We have a new assistant editor at Truck News. Sonia Straface comes to us from Ryerson where she was a top performer. She’s a heckuva writer, but as all of us were at one time, she’s new to the transportation industry. So I sent her off to Delta Nu Alpha’s recent gathering, where the topic du jour was Freight Brokers: The Next Generation. You may recall our Power Brokers series of articles that ran a few months back, based on a roundtable hosted by Wheels Group’s Mike McCarron, who is unabashedly looking to consolidate the 3PL space. If you missed it, you can still catch Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.

During the aforementioned roundtable, the veterans of the industry were present. At the Delta Nu Alpha meeting, Mike brought together the young guns – leaders in the space who’re still under the age of 40. Despite being asked to cover a discussion that at times I’m sure sounded as though it was in a different language (we love our acronyms in this business – and I’m still unsure about what exactly a 4PL is), I think Sonia did a great job summing up the conversation in her report here. Check it out if you want to know what trends and issues are driving the future of the freight brokering business, through the eyes of the young leaders in the segment.
