Unleashed - How to Thrive as an Independent Professional

Jun 3, 2019

Our guest today is Scott Friesen, the SVP of Strategic Analytics at Echo Global Logistics, a company which serves as a broker that connects companies who want to ship something by truck to the trucking company that will give the best rate, a non-trivial exercise considering that there are 40,000 trucking companies in the United States.

In our discussion, Scott gives me an overview of the two major categories of trucking: less-than-truckload and full truck load.  We then explore some of the ways that analytics is changing the trucking industry, and the entry of new players including, you guessed it, Uber.
