Supply Chain News Makers Video Series:

Author Steve Viscelli on the Life of a US Truck Driver


 

 

April 24, 2017

 

Author Steve Viscelli of the University of Pennsylvania spent six months as a over-the-road truck driver as part of his research for his new book, titled The Big Rig: Trucking and the Decline of the American Dream, which chroncles the very tough life of most US drivers.

 

It should be no surprise that the US has a  truck driver shortage, Viscelli says - it's a lousy job. And the promise of owning your own business as a contract driver is largely a fraud, Viscelli says.

 

Watch SCDigest editor Dan Gilmore discuss all this and more with Viscelli, in a clip excerpted from our Supply Chain Video News broadcast released each week in partnership with CSCMP.

 

Please view this fast-paced and very interesting video discussion below.
