Guest: Rick Mihelic, director of future technologies studies, North American Council for Freight Efficiency

A new report from the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) says the future of long-haul trucking may lie with increased regional operations which could result in big changes for both drivers and fleets in a number of different ways.

Listen to this latest episode of the “Eyes on the Road” podcast, presented by PrePass. Host Evan Lockridge talks with the study’s author Rick Mihelic, director of future technologies studies at NACFE. They discuss how this could lead to increased driver retention and more alternative fuel use. The two also talk about how more regional operations could affect truck safety plus how increasing e-commerce is one of the biggest factors fueling this overall trend.
