Container store was surprised by the surge pricing experience they took on from their 3pl this past year. Based off of market demand, it doesn’t look like it is going to stop any time soon

The article alludes to a few months back when FedEx called surge pricing “the new normal”. The model doesn’t seem sustainable, companies need predictability on both the buyer and seller side. I imagine an equilibrium will be found or the Convoy/Uber Freight model will begin to prevail where they eat the costs to gain share.
