    How Carriers Are Paving the Way for Truck Drivers

    - by Transplace

    It’s no secret that capacity is a topic that will remain top of mind for both shippers and carriers in the near future. And in honor of Truck Driver Appreciation Week, we’d like to explore what carriers are doing to provide truck drivers with an efficient and quality experience throughout their routes, especially in light of recent capacity and driver shortages. During the 2015 Transplace Shipper Symposium, we spoke with a number of carrier management executives in truckload, less-than-truckload (LTL) and intermodal transportation modes to hear their outlook on planning for capacity.

    Next-Gen Supply Chain Management: There is No Single Solution

    - by Transplace

    Major transformational change in supply chain and logistics is certainly not a frequent occurrence, but it has happened with regularity throughout history. For example:

    The advent of the steam engine and the related rise of railway and steamship lines.
    The invention of diesel and turbine engines resulting in the supplanting of steam-powered vehicles with oil-fueled locomotives, trucks and airliners.
    The construction of limited-access super highways and the rise of trucking services.
