The team wants to 'start a conversation' about how to manage the growing pressures on resources that are likely to have a considerable impact on 'on-time' deliveries, budgets and haulage availability.
A major shortage of drivers is among the key challenges facing the industry, which is being compounded by other factors across the logistics and supply chain sector.
Road hauliers are calling for greater flexibility over load and unload times and also a new scheduling timetable so multiple deliveries can be completed within a dedicated period.
Warrant Group's Managing Director Ian Jones said the industry needed to work together and embrace the emerging new landscape.
"We want to start a conversation with clients about how to meet the new challenges within the road haulage industry.
"Pressures on resources are set to intensify to unprecedented levels in 2019.
"The old ways of working are already rapidly disappearing and unless we act now, 'on time' performance will undoubtedly decrease.
"It requires a new approach and a fresh mind-set among both importers and exporters.
"There will be cost pressures that will have to be taken into consideration and procurement professionals will need to re-evaluate their processes and priorities.
"Our clients need to be aware of these challenges so we can work collaboratively and prepare for what lies ahead."
