Hot temperatures aren't the only thing typically ushered in with the dawn of summer. Trucking's "peak season" runs typically from August to October as retailers go all-in on holiday shopping. 

However, early signs – a massive shift to ecommerce, dropping retail inventories and record inflation – are serving as early warning signs that transportation's peak season might not peak at all. 

Guillermo Garcia, co-founder and CEO of freight dispatch service SmartHop, joins Matt and Jason on this week's 10-44 to discuss what could be in store in the months ahead, and how carriers can use these lean times to refine their business.
