Truck Order Lead Time (days)

 lead time

Due to the increased volume, we are experiencing reduced trucking capacity in most areas in North America. This will result in delays picking up and delivering cargo. Please reference trucking dispatch heat chart to indicate dispatching time for each major area.

Note: Truck Order Lead Time (days) = Number of days lead time required to secure truck capacity. 2 days is standard/considered normal.
