Preparing For The Trucking Industry’s Road To Success
Trucking’s role in keeping goods, materials and the economy rolling during the global pandemic has been nothing short of phenomenal and will certainly play a role in re-establishing “normal” supply lines depleted by hoarding households and profiteering resellers. Hopefully, everyone in the trucking industry will soon be putting these challenging times in the rear-view mirror and some of America’s most essential workers will soon be able to finally take a break.
Unfortunately, the damage is still being assessed and the carnage it’s causing in the industry is not likely to abate soon. According to Ron Sterk, in Food Business News, for all modes, logistics has been at the center of disruption. Sterk explains that sharply reduced tonnage and redirection of shipping routes were just two of the most prominent ways transportation was disrupted while moving essential food and other items during the pandemic’s peak. Supply chain gears began to grind as lockdowns took hold in April. Ocean freight and rail shipments tumbled during the pandemic, notes Sterk, while truck tonnage initially surged and then plummeted.

Electric trucks evolving rapidly, charging up drive to diesel alternatives
We’re entering August, and beyond the obvious headlines, the wheels of commerce and technical innovation in trucking still seem to be turning, in spite of it all. Although the trucking industry is surrounded with revolutionary technology, like any commercial, industrial sector, fundamental change only comes in an evolutionary way. But in the case of electric propulsion things seem to be speeding up a bit.
The day a fish stepped out of the water
Diesels have powered commercial trucks ever since automobiles stepped out of the primordial swamp of the industrial revolution. For most of its history, there were few modes of propulsion that could truly compete with diesels on all fronts even now – especially the relative energy density of the fuel and reliability of the overall platform in commercial application.
Science doesn’t exactly know when that first fish “walked” out of the water but once it did, eventually it got behind the wheel of an electric Class 8 semi and the rest as they say is history. Electro-motive power’s evolution has been a little faster and there is mounting evidence that diesel’s dominance at the top of the propulsion food change is about to be challenged by a powerful and technically evolved rival.
