[vimeo-autoplay video-id=”457042596″]

On today’s episode, Dooner and The Dude are talking to J.B. Hunt’s Shelley Simpson about advancing opportunities for women in supply chain, their all-electric truck pilot program with Walmart, and 9/11. Alan Adler breaks down the Hindenburg Research report on Nikola Motor Co.; how valid is the short seller’s scathing screed? And how one owner-operator is using mackonomics in his quest for 10+ mpg.

Plus, SONAR-powered data and freight flows, and news regarding the strong pricing power for carriers carrying on, more drug busts at the border, Tesla’s Battery Day, Peloton’s big gains, wind toppling trucks, and the return of the NFL.

They’re joined by special guests Shelley Simpson, EVP, chief commercial officer, president, highway services at J.B. Hunt Transport Inc; Jamie Hagen, owner-operator, Hell Bent Xpress LLC.; and Alan Adler, Detroit bureau chief, FreightWaves.
