To many people, the world of trucking appears very opaque. People who seek to join the industry often do not know where to start. Even for those who have broken in, many have questions about best practices.
The Purpose of the Podcast
The folks over at Freight Guru have decided to take it upon themselves to help educate people on the ins and outs of the trucking industry. To do this, the founder and CEO of The Freight Guru, and the freight guru himself, Luis Lopez, has started the Freight Guru Podcast.
Why this podcast is great for Millenials not looking for four years in College
The modern educational system has been designed to make a four-year degree appear necessary. While there are many jobs for which having a four-year degree is very useful and sometimes required, starting in trucking is not one of them. That is not to say it will be easy or that you do not need to learn anything. What it means is the learning you will be doing is through experience and trial and error. That was the only way to do it before this podcast. The Freight Guru podcast walks you through what you need to know to get started and be successful in the industry.
If you’re already in transportation Luis Lopez is here to be your coach and it’s FREE!
Anyone in the trucking industry knows that you never stop learning about the industry. With the constantly shifting regulatory landscape and the evolving needs of customers, if you are not learning, you are falling behind. On top of that, it is always good to incorporate multiple perspectives and learn from veterans of the industry. Luis is an industry veteran, and his podcasts are a great way to keep up with the industry.
There are currently six podcast episodes available. Episode one covers the state of the spot market in Q1 of 2021, episode two goes over how to start a trucking company as a fleet manager, and so on.
About the Freight Guru
Luis Lopez is a visionary and trucking industry veteran. Born and raised in Miami, he dropped out of college to pursue his entrepreneurial spirit. Through hard work and sacrifice, he has spent the last 14 years climbing to the top of the trucking world and earning the moniker, The Freight Guru.
Today Luis Lopez is the chairman of Go Hub Holding Group and the CEO of Freight Hub Group, which was ranked by INC 5000 Magazine as one of the fastest-growing companies in the US. On top of this, he has also developed a world-class TMS known as TruckHub.
Why the Podcast
Luis Lopez remembers that when he was starting, there were very few resources available to him. He sought to share resources with the broader community. After some research, he determined that the best way to convey this was via a podcast.
