Pricing Dough

Did you get a chance to Google your companies’ name?

The only reason I asked was to reinforce the point I made last post that I think the trucking industry is falling behind the times. Frankly, too many of us are selling like we still live in Bedrock!

Modern shopping and old-fashioned trucking

The trucking industry is behind the times.

To be fair I will put that statement into context using my wife as the guinea pig. Today she eats up the online discounting and loyalty programs every retailer offers that didn’t exist 5 years ago. We save lots of dough and, more important for me, a trip to the local shopping mall. It’s amazing how much my family’s buying patterns have changed in such a short time. I can’t imagine that your house operates much different than mine does.
