So, is it any wonder that the technology and operations that are at work in the industry are the brainchildren of some of the best tech leaders out there? I got one of these tech leaders to sit down for a friendly-but-insightful talks – meet Kirk Franzen, the CTO at Cargo Chief, a company that works in the freight market, using tech to reduce headaches that stem from logistics.
