Limited truck driver and asset availability is shrinking shipping capacity for many chemical manufacturers. Noel Perry, an FTR senior consultant, noted that the industry is several hundred thousand drivers short of raising capacity to meet demand. Some chemical shippers simply take the route of least resistance and increase capacity by paying more for freight; others may find it nearly impossible to contract new carriers at any price as their competitors vie against them for available resources.

To increase capacity by volume companies must replace there freight with new one designed specifically for businesses and that can store more and few new trucks can run on BIO-Fuel that saves cost and environment.
