What I don't get is why such 'go slow' tactics are accepted by customers, and what difference it makes to the P&Ls of either the shipper or the customer.If customers are getting their stuff slower, they must be paying less / slower than they normally would. Would the shipper's higher fuel efficiency make up for its lower/ slower cash flow?Unless it's just about keeping the supply chain flowing, even if at suboptimal throughput, like a production line with more capacity than orders.Can't imagine this being accepted on either airfreight or land transport!-------------------------GG Home Fool
