So this study got a lot of folks talking last month: aboutsmall motor carriers and the often unacknowledged outsized role they perform in trucking, even as manypredict their extinction; about whether true freight visibility is possible if so much freight is outsourced; and whether this is yet another indication that more positive collaboration is needed between shippers and motor carriers in order to track and protect cargo more effectively.

I also got an interesting call from Joe Beacom, vice president and chief safety officer at Landstar System; one of the carriers mentioned prominently in the LaneAxisstudy, which concluded Landstar outsourced over 76% of its freight.
