Uber spins off Uber Freight as separate business unit. The Toys ‘R’ Us bankruptcy leaves retailers anxious to pick up the slack for the holiday shipping season. Maersk and IBM take their blockchain platform live as they seek additional partners. The shipbreaking industry where workers die on the shores of Bangladesh. JP and Chad discuss all this and more on this week’s episode.
First, the dynamic freight duo compare Bell’s Two-Hearted (shocker!) versus Drivin and Cryin Straight to Hell IPA.
Then, they cover the headlines of the week from Uber to toys to blockchain to Bangladesh.
And after all that goodness, they tap into a competitive round of Big Deal, Little Deal?
Then we look back to the McLeod CFO conference as JP and Zach talk to McLeod Manager of Product Development Robert Brothers about Capacity Creator, a new machine learning tool to automate brokers’ workflows.
