If ever there was a mouth-watering freight headline, it is this one. FreightWaves reports from its second annual Transparency conference, where this year XPO Logistics chief executive Brad Jacobs (pictured above) was the keynote speaker. While much of his talk centred around XPO’s acquisition strategy – or current lack thereof – it also featured some interesting predictions on how technology would change logistics: “Robots, many of which will operate collaboratively in warehouses and distribution centres alongside humans, will be increasingly welcomed by employees who will be freed up from handling boring and repetitive tasks. I haven’t met a warehouse worker who doesn’t love robots,” he said.
