COVID19 continues to impact the trucking business. A massive shortage in capacity has led to a significant spike in the cost to move cargo from the West Coast. That, coupled with the unprecedented challenges of operating in California have dramatically increased the cost of doing business.
As a result, Sterling Transportation will be implementing a 9% West Coast Surcharge effective July 20, 2020.
This surcharge will be applied for all shipments moving from the West Coast to Florida. Accessorial charges and fuel surcharges will remain separate.
