How Inland Ports Solve Today's Pressing Supply Chain Challenges

Brand Studio content for   

With a strong U.S. economy, a deteriorating driver shortage and recently implemented trucking regulation, U.S. supply chains today are struggling with capacity.

Inland ports are emerging as a robust, cost-effective, environmentally friendly and versatile solution to the many challenges shippers face, making these facilities increasingly valuable for global supply chains.

In this playbook, you will learn about how inland ports can alleviate:

  • The volume of container imports and number of high-capacity “post-Panamax” ships using the Panama Canal
  • Trucking capacity constraints caused by driver shortages and electronic logging device mandates that enforce hours-of-service limits
  • E-commerce customers accustomed to speedy delivery of their goods at little or no cost
  • High-priced and limited real estate options in the areas surrounding major ports
  • Potential shortages of skilled labor near seaports and negative impact of high carbon emissions
