Our guest on this week's episode is Dr. Stefan Heck, CEO and founder of Nauto, a technology company that improves safety for fleet drivers. June is National Safety Month. Drivers on our nation’s roads have less than two seconds to react to most situations that can result in an accident, injury, or even death. But there are technologies available that incorporate artificial intelligence to help assure safety on our roadways.  Our guest shares how these new technologies alert commercial drivers to unsafe conditions before they happen.

We have seen the rise of manufacturing here in the U.S. as many companies are bringing their production back from Asia to North America.  New research this week reveals how manufacturers are feeling about the current conditions for reshoring.

The newest DC Measures study is out. Produced by WERC in conjunction with DC Velocity, the research tracks the latest developments in distribution strategies and operational metrics. This allows companies to benchmark the performance of their warehouses as well as to track industry trends.

DC Velocity's sister publication CSCMP's Supply Chain Quarterly offers a podcast series called Supply Chain in the Fast Lane.  It is co-produced with the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals.  A new eight-part series on Transportation Tech has launched.
