Food Shippers of America - Spring/Summer 2017 - 11

TODAY'S ENVIRONMENT IS CHANGING at a pace rarely seen before. Technology has
influenced our industry in ways we never imagined.

Will automated trucks transform our industry? Can we survive the increasing gaps
in talent if we are unable to coach, mentor and teach those coming into the industry
as well as those already here? Will the breathtaking insights offered by big data
change our businesses?
When Food Shippers of America met last month for its 62nd annual conference, the
key theme was reinforcing collaboration in changing environments. The logistics
industry is one of the best at overcoming highly diverse problems on a micro level,
but it struggles to develop sustainable solutions on a macro level. The industry has
been challenged for years with driver shortages, regulatory pressure and utilization
issues, which have led to higher cost and lower efficiency.
In the near future you will see more from Food Shippers of America to facilitate
substantive change within the industry. We hope to grow the access to key problem
solvers in the industry and provide value to our members.
In addition to our regular reports on the industry, retail and industry regulations,
in this issue you'll find a number of in-depth articles, including a feature on top
schools offering supply chain programs, the expansion of the Panama Canal and
the industry's capacity concerns, to name a few.
Check out "Cooperative Effort Provides Safe Havens for Drivers" (page 47) for a
real-world look at how a problem was identified and, through a collaborative effort,
a solution was provided. Beginning on page 93 you'll find profiles of several FSA
member companies.
We hope you enjoy this issue. As always, we welcome your input.
