Here's The Rundown
New Technology Being Adapted for the Trucking Industry
I read a lot of news - joys of a podcaster - and came across some very interesting articles about trucking companies using the Uber Model. Color me intrigued. Before I did the research, I was talking with some friends about the idea and it was a mixed bag on whether or not it would work. So I did some digging and actually the Uber Model could be a major game changer for local shipping. One company in particular, Cargomatic, has implemented this model and I'm really interested into seeing how they grow and expand.
Company of the Week
Prime Inc. is the Trucking Nation Company of the Week! They have adapted to the new technical age we have found ourselves in by integrating the latest technology available for their drivers. Prime Inc. also takes great pride in providing the best and safest equipment for their drivers. I'm a big fan of their band - The Brothers Roberson - and the song Why I Do This. Check out the video, it's amazing.
- Switch out one of your cups of coffee for tea. If you drink black coffee, then you should really give black tea a go. They come in tons of flavors and are really strong and bold. Probably very close to your personality :)
- Put lemons in your water to give it some flavor and to help detox your system. If you cut up a lemon and put into your water bottle, or water jug, you will be amazed at how great you feel. A glass of lemon water in the morning is a great start to the day. Lemon water is just a great way to jazz up boring old water and it has tons of health benefits. Read about them here - The Natural Wellness Benefits of Lemons.
- Get a good morning stretch in before you head out on the road. Stretching is a great way to wake you up in the morning and helps decrease muscle tension that can build up from sitting for hours on end. And it's perfect all you truckers that can be a tiny bit grumpy in the mornings.
- Slowly cut out fatty and fried foods from your diet. If you are finding it hard to transition to healthier food, don't worry it's not something that can be rushed. Start with eating healthier snack options, and then switch out fried foods for colorful wraps and salads. Creating a simple goal, like no fried food, is a perfect way to start.
