A host of electronic tools are rapidly entering the supply chain, both in customer operations and transportation.

The session will discuss changes to finances, productivity, land use, driver hiring and regulations stemming from these changes. Most people shy away from talking about such change because of its uncertainty and threats to the status quo. This presentation will make the strong case that the changes are sufficiently important and probable to justify, if not require, contemporary attention.

These are the stakes over the next 15 years:
