Podcast Episode: 0085
From cars to shoes, nearly everything you use in your daily life is delivered via a truck. So, why is it so important that we keep this transportation line moving and what is in store for this industry in the future? AutoLooks takes a look at the mother truckers who bring you your products and what the future has in store for them.
Whether you agree or disagree with their protest, you still have to hand it to truckers about their bravery in every day life. Each and every day, transports deliver billions of goods around the globe and without them our society today could not survive. Transports not only delivery day to day goods, but also emergency and healthcare products and they do this over the course of long hours and poor conditions. While you sit and read this, a trucker is driving through a snowstorm on an icy highway, to ensure you can wake up and get that first cup of coffee.
Over the past decade this industry has been hit harder than most others when it comes to recruitment. With less people wanting to drive and a massive increase in products being shipped, the trucking industry is in peril. But how can we help this industry out along with maintaining our strict delivery schedule. The answer to that may be in technology.
With the rise in autonomous driving technology, the future of transportation may be handle the influx of new orders. Autonomous pods and satellite controlled trucks could be the winning grace for the future of transportation networks around the world. But how will that impact the jobs of today. That is something only time will tell us.
Today convoys of truckers have been protesting mandates and trying to bring their freedom for the open road back. But with governments holding their ground, the future of autonomous trucking may be sooner than we thought.
For today we can still thank a "Mother Trucker" for bringing us the products we require and hope that the issues of today can be resolved for the better of both the industry and its operators.
Thank you Mother Truckers for all that you do for us!
