    Boats are backed up all the way across the pacific. Cannot get the cans out of the ports, no place to put them, even if there were enough container chassis, or trucks to carry them.

    a group of us buys a can worth of hatchery supplies out of Taiwan every year, we’re told the price of shipping will be double, plus count on demurrage because you can’t get to it at the port in time to avoid it.

    Well, I'm happy that number 45 didn't lead us into a nuclear Armageddon, as predicted he would. I woke up this morning and everything appears to be intact ;-)

    It’s almost as if we didn’t get into any new wars either. That has to be a first in the last 30+ yrs.

    I dropped Uber a couple weeks ago. I haven’t opened the convoy app in no telling how long.

    I ran a load 1.5 months ago for a broker at $1200....today same load on board I called on it and she says the rate is $800.....I tell her I ran the same load for $1200 and she proceeds to tell me well freight rates are declining......ohhhh really? Sure is funny im still getting $3-4 a mile from basically every other broker....

    It’s just business. They are testing the waters. No different then if you throw #### at the wall and see what sticks when negotiating them higher. Let us pray that some ignorant sucker doesn’t come along and take that $800.
