Reinventing the Truck:
Will New Technologies Reshape the Truck and Shipping?

The next 20 years will bring major change across the transportation and energy sectors, and the commercial truck is at the heart of that change. Powertrain systems will be greatly altered to meet new, stringent regulations. The decades-long dominance of diesel engines is being challenged by electric vehicle technology from companies such as Tesla and Nikola, as well as traditional truck OEMs. Autonomous vehicle technology is triggering a rethinking of freight network models that shippers and carriers have relied on since the 1920s. Drawing on its deep expertise across multiple industries, IHS Markit has released a multi-client study on the impact of new truck design and technology on future logistics and energy networks. What benefits and what challenges might shippers face as a result of the heavy-duty truck’s reinvention? This panel will review IHS Markit’s findings and discuss the stakes for shippers in potential outcomes.

JOC Innovation Jam I:
What Problems Can Technology Really Solve?

Can the innovative use of logistics technology really solve actual problems shippers face moving freight in North America? The JOC editorial team set out to answer that question by reaching out to shippers, asking about their most severe challenges in the North American supply chain, and inviting technology providers to propose how they would solve them. Technology providers will face a panel of shipper judges in the first of a two-part “innovation jam” to discuss proposed solutions selected by shippers before the conference. Attendees will hear about a cross-section of the most promising logistics technology, and the judging panel will vote on the solution that most convincingly addresses the pain point it addresses, with the winner announced at the end of the jam.

Bridging the Shipper-Carrier Divide Through Collaboration

In an extended period of high freight demand and tight capacity, cooperation or collaboration between shippers and carriers is critical, but it isn’t easy. There are high barriers to real collaboration between enterprises accustomed to more transactional relationships and tight oversight of financial and customer data. Yet all of the challenges outlined and discussed at JOC Inland show the need for deeper partnerships if shippers want to control or even reduce logistics costs. How do we effectively build bridges and then actually use them? And how do we keep them functioning as economic indicators fluctuate and markets swing? We’ll discuss all of that and more on this panel, including shippers’ views of the top challenges of 2019.

 STATEMENT OF JOC CONFERENCE EDITORIAL POLICY:All JOC conference programs are developed independently by the JOC editorial team based on input from a wide variety of industry experts and the editors' own industry knowledge, contacts and experience. The editorial team determines session topics and extends all speaker invitations based entirely on the goal of providing highly relevant content for conference attendees. Certain sponsors may give welcoming remarks or introduce certain sessions, but if a sponsor appears as a bona-fide speaker it will be because of an editorial invitation, not as a benefit of sponsorship. Sponsorship benefits do not include speaking on a program.
