Emerging Trends in Transportation and Logistics With Tom Ptacek

Big data in transportation and logistics, tort reform, insurance rates, autonomous vehicles, and avoiding lawsuits, are just some of the topics discussed in this week’s episode.

James welcomes friend and Lockton VP, Tom Ptacek, and Tom brings his 40 years of experience in the insurance industry to discuss a plethora of topics within the transportation and logistics space.

They discuss the driver shortage issue, and what trucking companies can do to help attract top talent. How companies should view big data, and what kind of trends are emerging in this space, plus how the ‘little’ guys can take advantage of the data that top companies are gathering.

They also talk about how the pandemic has affected the supply chain, and why we’re seeing a sudden shortage in shipping containers.
