Recently the American Trucking Associations annual management conference and exhibition wrapped up in Las Vegas. There were some key particular themes involved for this conference including the we are mad as hell and we are not gonna take it anymore, muddy roads and blind curves, data is king, as well as a few others in particular.
- Former White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card emphasized the need to unite, emphasizing the “We the people” of the constitution.
- Everyone acknowledged that there’s a slump in truck freight and in truck sales, but no one had a clear answer for why.
- One area many agree may serve as a stepping stone toward autonomous trucks is truck platooning, which may be happening on U.S. roads as early as next year.
“Everyone acknowledged that there’s a slump in truck freight and in truck sales, but no one had a clear answer for why. Uncertainty, in fact, ruled the day.”
