It’s time for a vacation.
This is the one time of the year where I truly and completely disconnect: no smartphone, no laptop, no television (except to watch all the movies I’ve missed this past year.)
So, unless a nuclear war breaks out or an asteroid strikes the Earth, I’ll be back on August 23.
It was a relatively quiet week for supply chain and logistics news, but here are the items that caught my attention.
- Tesla developing self-driving tech for semi-truck, wants to test in Nevada (Reuters)
- FMCSA formally withdraws sleep apnea screening rule (CCJ)
- Office Depot introduces same‑day delivery in three markets (Internet Retailer)
- The Best Place for a New Warehouse? An Old Mall (WSJ – sub. req’d)
- Oracle Introduces Major Innovations to Supply Chain Management Cloud
- UPS Gives Merchants Greater Control To Manage Returns
- States Alter Trucking Schedules to Dodge Eclipse (Transport Topics)
- C-TPAT reauthorization legislation is introduced (Logistics Management)
- U.S. Coast Guard Prints Spare Parts at Sea (The Maritime Executive)
And with that, have a happy weekend!
