North American shippers will see some relief once the busy 2021 holiday season ends, but not as much as past years. 2022 will see consumer spending drop, especially as government rent relief and fiscal stimulus are reduced or removed. But retailers and manufacturers will be working on replenishing record-low inventory levels back to normal. While transportation capacity is expected to be more readily available in 2022, there will be enough freight demand to keep prices higher than past years.1
