In this next installment of Trucker Tools Industry Experts series, our four panelists will dive into today’s trucking market and examine the macro and micro factors underpinning the historic capacity crunch.
The surge in freight is hitting the industry at a time when qualified truck drivers remain an ever-shrinking resource, operating costs are on the rise across the board, and another surge of COVID infections threatens to tank the nation’s nascent economic recovery.
Topics to be discussed:
• How do shippers and their brokers not only operate successfully today, but plan for the future in this environment?
• What alternatives can brokers take when capacity is unavailable?
• What role can technology play to help ease the crisis?
• How can shippers and carriers get creative and make the best use of available capacity?
Join the conversation and gain insights into these and other timely issues as Trucker Tools once again convenes its panel of industry experts. Moderated by Prasad Gollapalli, Trucker Tools’ founder and chief executive, this interactive session will present a lively discussion among three of the transportation industry’s most respected and knowledgeable voices, who collectively have over 80 years of experience covering the trucking, logistics and supply chain fields:
Bill Cassidy, Senior Editor, Trucking, The Journal of Commerce
