West Coast port agreement, wearable trucker tech and how to fix a logbook – WTT


On today’s episode of WHAT THE TRUCK?!? Dooner is talking to Flexport’s Nathan Strang about the agreement that saved peak season. As FreightWaves’ Greg Miller reported, “Late Wednesday night, the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA), representing the terminals, and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU), representing workers, announced a tentative agreement on a new six-year contract.” Is SoCal freight back on the menu and will the volumes return?

Wearable truck tech is advancing at a rapid rate but is it really any good? We’ll meet BlyncSync founder Steven Kastelic to learn all about his new solution for driver fatigue.

What’s the most annoying thing about ELDs? What should dispatchers know about them and how do you fix a wonky logbook? Wattsmen Diesel House’s Sam Watts is here to get us tuned up.

Are business and sports all about being a copycat? FreightVana’s Shannon Breen drops by to talk about the business of imitation. We’ll also learn how power-only works and how to get the most out of a conference.

Plus, Biden says the U.S. plans to make a railroad from the Pacific to the Indian Ocean; going to your formal in a Kenworth; team trucking domestic disputes; The Little Freightmaid; and progress on 95 in Philly.
