Though delays on the northbound I-65 detour near Lafayette are down to about an hour, a long closure could add up to serious money for trucking companies, transportation officials said.
“The cost is going to be huge,” said Barbara Hunt, vice president of the Indiana Motor Truck Association. “It adds hours of service for the trucking companies and causes delays for the shippers and receivers.”
The association is surveying transport companies to get an estimate of the cost. It also has been keeping the national organization, the American Trucking Associations, updated on the highway shutdown.
CargoNet reported this week that more than $19.5 million in truck freight was stolen in the second quarter — an $8 million increase from the same period last year.
California had the most number of thefts with 36, followed by Texas with 35 and Florida with 27.
Twenty-nine percent of cargo thefts occurred at truck stops and parking lots. Nine percent were classified as fictitious or fraudulent cargo pickups, and 2 percent were violent, either hijackings or armed robberies.
