Warnock asks Biden to hold shippers accountable

He added, “These costs are being borne most acutely by everyday Georgians and small businesses. There is no discernable increase in services provided by the global shipping providers or technological advances that justify the increase in costs. Carriers are profiting twice: first, when small businesses ship in necessary raw and intermediary goods, and again when these businesses deliver goods to customers, domestically or abroad. This behavior looks like price gouging, and it is inflicting serious harm on families and small businesses who have only just barely made it through until now.”
