 GOING GREEN 01Green practices bring benefits beyond the environment.

By Augie Grasis

Over-the-road trucking has recently come under fire with new regulations for carbon emissions. New studies on the effects of climate change over the last decade have prompted authorities to take measures for reducing the carbon footprint in all industries, including the shipping industry. While the new administration has promised to ease back some of this regulation, the trend toward green practices is still a good idea; though the reason is perhaps less to “save the environment” and more to lower operating costs.

While the interconnectivity of people, goods and services – powered by increased mobility – has ushered transportation and logistics into the 21st century, there remains the need to operationalize the new, readily available data.

 TECH ED PIC 1Why delivery and logistics startups are failing.

By Joel Ritch

Commerce launched an unprecedented demand by consumers for merchandise not seen in the shipping and logistics industry prior. The attitudes of, and behaviors by, consumers on the other end of a package have changed dramatically.
