April showers bring May flowers.
It’s been pouring since last night, and this morning a few white snowflakes have mixed in, and the blue and yellow flowers in our front yard, freshly planted by my wife, have been eaten by rabbits.
It’s one of those days where you just want to finish your coffee in the shadow of your kitchen and then climb back into bed, and hope to fall asleep, again listening to the rain on the roof and gutters, and the flowers and the rabbits and the white snowflakes of spring.
Here’s the supply chain and logistics news that caught my attention this week:
- Ship Logjam at California Ports Is Easing After March Import Deluge (WSJ – sub. req’d)
- Tesla self-driving truck rival TuSimple raises $1 billion in IPO valuing it at $8.5 billion (MarketWatch)
- Walmart helps push Cruise’s latest investment round to $2.75B (TechCrunch)
- UPS stretches ‘afternoon’ to midnight with return to delivery guarantees (The Loadstar)
- March US Class 8 Sales Jump 33.7% (Transport Topics)
- FourKites Announces Industry-first Tracking Quality Guarantee
- Americans Have Too Much Toilet Paper. Finally, Sales Slow. (WSJ – sub. req’d)
It’s one of those days, so I’ll save my commentary for another day.
Have a happy weekend!
