Schneider publishes this regular transportation market update to keep you informed of freight market conditions, supply and demand influencers, and disruptions that may impact your supply chain.

As the market continues to evolve, we are here to help. Contact a logistics expert today and read the full April 16, 2021 transportation market update report here:
High import volumes and truckload demand are tighter than ever due in part to the urgency seen in the last year signaling an extremely active summer for domestic transportation providers.
The 2021 CVSA International Roadcheck is coming up quickly, taking place from May 4-6 this year, with an emphasis on lighting and hours of service. If violations are found either the vehicle or driver will be placed out of service, causing supply chain interruptions.
During last year’s Roadcheck:
Transport Canada will start “soft enforcement” of its new ELD rules on June 12; intra-Canada and cross-border fleets need to prepare their ELD plan now.
Complicating things further, “As of mid March, no ELD has been certified yet in Canada.”
Schneider continues to work with our carrier base to mitigate disruption for our shippers we are
actively solutioning to ensure your supply chain is prepared for this change.
