If all-new Shipping Wars episodes taught us anything it’s that it’s possible to successfully transport the world’s largest water pipe, a robotic animal rock band and a half dozen tornado shelters. Dilapidated horse barn? Not so much. Get the Shipping Wars recap here:

I am sorry to report that my dog was hurt during transport, and Tina, very surprisingly to me, has been 100% unwilling to even discuss the issue with me on the phone. I was stunned by her excellent reviews and didn't hesitate to book her to transport my dog across country. However my dog suffered pressure ulcers from the crate and lost 4 lbs during transport. Despite being in touch once daily with Tina throughout the transport, I was not informed of any of this when it occurred. Chillingly, when she arrived, she told me that these sores had been started when she picked the dog up, which is not true. When I emailed her with these concerns after delivery, she asked for vet documentation of all of this which I provided only hours later. However at this point I have received only minimal response from her, no acknowledgement or empathy for the problem, and being told that that I am to blame because my dog was underweight (58 lbs at time of pick up, now 54) when she was picked up – Tina went as far as to tell me ‘I can’t take care of my dog and I should give her away’ which I feel is first of all completely untrue, unrelated to the issue at hand, and frankly a cruel and unnecessary response to a problem reported by a customer. The fact that my dog was having problems gaining weight at home (for which I took her to the vet and was addressing actively) does not account for pressure ulcers or the fact that she lost so much weight during transport over only a few days. I am growing increasingly concerned that not only when this vendor encounters a problem, she will not report to the owner, but even worse, when you report concerns, she will refuse to talk to you about it in a civil manner. Several days ago, I started by asking her to discuss this privately between us to avoid posting unfavorable reviews given her previously stellar reputation, but given the state of this situation I am considering even pursuing follow up with the ASPCA and further legal charges to avoid this happening to others. I have provided all documentation to uship.com who I hope will mediate a solution to this sad situation. At this point my dog has developed cellulitis in these ulcers and is on oral antibiotics, though she was not taken to a veterinarian and I was not notified of it when it developed thus a delay in diagnosis and treatment of cellulitis. A very unexpected and sad outcome.

The sharing economy has given us the ability to connect with one another to make our lives a little easier, affordable, and more convenient.
With platforms like +Uber   +Lyft and +uShip  ,transportation is leading the way in the sharing economy. What’s the next big market ripe for disruption in this “new” economy we are all living in?

+Shipping Wars on A&E Season 7 premiered with several unanswered questions:  Was Jennifer aka Texas Cowgirl ready for prime time?  Was Dusty rusty after a shipping hiatus?  And doesn’t expecting the unexpected make the unexpected the expected?
#shippingwars  
In the recap of the Season 7 premiere of Shipping Wars Jennifer has to call in help from an unlikely source while Dusty turns a hefty profit.

Because of a number of different factors, truck drivers in America’s Dairyland are victims to relatively high diesel prices, greater potential for cargo theft and some of the worst wages in the entire country. 
#trucking   #wisconsin  
Stagnant wages, moderately high fuel prices, harsh weather conditions and a higher cargo theft may have Wisconsin truckers currently singing the blues.

It’s an overused cliche to say technology is changing our everyday lives, but in the trucking industry, new innovations may dramatically alter the industry – and for the better.

Driverless trucks and drones are getting the lion’s share of attention in the transportation market, and rightfully so. The prototype technology could dramatically impact how products and services are delivered to businesses and consumers alike. Yet, there are a plethora of developments on the technology front that don’t receive the same attention, and their lasting effect could be equally as dramatic, if not more so.

I don't like the idea of driver less semi s but auto pilot on the interstate would be nice

Whether you’re hauling a load from coast to coast or simply making a regional delivery, proper nourishment is a necessity on the road. Regardless of the circumstance, an empty stomach deserves high-quality eats. In no particular order, here are 10 of the best highway eateries the country has to offer:

Surveys show that American households spend an extra $1,100 each year on goods to cover the cost of filling up semi trucks! With a growing environmentally conscious public landscape, what does the future hold for the transportation industry? 
#environmentallyfriendly   #truckingnews  
Nearly three-quarters of Americans support regulations that would require manufacturers to improve semi truck fuel economy to lower fuel costs in general.

Southern California is know for its high density of traffic and air pollution, but a recent road design project is hoping to drastically reduce – if not completely eliminate – the smog problem in the area. Known as the “e-highway”, Siemens and South Coast Air Quality Management District to install are building an electric-powered highway system connected both ports to downtown Los Angeles.
