A nice post from Yossi Sheffi of MIT. He’s right about automated trucks– too far in the future to have much effect on the driver shortage, and won’t do anything to improve the image of trucking or to improve operational conditions. That’s up to real people committing to change, which is slow in coming in supply chains!
Be sure to read to the end for Yossi’s joke about automation!
