CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Bloodhound makes its first appearance at the 2016 ALK Transportation Technology Summit on May 23-24, 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Hosted by ALK Technologies, the Transportation Technology Summit brings together thought leaders from the transportation industry in a unique forum that includes a focus on education, industry developments and innovative products and solutions.
Blue Bloodhound will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of various workforce models, including why a traditional hiring model is not always the most efficient solution for motor carriers or drivers. Blue Bloodhound will also share the benefits of its new, online marketplace that is more efficient, reduces acquisition costs, and increases motor carrier and driver satisfaction levels.
Launched in late 2015, Blue Bloodhound is revolutionizing the trucking industry through its new, online marketplace by connecting qualified truck drivers in need of extra work with motor carriers posting immediate, pay-by-the-run local and long-haul jobs throughout the United States.
"As a first time speaker at ALK, we are excited about the opportunity to meet with other industry leaders regarding the latest challenges and trends," said Todd Warner, Chief Operating Officer of Blue Bloodhound. "Having a discussion about the challenges facing transportation as it relates to technology is really important, because many of our industry's inefficiencies can be eliminated by application of new technologies. Blue Bloodhound is an example of that innovation, providing a more balanced and efficient workforce solution through its technology. We're excited to join the conversation."
Todd Warner, Chief Operating Officer at Blue Bloodhound, presents at 1:30-2:00 p.m. on May 24, 2016. With over 15 years of transportation experience, and 30 years in the staffing industry, Todd provides a unique perspective on how to run an efficient business operation within a challenging and heavily regulated industry.
