Guest: Dr. Rodney Thomas, associate professor, Department of Supply Chain Management, University of Arkansas, Sam M. Walton College of Business

The benefits of weigh station bypass for truckers is undeniable – both drivers and fleets save time and money by not having to wait in lines at weigh stations and can just drive on by. Now there is new research that shows another big benefit.

In this episode of the “Eyes on the Road” podcast, presented by PrePass, host Evan Lockridge talks with Dr. Rodney Thomas, associate professor at the University of Arkansas Department of Supply Chain management. Dr. Thomas spent nearly 10 years working for IBM, Lowe’s and Michelin in a variety of sourcing, inventory management and logistics planning roles before returning to academia. They discuss research his team conducted with logistics professionals and the results that could help truckers get more business, even if their rates are higher than competitors.
