What is spring break for many is conference ready time for others. If you’re on break, we hope it’s a relaxing and safe one. We will be at Operations Summit 2018 in Columbus, Ohio starting on Monday and MODEX 2018 here in Atlanta. We hope to meet you if you will be attending either of these shows. Feel free to reach out to Bruce Strahan to set up a brief time to connect. We would love to introduce ourselves to you – or say hello to old friends.

  • At Ops Summit we will be at booth #123 and MODEX at booth #B3614. At the Ops Summit, partner Steve Mulaik will be presenting in two sessions. At Ops Summit,  you will have a chance to win a pair of Apple AirPods and at MODEX you’ll have a chance to win the new iPad, just being released. Come by the booth, sessions and especially schedule a brief introduction at either show for an extra entry into the giveaway.

  • WSJ reported that Truck driver salaries on the rise, as reported by the American Truckers Associations. Salaries rose between 15-18% reportedly. Good news for truckers across the board, as “private-fleet drivers earned as much as $86,000 annually in 2017, up from $73,000” in the group’s 2013 survey. The survey says the median salary for a driver working a national, irregular route (basically entry-level driving) is $53,000, up $7,000 or 15% from 2013.
  • Supply Chain 24/7 has an interesting piece on Building a Digital Supply Chain Ready for the Future. It’s a good look at what companies are looking at or what they must look at to increase their digital tools to obtain data, shorten cycle times and in the end, increase delivery options and decrease delivery time.
