Trucking markets, robot trucks and K-9 heroes – WTT

On today’s episode of WHAT THE TRUCK?!? Dooner is catching up with Kodiak Robotics’ brand new COO fresh from USA Truck, James Reed. We’ll find out where he thinks autonomy is headed and why he’s along for the ride.

Three weeks into ‘23 and we’re starting to get a better picture of how long the freight slump will last. We’ll dive deep into the macro conditions driving freight with Reliance Partners CFO/CRO Thom Albrecht.

FreightWaves’ Donny Gilbert fires up the SONAR supercomputer and crunches rates, rejections and volumes in the dry van and reefer markets. 

Do you got that dog in you? Project K-9 Hero does. It protects those who protect us by giving retired police and military dogs life after service. CEO and founder Jason Johnson, as well as furry companions, join the show to talk about the upcoming fundraiser Performers for Paws. 

Plus, why truckers like to truck; a Tesla Semi breaks down again; getting out of a rut; and more.
