Innovation, Peak Horse, Transportation, and a Crystal Ball
The supply chain and trucking industry is consistently undergoing disruptions. With the rapid development of new technology, the industry landscape can look entirely different each year, quarter, and month. Meanwhile, consumers are demanding more, and companies are expected to handle the demand influx swiftly and efficiently.
