Logistics in 2018

Customers & Partners,

We trust all is well with your organization through Q1 of 2018.

We would like to share our insights on the changes we’re all experiencing and managing together. The transportation industry is the circulatory system of the economy, and we’re amidst a turbulent transition with capacity and costing. These changes have certainly affected your supply chain, and the ability to service and support your customers.

Key causes to these effects:

  • Economic Growth: The North American economy continues to grow and strengthen, increasing the demand for transportation services in all industries.
  • E-Commerce: The transition from brick and mortar retail to online purchasing trends have spiked demand for just-in-time delivery across all modes. Road, rail, ocean, and air.
  • Electronic Logging Devices: New federal legislation limiting the service time and distance of drivers. This has the greatest effect for many small and medium sized carriers, and especially the 650-1200 kms/400 – 740 miles service lanes. These were commonly 1 day service points, and are now commonly two day delivery. ELDs improve workplace and road safety, but limit capacity in our market.
  • Extreme Weather: This winter’s road conditions, and the ability to travel safely and deliver is also a key factor to the supply and demand crunch in Q1 of 2018. With the devastating natural disasters in the United States, much focus and many transportation resources have been committed to relief and rebuild.
  • Transport Driver Shortages/Capacity: The most important factor are the integral women and men in their careers, and the lack of growth in the profession. The certification and licensing costs have increased over 500% in the last 10 year, a significant startup investment. Furthermore, the average transport driver is 60 + years old, resulting in retirees with fewer new drivers in the succession plan to meet demand.

In response to these changes, here is what we can do together:

  • Driver friendly business: Communicate with your team and logistics partner to allow for more precise and efficient loading on site. This will allow for drivers to perform their pickups more effectively and allow for optimal output; thus limiting the costs of service.
  • Build on our long term Partnership: Let’s strategize together in the short and log term so that your budgetary and delivery expectations and requirements are met for your projects. We all operate in a seconds and minutes environment, with capacity in high demand, so please act on solutions and book while available.
  • Flexibility & Adaptability: In this live solution market, our team and partner network will assure you have all available resources and equipment with and for your suppliers, team, and customers.
  • Insight & Foresight: Please work with our team to provide as much information as possible, so that we can support accordingly. Let’s plan in advance.

We are experiencing an unprecedented supply and demand shift, similar to the housing market or fuel which will over time, correct to a new normal.

Our Dynamic Team thanks you for your continued support and for our partnership, and we look forward to growing together in 2018.

The Importance of Relationships

relationshipsIn business, collaborative relationships are the foundation for winning results together. Sometimes, the best friendships can be derived from business relationships. At Dynamic Connections, we truly value each and every relationship we build with our customers.

We wanted to highlight and share a story about one special customer and friend of ours: Tom Klinedinst.

When we first started began our partnership with Tom, he reviewed our website and connected with us via email: “After watching the episode of you with the gentlemen on Redemption Inc. and taking a look at your website, I wanted to drop you a note to let you know that I’m inspired by what you are doing. I think your message is incredibly powerful and brilliantly simple.”

He was able to relate to the story by sharing about his family and the obstacles they had overcome together.

He wrote, “About 1 year ago we found a terrific residential home for Tyler and he has thrived there. But after he left I started to think about how I could help other caregivers to cope, find strength, laugh, cry, or just be inspired to continue on. Currently I am working on some ideas with a local pastor (who is also involved with special needs folks) in how we can perhaps create luncheons which caregivers can attend in order to share our stories and draw strength from each other. I look forward to leading this someday soon. BUT, for now, I created www.mywalkwithtyler.com which is a simple blog that is intended to be a voice for caregivers, especially special needs parents, to hopefully make a difference in some way. I’m thrilled that the blog just passed 5000 page views and has reached people on 6 continents. I’ve had people reach out to me in very personal ways and let me know it has effected them. That is a beautiful thing.”

We have since kept in touch with Tom, who has recently told us about another young boy with autism.

Zachary, a brilliant, energetic, and caring 13 year old, has lost enthusiasm for his birthday.

The article can be found here, or online at the York Daily Record.

Dynamic Connections and the MAD Movement have put together a gift and card to send Zachary. If you have the opportunity, send him a card as well to the address below! It is small gestures like this that help make a difference in someone’s life.


Zachary Foller

Dover, Pa.  17315

Dynamic Connections and Tom were able to evolve a business relationship into a caring friendship with a mutual understanding and desire to good for others.

We want to thank Tom for sharing a part of his life with us, connecting us with Zachary, and allowing us to help make a difference together.

Carpe Every Diem! 🙂
