Oftentimes, when a receiver rejects a cargo load, it costs a significant amount of time, fuel, and transport products. From the viewpoint of sustainability, it may negate some prior fuel efficiency and cost savings.
It doesn’t end here, some carriers may end up canceling their next shipment. As a result, they’ll need to spend a lot of time and effort in rerouting. It can very well hold up the entire disposition process of the trucks for months in many cases.
Moreover, if you look at the problem from the perspective of shippers, even a single product rejection incurs additional shipping costs and may cause the entire truckload to go to waste. To make the matter worse, this may strain the relationship with the carriers and receivers.
