The Daily Dash: Teamsters push for delay in California meal and rest break lawsuit

The Daily Dash is a quick look at what is happening in the freight ecosystem. In today’s edition, the Teamsters see a Joe Biden election victory as a pathway to ending California’s meal and rest-break rules. Plus, Alibaba is expanding its third-party logistics footprint and it has repercussions for Amazon, and Daimler Trucks launches a new division dedicated to connectivity.

Not so fast

The Teamsters have asked a federal court to delay oral arguments over whether California can dictate work rules for commercial trucks under the state’s meal and rest-break laws.

John Gallagher has details on why the delay is being sought: Biden win prompts delay request in California rest-break lawsuit

Budding competition?

Global e-commerce giant Alibaba (NYSE: BABA) has added logistics services for importers and exporters in Japan, providing competition in the global 3PL landscape.

Let’s get together

As connectivity becomes the norm in commercial trucking, Daimler Trucks is looking to centralize the development of this process under a single touch point.

COVID-19’s impact on the food supply chain

COVID-19 completely upended the supply chain, but few segments felt the disruption more than the food and beverage supply chain. And the disruption may only be getting started.

Brian Straight explains why COVID-19 is still reshaping the supply chain: The impact of COVID-19 on the food and beverage supply chain could be long lasting
