Truck drivers are demanding a White House intervention, shipping prices are so low and demand so high that drivers can't make a profit.

I would suggest "Air Cargo and Corona Virus" on youtube.  Very interesting, but I can't really do justice to it in an explanation.

While COGS between 2015 and 2018 have increased $932 million (nearly 30%), as % of revenue, COGS has declined in the recent years, partly due to an increase in digital downloads. This has been helpful in improvement of earnings margin from 19.1% in 2015 to an expected 24.2% in 2018. The growth in margins has been important to an over 50% jump in the company’s stock price over the same period. We discuss Activision Blizzard’s valuation analysis with context on contribution from revenue growth and expansion of valuation multiple in this dashboard. Below, we take a look at the key drivers of Activision Blizzard’s expenses and net margins. Look at our interactive dashboard analysis ~ ATVI Expenses: How Does Activision Blizzard Spend Money? ~ for more details.

Logistic nightmares, I saw industry charts showing significant drops in the cost of transportation, since there was much less to  move. Some truckers are just delivering to big shots and plebs have empty shelves to be stunned by.

The numbers are brand new and I don't have subscriptions to the financial papers. Numerous industry giants who require trucking are cutting employees while orders increase. Out sourcing seems to be easier and the Artificial Intelligence is about ready to replace the ware house worker.

Do I quote this figure (1-1.5%) correctly?
How did that happen? 8% in 2014.

Is there any link-proof for 8%? But you seem to be in the right range. I've googled a bit and the only relevant thing that's come up seems to be the following article, where it says somewhere by the end:

Quote
2009

Transportation and logistics related costs as a percentage of sales range from 9% to 14% depending on industry sector for companies who do not adopt a ‘Best in Class' management approach. 

By adopting a ‘Best in Class' logistics management approach, logistics related costs as a percentage of sales drops to 4% to 7% depending on industry sector. That's a delta of 5% to 7%
