Dogs of freight, inside Stord and how to become a trucker

Pat Roche

On today’s episode Dooner and The Dude are sharing dogs of freight for a good cause. NEXT Trucking’s head of communications, Mike Bush, gets our tails wagging over its partnership with Operation Roger. For every dog pic submitted, NEXT will donate $5 to the cause. What’s Op Roger do? It returns lost pets to their owners by using a network of truckers.

Stord has some of the best marketing in the business. Its vice president of marketing, Mario Paganini, talks about his approach to branding and why the memelords will inherit the earth. 

FreightWaves’ editorial director, Rachel Premack, says truckers are peeved at the Supreme Court. We’ll find out why. 

Back The Truck Up’s SuperTrucker Justin Martin takes us inside the cab as we hit on trucking issues, including a suspended trucker; whether pee bottles are a myth; bad strap work; how to become a trucker in ‘22; and canceled AI rappers.
