The Story Behind Hirschbach’s Graffiti-Style Branding

The Story Behind Hirschbach's Graffiti-Style BrandingThe Hirschbach tagline is "not your typical trucking company" and when you see one of their trucks driving down the road, you know exactly what I'm talking about. From their trucks to the company building, Hirschbach uses graffiti-style branding that draws attention in all the right ways but it's how they value their drivers that keeps that attention from wandering elsewhere.Established in 1935 with more than 85 years in the industry, they know a thing or two about running a recruiting department. Which is why I was stoked to sit down with marketing and social media manager Bianca Sanchez at the beautiful Gaylord Resort in Orlando, Florida. In this interview, we talk about Bianca's struggles and successes with driver recruiting along with using their website and social media content as a recruiting tool.Check out the Hirschbach websiteConnect with Bianca on LinkedinEverything is Logistics is hosted by Blythe Brumleve, founder of Digital Dispatch where we help freight companies get online and grow.

Locomation Explains How Lidar in Trucking Works

This is our 4th episode talking about all of the new technology in trucking--especially when it comes to autonomous vehicles. But what's the story behind what's powering the ability to use these trucks on highways without sacrificing safety? A key aspect to getting more autonomous vehicles on the road to help with supply chain challenges is a technology called Lidar--which I've known about for a while because of the possibilities and discoveries made while using Lidar in archeology. So I was really pumped to see it being used in trucking. Locomation’s COO Glynn Spangenberg was kind enough to join me live while at the Manifest conference and gave us a breakdown of how lidar systems are being used on their autonomous truck--which the company says can dramatically increase capacity, improve asset utilization, and lower costs for the supply chain overall. Links from the showFollow Glynn Spangenberg on LinkedinCheck out Locomation’s websiteLocomation Explainer VideoCheck out these shows next: How to save old trucks with Edison MotorsTargeting the Autonomous Middle Mile with GatikThe State of Autonomous Vehicles In Trucking...

How Rahmel Wattley Upgraded Truck N' Hustle's Content Game

There are few in trucking that create more high-quality and high-value content than Rahmel Wattley. He's the creator and host of Truck N' Hustle--a top-rated video podcast helping entrepreneurs get into the trucking industry and grow their operations. What I love about Rahmel is not only does he fly out to each of his interviews to conduct them in-person, with his own broadcasting equipment, but he covers all aspects of trucking in addition to semi-trucks, with every interview he conducts. So think last-mile vans, waste management, dump trucks, and more. In this episode, I'm chatting with Rahmel for the second time around to catch up on what he's learned from all the entrepreneurs he's met with since the last time we spoke--along with how he's continuing to grow his content team and raise the quality standards for content, not just for himself--but an entire industry. Listen to Rahmel's first appearance on the showFollow Truck N’ Hustle on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and TwitterVisit Truck N’ Hustle’s websiteListen to these shows next: Getting attention in 2022Website + Marketing Must-Haves for 2022The Most Important Thing You Can Add To Your Website TODAYHow to Make Customer Interviews Your Secret Marketing WeaponCreating Buyer Personas That Don’t SuckAnd the role of marketing operations that helps to tie ROI in with the creative experiments you want to run...
