This Week in Logistics News (March 18-22, 2019)

I arrived at Penn Station in Newark, NJ yesterday for a client meeting. My initial thought was to grab an Uber to my hotel, but since there were already a line of taxis parked outside, I decided to hop in one.

After telling the driver where I was heading, he told me, “It’s cash only, no credit card.”

“None of these cabs take credit card?” I asked him. “None,” he said.

I hopped out of the cab, and again I thought about requesting an Uber, but then I decided to do something crazy, almost unheard of these days: I walked. In the light rain. One mile to the hotel.

Since I’m on borrowed time this morning, I’ll provide my commentary next week.

Have a happy weekend!
