What do truckers on the road do if they’re feeling sick, particularly in the age of the coronavirus? They often just suck it up.
But they also can head to an urgent care center at a truck stop, like the UrgentCare Travel centers found at Pilot and Flying J truckstops.
On this week’s Drilling Deep podcast, we talk to Mitch Strobin of UrgentCare Travel on what his urgent care centers at those truck stops are doing to cope with the demand for their services during the COVID-19 pandemic. The centers are the first line of medical treatment for a lot of the drivers keeping the country supplied with goods right now.
Also on Drilling Deep, host John Kingston looks at some recent numbers coming out of the diesel market. They point to lower prices, but more worrisome, they also point to lower demand, a sign of the weakening for trucking services.
