Delivery

  • Same-day versus next-day delivery: Which is more sustainable?

    Quote (without link):

    "With same-day delivery, customers who place their orders within a specific time frame get their orders processed, packaged and delivered within 24 hours, either by the business’ delivery transport system or a third-party delivery solutions provider.

    "A delivery expectations survey carried out by PWC showed that 41% of consumers are willing to pay an extra charge to get a product during the same day. Yet the survey also noted that only 24% would pay for almost immediate (a one- or two-hour window) delivery. While this proves that the demand for instant delivery is set to grow exponentially, there are still drawbacks to the sustainable implementation of this method."

  • UPS mulling same-day delivery service with contracted drivers -- CEO


Ports

The ports are booming with imports.

If you're a trucker who can haul containers from the ports, make sure you have all of the paperwork and credentials you need.

 

8. Regarding drugs and smuggling:

Drugs

Never ever offer to haul drugs, no matter how much money you've been promised.


Smuggling

Never ever offer to haul humans like they are cattle, no matter how much money you've been offered.

 

9. Regarding technology, drones and autonomous vehicles:

I am absolutely opposed to driverless, self-driving and autonomous trucks, but keep you updated on this topic for your education.
