PRESENT AND FUTURE GOODS PRODUCTION, LOGISTICS, AND MOTOR CARRIER OPERATIONS, KEYNOTE ADDRESS

This keynote address centers on the fundamental theme of change; the ability of a business to anticipate and adapt to change determines its success. The motor carrier industry must be proactive, not reactionary, in responding to changing demographics and economies, which, in turn, elicit different customer requirements and needs. Just as the automobile industry shifted from thinking "quality is expensive" to "increased quality will reduce costs and reduce waste", the needed paradigm shift for the motor carrier industry will involve a change from "reducing total time in transit is expensive" to "reducing total time in transit reduces cost".
