Automotive Shipping And The Impacts Of COVID-19

To say automotive shipping has experienced a roller coaster ride of fluctuation in 2020 would be an understatement. Before the COVID-19 outbreak, new auto sales were reeling, with the industry notching impressive gains year over year.

Then, the pandemic took hold of the market and turned it upside down, which leads to the question, how has the automotive industry faired since the early days of COVID-19?

  • Has the industry recovered? If so, how well?
  • How has cross-border shipping been impacted?
  • Has supply and demand shifted due to the outbreak? If so, how drastic has the shift been, and how are shippers coping?

To answer these questions, we partnered with FreightWaves to conduct an original research study to survey shippers on the fluctuations in automotive demand, shifting dynamics in cross-border shipping, expectations around shipping costs, and the role of technology in mitigating supply chain risks.
