Air date: December 21, 2021 2 PM Eastern

While the pandemic exacerbated weaknesses in the global supply chain, new opportunities for the trucking industry to grow domestically have also been uncovered. McKinsey reported that trucking is expected to recover fastest of all transportation modes, especially with carriers making interesting investments. With recent stories on factories being built in the U.S. by international corporations like Samsung and Toyota, what is the benefit for carriers to investment in near-shoring or grow their domestic warehousing? Professor Margaret Kidd, Instructional Assistant Professor at the University of Houston, joins TT's Dan Ronan to discuss how supply chain issues are influencing the current domestic landscape of the trucking industry.
