On today’s episode, Dooner and The Dude talk about the rise of warehouse automation and why it’s a leading space for innovation and how BCB Transport is helping drivers in the time of COVID. Also, a trucker shares a story of finding lost money at a rest stop, and we have an orchestral #PlayItForward.

Plus, news on Amazon setting a new record for shipping costs, prosecutors pushing for prison time for a former Uber exec, and Swissport’s PPP problem.

They’re joined by special guests Vince Martinelli, head of product and marketing at RightHand Robotics; Rick Larkin, president at BCB Transport; Jake Semba, consulting summer analyst, CarrierDirect; and trucker Sharla Grimm.
