Truck News on-road editor Harry Rudolfs was a guest on this week’s edition of Trucker Radio News & Talk, to discuss the Uber model and how it could affect the trucking industry. Uber itself is experimenting with cargo delivery in Hong Kong and spin-off apps have been created specifically to manage freight logistics.
Also on this week’s show, Truck News editor James Menzies talks about a new OTA program that calls on drivers to rate their shippers and receivers. Operation UpGrade will place shippers and consignees in a Detention Hall or on the Honour Roll as a result of your input.
Wendell Erb, CEO of Erb Group, joins the show to talk about the history of the family business as well as what it takes to be named by your drivers as one of the Best Fleets to Drive For.
Women in Trucking’s Ellen Voie discusses progress that has been made in developing female-friendly truck spec’s and Kevin Snobel discloses his list of the worst North American cities for truckers to visit.
Finally, co-host Tim Denis shares another Dufus – or in this case Bozo – Driver story. It involves a clown in a thong. The entire show – as well as archives – can be heard at www.TruckerRadioTalk.com. It is a partnership between Truck News and Alexis Broadcasting. A new episode is aired each Friday at noon.
