Song Inspiration: “Wasted Time” by Skid Row, 1991
Waste. We all know what that is. Normally, when we encounter a situation where waste has occurred, we get annoyed and think, “well, that was a waste”. Maybe the leftovers were never eaten, or maybe we spent $20 on lotto tickets without winning anything. These are typical examples of waste that immediately come to mind. However, warehouse waste comes in many shapes and sizes. It is a destructive little monster that hides in plain sight and surreptitiously rears its ugly head in the company’s bottom line.

Song Inspiration: "Take It To The Limit" Eagles 1975
You know I've always been a dreamer, and it's so hard to change, but the dreams I've seen lately keep on turning out and burning out and turning out the same. So put me on a highway and show me a sign and take it to the limit one more time.

When much of your job is navigating the nation's highways from a big rig, maintaining health on the road can be a real challenge. The nearly 3.5 million drivers on the road are critical to keeping our economy running smoothly and efficiently. Many face unique challenges related to truck drivers' health, leaving them feeling like they are running on empty. Running on, running blind. Running on, running into the sun, but I'm running behind.
