What the Truck?!?

WTT?!? The Celadon fallout one week in, and what’s on the radar right now [with video]

On this weekend’s What the Truck?!? we hit the ground running with the latest on Celadon exactly one week after FreightWaves first broke the news. We also give you the latest on what has been dubbed a “peaceful protest” at one of their subsidiaries in Mexico, Jaguar Transportation. We provide an update on the breaking news of a teenage shooter in Conyers, Georgia, as well as the potential progress in the developing situation with the trade war.

This week happens to host a perfect array of inaugural appearances. Craig Bliss joins us by phone for Five Good Minutes to tell us about the Facebook community he formed, Freight Brokers and Truck Drivers, which contains multitudes. Bliss tells us how such groups come together in times of crisis, such as the Celadon bankruptcy, and also how they function for members daily.

Michael Caney joins us for On the Radar to let us know how data is being used differently by a new generation of logistics executives. Data now connects more dots, brings together once-siloed branches, and provides more real-time data for quick decision-making. HR All-Star Astin Holcomb discusses the FreightWaves Job Board that materialized overnight this week during the Celadon bankruptcy announcement. Already there are more than 1,000 postings and growing.

We are also joined by Trucker Beetle Bailey for Now Trending in Supply Chain as he discusses the pleasures and pitfalls of rolling a truck and a camera with a dog on the road. Game Theorist Aaron Welch follows that up with the developing situation of what FreightWaves is doing to build connections between data and people and have fun doing it. He starts us off with our very first poll: Should dogs be allowed in the cab or not?

We follow all of these inaugural debuts with a segment of Comment Section Rodeo. We hear directly from this past week’s readers as it pertains to the Celadon story. As always, it’s an entertaining and wild ride. Hang on to your hats and plastic straws and get ready to hammer down!

Tune in to the video above, or run some errands and get jacked at the gym and listen to us anywhere podcasts are heard around the world right here! And at Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

And check out what our sponsor, DDC is up to.

  1. Your guests need to speak into the mike so to speak. Understandably people naturally tend to look directly at the person they are speaking to, which is counter-intuitive to talking on radio or a podcast. Your target audience is naturally truck drivers, who by default are driving their truck while listening to your Youtube via their Smartphone and by the nature of their business they may be in a truck that does not have the greatest acoustics. I am watching you on my 55″ 4k RCA Television. The sound is not optimum on this TV and as such I had difficulty hearing your first 2 guests because they were not speaking directly into the mike. You guys are naturally now native to speaking clearly into the microphone and I have no difficulty hearing you 2 guys.
    I am not trying to be critical of your show, as a disabled person a great deal of my time is spent surfing the net, and came across your podcast. At 60 naturally my hearing is not 100% from 25 yrs in construction. It crossed my mind that truckers may be live streaming to their smartphone, listening to your broadcast in an environment with a lot of background noises.
    I am not trying to troll, I think you guys are doing a terrific job in supporting the industry, and in particular I would think your site is helping to provide real-time breaking news for the Privateers in an Industry that is dominated with Big Corporations. I watched the entire episode of What the Truck, and I think you guys really do help emit a sense of family in this industry. I am hooked on listening to podcasts as I drive, Keep up the great work.

    1. Hey Brent, if you like podcasts we have this show in audio format and the audio in that final copy has some post treatment. (lower guest levels brought up, etc) More importantly we have a ton of shows so subscribe to FreightCasts for every FreightWaves podcast (or What The Truck?!? on your favorite podcast player)
