Supply chain delays are not expected to be resolved any time soon. But e-commerce and omnichannel retail brands need not be held back by ongoing disruptions. Through a comprehensive multimodal freight strategy incorporating LTL and supported by a robust system, such as Redwood’s Logistics Platform as a Service (LPaaS) model, online sellers can manage peak

According to the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI), the trucking industry hauls about 70% of all freight shipped in the U.S. Medium- and heavy-duty trucks (“MHD trucks”) also produce about 23% of transportation-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. GHG emissions primarily drive the massive changes in the earth’s climate. The impacts we are already experiencing twill
