In a spine-chilling episode I discuss the recent spate of buyouts in the trucking industry. One big buys a little and so on. Heartland bought Millis and then Smith Transport. Now PAM is buying Metropolitan and possibly changing the name to Met Express. What? Also, Samsara is in the news with a new and exciting product that is sure to make truck driving even worse than it is already. As if there weren’t enough ways to watch you they have come up with another way that is more terrible than what they already do to us. Also, a reason we are not on Mars.
