NEXT Trucking Mitigates COVID-19 Challenges Across Supply Chain

Addresses Drayage, Capacity and Storage Concerns for Shippers of Essential Goods

EL SEGUNDO, Calif.--()--NEXT Trucking, a FreightTech pioneer that connects shippers and carriers, has been instrumental in executing supply initiatives for many of America’s largest shippers, offering innovative drayage solutions, flexible storage and transloading facilities and on-demand capacity. As companies alter their supply chains, NEXT has served BCOs, steamship lines, terminals, and 3PLs, with flexible solutions that meet the needs of a rapidly shifting landscape.

  • One of the largest online retailers in America saw a capacity shortage limiting its ability to move goods from distribution centers into local facilities. NEXT met its client’s needs within a day, using NEXT’s hybrid model to coordinate deliveries throughout the U.S.
  • A top 5 U.S. pharmacy has been relying on NEXT to address all of its drayage needs. As a result of partnerships with terminals at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, NEXT can offer its shippers access to goods three to five days faster than other solution providers, allowing this client to ensure all of the essential products its customers need are available.
  • A multi-billion-dollar 3PL is utilizing NEXT’s yard space to avoid demurrage fees that many shippers face as a result of congestion at the ports. By relying on NEXT’s facility, just a few miles from the Port of Long Beach, this 3PL can ensure its shippers avoid unnecessary charges.

“Elasticity and flexibility are critical to success throughout the supply chain, especially in uncharted territory like the situation the COVID-19 pandemic created,” said Lidia Yan, Co-founder and CEO of NEXT Trucking. “We have tremendous relationships with the truck drivers who utilize our marketplace and are grateful for their contributions in keeping America running.”

To help shippers get through the disruptions caused by the coronavirus, NEXT recently published a white paper outlining best practices for logistics planners and professionals. The free report is available at https://blog.nexttrucking.com/best-practices-moving-essential-goods-covid19.
