productivity Due to Excessive Detention Time?


July 22 workshop to help carriers gain insights, strategies for combating this issue

Did you know that according to FreightWaves, the bill for uncompensated detention in the trucking industry could be as high as $25 billion in lost productivity and economic opportunity?

Is your company ready to tackle this issue head-on? TCA and True Load Time are ready to help.

Make plans to attend a 90-minute immersive workshop scheduled for 1 p.m. Thursday, July 22 as True Load Time, Inc.’s Founder and CEO Kevin Nadeau, Director of Operations Shawn Kitchen, and Executive Consultant/Analyst Stanley Ray Hampton discuss:

  • Strategies to provide your fleet with realistic wait time expectations and appropriately plan routes, HOS breaks, and sleeping schedules;  
  • The different (and sometimes unforeseen) ways that excessive detention can affect your bottom-line revenue, both directly and indirectly; and
  • Tools to help you make informed decisions to keep the wheels moving and stay profitable, and more.

The True Load Time team will use specific customer location examples to illustrate how your operations can be negatively affected by excessive detention time, and show you how you can anticipate the delays and be proactive about building your wait times into your freight rates.

“Your doctor doesn’t give you two hours of his time for free, and neither does your auto mechanic. So why does the trucking industry still accept the idea of giving away two hours for free to every customer?” asked True Load Time’s Executive Consultant/Analyst Stan Hampton.

“It’s not enough to simply know what the rate is on a load and compare it against the mileage. You need to know how much TIME you’re going to commit to that load before you can know if it’s profitable,” added Director of Operations Shawn Kitchen.

“Truckload detention is the last dark corner of the trucking industry, so we built a big flashlight” said Founder and CEO Kevin Nadeau.
