Delivery robots vs. Hollywood; Yellow makes it official; and 3PLs get scrappy – WTT


On today’s episode of WHAT THE TRUCK?!? Dooner is talking about a delivery robot viral video straight out of Hollywood. We’ll take a look at what happened to Serve Robotics’ bots when they took to the streets of Los Angeles. 

Yellow officially announced that it’s shutting down. General Trucking Inc. CEO Larry Long has seen his fair share of shutdowns. We’re talking to him about what to do when your company dies, how to get a new trucking job and why his company may be the home for you.

Sope Creek founder Kevin Nolan is here to tell us to get over the freight recession and to start getting scrappy. We’ll learn how some 3PLs are winning in a depressed market. Nolan hits on employee shuffling, what’s investable and a bank for truckers. Then it’s ice bucket challenge time!

Makt-Trans LLC’s Justin Cornwell talks about the difference between being an agency owner and an agent. We’ll learn how both positions work and which may be best for you.

Plus, how to deliver a whale shark; getting run over by a combine; golf club-stealing bears; the water jug trick; and more.
