The State of Collaboration in Freight

In this episode Kyle will express his mission of making sure that in the fast moving pace of today’s freight environment, that we all collectively remember the critical role that truck drivers play in the movement of freight and why establishing long term partnerships with drivers & increasing overall collaboration in freight will help move the industry forward in a sustainable manner, despite massive disruption in the freight industry going on thanks to market forces & technology.

In this “The Freight Project Podcast” episode you’ll hear Kyle answer the following:

  • Has he seen any difference in TMS adoption in the United States & Canada or any other freight technology that has proven to provide more collaboration in freight between all parties involved?
  • In Kyle’s conversations with carriers, 3PLs, and truck drivers, is he seeing resistance to freight technology and collaboration in freight adoption and what are the reasons why they’re resistant to that adoption?
  • Are those in freight, including shippers & drivers, thinking long term and strategically about how collaboration in freight, brought on by the use of technology, will yield desired outcomes?
  • With more conversations expressing the importance of using technology to increase collaboration in freight, are we on the tipping point of overall technology adoption in freight?
