Why the trucking industry is being remade here — and it's not autonomous vehicles
from Crain's Chicago Business
When Uber decided to get into freight, all roads led to Chicago. It started by hiring Bill Driegert, formerly chief innovation officer at Coyote Logistics, to head the company's effort to revolutionize trucking the way it has the taxi business. Uber added talent from a Chicago-based startup, 4Front. Then it built the majority of its national Uber Freight operations team here. And when Uber expanded its truck-booking app beyond a test market this month, Chicago was among the handful of cities to be included.
