efficient. Te really good carriers are going to respond to that.” To compete, carriers may have to offer a
broader set of solutions to their customers. “Because the way that retailers were shipping 10 years ago may not be the way that they are going to be shipping now or 5 years from now,” Williams says. Instead, he urges carriers to think beyond
the possibility of competition with Amazon. “I think the thing to be thinking about if I’m a transportation executive is the way the shopper is buying, giving them power will affect how things will ship in some way, shape or form. And carriers need to be able to create a broad enough portfolio of services or connect with the right companies that make them a part of that network.” Te bottom line is it’s “too early to tell,” Voss
says. “We’ll just have to see how it all pans out.” While it may be too early to forecast the

To be “winners” in our business, carriers can’t just sit around waiting to be the lowest rate. Tey will
need to be the innovating, thought leaders that are willing to develop and use new technology or logistics models in partnerships with their shippers. Its proven that profitability can come with progressive thinking and innovation. Nebraska, with our strong base of interstate truck carriers, combined with our central geographic/population-centered location in the middle of everywhere — could be an excellent place for new projects like Amazon to look at for future growth.
