The 2018 Top 100 For-Hire Carrier rankings, released July 16, illustrate just how intensely for-hire carriers are embracing technology and innovation in a competitive marketplace.

Our July 18 LiveOnWeb program, “Reimagining Trucking,” explored that topic with a focus on automation, shipment visibility and business intelligence. Watch the replay above.


Our guests for the program were:

  • Hayden Cardiff (left), founder and CEO of Idelic, a Pittsburgh-area company that provides comprehensive enterprise solutions for compliance, safety and risk management. He had been a commercialization and investment consultant for Pitt Ohio. He also co-founded and was COO of Hyliion.
  • Brittain Ladd (middle), a Dallas-based consultant who works with companies to solve highly complex business and operational problems. He has consulted for Amazon, Walmart, Kroger and Dell and previously worked as a strategy and omnichannel supply chain consultant for Deloitte. (Watch Ladd's full interview here.)
