The LTL market is healthy, according to John Hansen, director of LTL operations at R2 Logistics.

“While overall tonnage may slow slightly as capacity still struggles to keep up with demand, LTL carriers continue to invest in expanding their number of terminals and transshipments across the country,” Hansen said. “LTL isn’t slowing down anytime soon and preparations are underway to welcome the business.”

R2 Logistics is a 3PL provider that has been providing supply chain management services to shippers of all sizes for nearly 15 years. R2 Logistics specializes in Managed Transportation, Full Truck Load, LTL, Expedited, Air Freight, Intermodal, Ocean, and Flatbed/Specialized. Hansen said that with the R2 Logistics transportation management system, customers can assess shipments and receive real-time visibility into their supply chain networks.

A industry report said the LTL industry is benefiting from the growth of the e-commerce industry, “reflecting increases in consumer spending, business investment, foreign trade and domestic manufacturing.” And the LTL market is expected to grow at a pace compound annual growth rate of 2% between 2021 and 2026.

“Ultimately, I’m bullish on the LTL market in general. As a society, we’ve become very accustomed to ordering the right amount of product at the right time and expect logistics markets to ‘work’,” said Frank Dreischarf, vice president of supply chain solutions. procurement at R2 Logistics. “I consider this the ‘Amazon effect’. We are seeing growth in LTL volumes in general with higher customer expectations for excellent service, follow-up and responsiveness. »

R2 Logistics is also committed to providing its LTL customers with the latest technologies. Gone are the days of using spreadsheets to track and manage transportation expenses. With the right technology, shippers of all sizes can rate shipments and gain visibility into their logistics network, giving small and medium-sized businesses a competitive advantage over their larger counterparts who dominate the LTL industry.

“Keeping up to date with emerging technology is imperative in today’s fast-paced transportation industry. Customers want and deserve full visibility into their shipments, documents and invoices when needed,” Hansen said. “The leading growing LTL carriers are those investing in new technologies to reduce costs, optimize capacity and expand their network. As a result, LTL companies that implement the technology see significant advantages over their non-tech counterparts. »

Hansen said customers using R2’s TMS for LTL have the ability to get quotes or book shipments online, see all available carrier options, and choose price, transit time, and level. services that best suit their needs. They have full visibility into real-time track and trace with the click of a button, and when shipments are delivered, they have the ability to view all necessary documents, from weight certificates to invoices. Clients can also access KPI reports to determine exactly how much they spend and where they are spent.

“Our TMS system was designed for small and medium shippers,” Dreischarf said. “The technology adoption rate for shippers with annual spend of less than $25 million is less than 10%. This means that there are a huge number of companies operating in the United States that use the best technology from the 1980s – a huge problem that is often overlooked.

According to Dreischarf, for a long time LTL networks specifically supported large shippers, but feasted on small shippers who didn’t know enough about the space or weren’t big enough to negotiate favorable deals. R2’s LTL service is designed specifically to serve this niche for small and medium shippers – bringing expertise in operations, sourcing, data and analytics into a single platform that offers shippers the same benefits as a great shipper.

“The reality is that the freight line on a company’s income statement is one of the most significant expenses it has to manage and many companies are not equipped or cannot afford a transport team to support their business. This is where our TMS system and LTL offerings come in,” he said.

Hansen said that to ensure competitive pricing for small and medium-sized customers, R2 leverages its total LTL volumes across its network of more than 30 carriers.

“We believe that, regardless of size, everyone deserves the same level of attention and customer service every day,” Hansen said. “And with our track record, our commitment to adding value to our customers’ supply chain and our niche as a top service provider, we find that once we become part of the network of a customer, we retain that customer for the long term.”

R2 prides itself on its ability to onboard customers into its TMS in just about two weeks, according to Dreischarf, who said the system supports both DIY customers and do-it-yourselfers.

“In addition, we have a team of logistics professionals and analysts who are on top of all of our customers and make sure our DIY customers get the most out of the system and when they see a potential problem, contact immediately the client with alternatives,” he said.

According to Dreischarf, R2’s long-term goals are simple – to be the best 3PL in the United States, and the R2 team plans to continually progress towards that goal.

“We will continue to invest in improving our service offerings and finding ways to add value for our customers,” he said.

Here are five tech events that happened in the past week and how they affect your business. Did you miss them?

1 – A new Microsoft Excel update will give power users plenty to get their teeth into.

The desktop version of Microsoft Excel will begin to support task automation, a feature that was previously only available to web application users. The new Office feature will allow users to create, edit, and run Office scripts through the All Scripts task pane and the Code Editor. The update will be available next month. (Source: technical radar)

Why it matters to your business:

Scripts can be used in all sorts of different ways. According at Microsoft, some examples include analyzing web traffic records to determine a user’s country of origin, managing interview meeting times, and creating a flow to scheduled meetings in Teams or posting to an instructor’s record for their class grades. With a little training (or outside help), scripts like these can make your spreadsheets an even more productive tool for your staff.

2— Paychex launches the industry’s first voice-enabled payroll solution.

Payment recently announced the rollout of a new payroll solution known as Paychex Flex. Paychex Flex will include Paychex Voice Assist, a conversational AI feature. The feature will allow payroll admins to run payroll through any Google Assistant-enabled device, which will hopefully help automate and simplify the payroll process. (Source: PRNewsWire)

Why it matters to your business:

Paychex is a current customer of my company. The reason I was interested in this news is because it’s just one of many voice-enabled apps and tools to come that will bring big changes to our office workflows.

3—Betterworks drives employee performance in the workflow with new, seamless integrations with Office 365 and G Suite apps.

Performance management company Best Works announced plans last week to integrate with several G Suite and Office 365 apps. The integrations will allow employees to quickly and efficiently manage performance using plug-ins for productivity tools such as Workspace, Excel , Outlook, and Teams. The goal is to foster more productive conversations between managers and employees. (Source: Web PR)

Why it matters to your business:

Betterworks is one of many performance management platforms that can help employers of all sizes ensure their workforce is motivated and managed to their strengths. Platform features include helping with conversations between employees and managers, feedback, and goal setting. Many of these apps seem aimed at enterprise-level organizations, so they might not be cost-effective for small businesses. But I believe that as they become more popular, versions suitable for smaller organizations will become more available.

4 – The evolution of Zoom from a video application to a communication platform.

Zoom recently announced an evolved “visual identity” and new look and feel, along with renamed names for familiar features. Zoom Chat will now be known as Zoom Team Chat to promote greater collaboration, and features such as Zoom IQ for sales, Zoom Contact Center and Zoom Whiteboard will also continue to evolve to better meet the needs of remote teams. (Source: Zoom)

Why it matters to your business:

There is no doubt that more people are finally coming back to the office. Zoom, which literally saved the world during the pandemic, now has to adapt to the new workplace. And it does this by trying to compete with Microsoft, Google, and Slack. One thing in their favor: Zoom has always been more reliable — and easier to use in my opinion — than most other collaboration apps out there, so that may help some companies sell those new features.

5— Logitech’s new webcam has a built-in privacy shutter. |

Logitech introduced its new webcam called Brio 500. The new camera – which comes in a compact and sleek design – also contains a physical shutter for privacy. To operate the shutter, users simply turn a dial on the right side of the webcam. (Source: The edge)

Why it matters to your business:

Leanspace, the company building the space industry’s digital infrastructure, announces the second close of its start-up cycle from earlier this year. European Space VC Herius Capital, based in Budapest, Hungary, has joined the oversubscribed €6 million ($6.4 million) initial funding round. Herius joins existing investors Karista and 42CAP, as well as other leading organizations supporting Leanspace such as Seraphim Space and Bpifrance.

With its one-of-a-kind cloud platform, Leanspace enables space organizations to leverage advanced digital technologies to manage their space missions. In an industry that still relies on software tools developed decades ago and heavily manual processes to move and share data, digitization is the key stepping stone to greater operational efficiency.

Dr. Kornél Szabó Managing Partner of Herius Capital: “We are excited to join LeanSpace in its mission to digitize the space industry via the cloud, as we see modern software tools as essential enabling infrastructure for the space industry. LeanSpace’s excellent team builds such critical software infrastructure with deep technical and space industry experience; their vision fits perfectly with Herius’ vision for the future of the industry”.

All players in the space industry are striving to become more agile, reduce costs and provide better service to their customers. Despite this need, many organizations still keep their data in spreadsheets, have teams working in silos, and waste time analyzing information manually. The solution involves the use of cloud-native integrated software infrastructures and digital technologies, which allow them to significantly improve their operation.

“In the space industry, we tend to see only the hardware part, but software is now everywhere. As Natya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, said in 2015, “Every company is a software company”, explained Alvaro Alonso Ruiz, co-founder and CCO of Leanspace, “Space organizations use software to design satellites, control testbeds, operate assets, derive analytics, produce and distribute products, manage relationships with customers… When all of your organization’s operations are powered by software, there’s no denying that your business is a software business. The challenge facing space companies is to implement a modern and comprehensive software strategy across their entire organization. »

Leanspace enables space organizations to implement such a comprehensive software strategy and adopt new approaches such as regaining full internal control over their software ecosystem, implementing digital continuity between tools and teams and finding ways to abstract their engineers from the complexity of space software. The result is a drastic increase in agility and reduced costs.

With the Leanspace platform, space companies can digitize or, for new entrants, be born digital.

About Herius CapitalHerius Capital is a Budapest-based space industry-focused venture capital firm whose mission is to strengthen the European NewSpace industry and leverage the growth potential of space technology companies. As an activist investor, Herius supports the next generation of space entrepreneurs through its industry expertise and extensive network in the space sector.

Let’s be realistic. Nobody likes to budget. Unless, of course, you’re an accountant or really like spreadsheets. But those numbers revealed a hidden secret. And that’s the benefit of creating a budget and sticking to it.

In this episode of From Military to Millionaire, former Marine David Pere explains how to budget, even if you hate budgeting.

Spoiler: You can even do this without tracking expenses!

Budgeting made easy

There are tons of tools out there for military members and military families to track their budget. USAA, Navy Federal, and even Veterans United offer all sorts of tips and tricks. So why does the precinct feel like the end of the world on payday?

Because no one really knows how to budget.

Luckily for us, David is here to help.

Budgeting should be a lifestyle you can sustain. The first step is knowing what you are spending. To get started, David recommends pouring a strong cup of coffee and sitting down at your computer. Once you’ve checked all your social media feeds, it’s time to get to work.

Step One: Log into every bank account you have and analyze the statements for the last two or three months. You can separate your expenses into categories such as groceries, restaurants, gas, entertainment, or whatever else you spend your money on.

Step Two: Here’s a bit of math. But you can do it! Now is the time to figure out how much you are spending on what you need versus what you want, and reduce wants as much as you comfortably can. That doesn’t mean you never spend on the things in life you love but don’t need. It just means finding a balance where you spend less. Any money you have left can start going to something like debt repayment or emergency funds, instead of sitting idle in your checking account where it’s easy to spend.

Finally, segment your cash expenses. Take the categories you’ve chosen and create an envelope for each. Write a predetermined dollar amount in each envelope and place the money inside. Use cash only, leaving your debit card at home, to avoid overspending. Plus, you don’t spend money once the money runs out, which forces you to stick to your budget. If you get a raise, instead of increasing your budget in your categories, start investing the extra money.

Ready to improve your finances?

David Pere is an active duty Marine who is on a mission to educate the military community about financial preparedness. Most people hear the term and roll their eyes, but Pere wants everyone to know that readiness can be achieved – without too much effort. He teaches personal finance and real estate investing to service members to help them increase their savings and increase their chances of achieving financial freedom.

Ian Chappell – When is a good time to bleed a player? https://webyantram.com/ian-chappell-when-is-a-good-time-to-bleed-a-player/ Sun, 11 Sep 2022 02:57:19 +0000 https://webyantram.com/ian-chappell-when-is-a-good-time-to-bleed-a-player/ This short setback for Brook did not diminish the importance of the question “When is the right time to bleed a player?” Brook is given the chance to make his England debut as he replaces the injured Jonny Bairstow, who has been in the races lately.

This short setback for Brook did not diminish the importance of the question “When is the right time to bleed a player?”

Brook is given the chance to make his England debut as he replaces the injured Jonny Bairstow, who has been in the races lately. Plus, The Oval – with renowned real pitching – is a good place for any hitter to start a Test career. The timing was also good, as Brook is in the middle of a red ball goal streak, despite his premier runs having been compiled earlier in the season.

Did Brook, who had been on a previous tour with the England test team, wait too long?

At 23, and having shown obvious talent over the past few years, he is definitely ready to seize his chance. There is a theory that around 20 is the right age to start the testing career of a player who has obvious talent. It is generally believed that if you make a talented player wait too long, it will hurt them more by playing against less good players during that time than if they are challenged by better opponents.

When asked about Australian academy youngster Ricky Ponting, I said: “He’s an international player waiting. All I need to know is what ‘he has in his head and in his heart. In a very short time, Ponting showed that he had all the elements necessary to be a very successful hitter at the highest level.

A good coach doesn’t need all the stats and spreadsheets to determine if a player is ready for a top rating. A few minutes of watching a good drummer will tell you if he has the talent required. Then it’s up to the individual’s desire and brain power whether or not they succeed.

That’s all there is to know about Brook. There is no doubt that he has all the shots and is ready to play them. And that’s the direction the game itself is heading overall. Yet, while it is great to see batting aggression become an integral part of the test of cricket, there remains the crucial issue of choosing the right time to attack. Cricket should never become an omnipotence game; the bat in test cricket must retain some artistry.

It is generally believed that if you make a talented player wait too long, it will hurt them more by playing against less good players during that time than if they are challenged by better opponents.

That’s why you have to be careful in passing comments. For example, if fast running is a recent phenomenon, as it is often expressed, then how come Victor Trumper scored a scintillating century before lunch on rain-stricken ground in 1902? How come Don Bradman charged 309 steps on the first day at Headingley in 1930, scoring 100 or more points in each of the first two sessions?

These are just two examples. Australian cricket, for its part, has always been based on a quick score when the opportunity arises.

The thing about Brook’s delayed debut is that England got lucky. First, there was Bairstow’s unlucky injury, and it also doesn’t hurt that Brook is sorting out his nerves by attacking first.

It would have been a mistake to bleed him as England struggled abroad as a team. It’s always better if a player can make his debut in a successful team and, if possible, on his home ground.

Although Brook won’t be making his home ground debut, at Headingley he is on a renowned batting ground and – barring an accident – he will now have the luxury of multiple back-to-back tests to show off his skills.

The truth is that there is no ideal time for a cricketer to make his debut, but it is the job of the selectors to try to pick a time when success is most likely to happen. for them. There’s no doubt that Brook has been waiting a long time, but his debut is still eagerly awaited and could well prove to be a success in England.

demon slayer is a hit shonen action series that has more than smooth animation from studio UFOtable to entice viewers. This fantasy anime series also features a cast of absolutely lovable and unforgettable characters with remarkable emotional depth, from the compassionate Tanjiro Kamado to his friends Inosuke and Zenitsu and beyond.

These characters can be further explored with their MBTI personality types and star signs. While Tanjiro was born under the sign Cancer the Crab, his electric friend Zenitsu Agatsuma was born under a very different sign – a more patient and deliberate sign that hints at Zenitsu’s cautious nature. Zenitsu’s sign may not describe him in great detail, but he definitely gives demon slayer fans a starting point to understand his character more deeply.

RELATED: Naruto: Tsunade’s Zodiac Sign & How It Defines The Fifth Hokage

The Patience and Diligence of Virgin the Maiden

Zenitsu Agatsuma’s birthday is September 3, which means he was born under the astrological sign of Virgo, one of the three earth signs. Virgo is represented by a maiden and a stalk of wheat, alluding to the grounded nature of this sign and its disposition to diligent work, such as farming. Virgo is a modal sign, which means people born under this sign are generally shy in most life situations, but that doesn’t mean they are weak willed. Quite the contrary: as a proper earth sign, Virgo represents the value of hard work, but in a different way from Scorpio and Aries the fiery ram.

The Virgo work ethic is about letting a good day at work speak for itself, where discipline, neat organizational skills, and focus on your goals mean everything. In modern terms, Virgo is an ideal office worker, never failing to properly file every paper and fill in those spreadsheets. Virgos take pride in a job well done, even if they aren’t that creative or experimental about it. Experimentation is the domain of air signs such as Gemini and Aquarius.

Virgo is ruled by the sixth house, which means Virgos care a lot about their health and take good care of themselves. Likewise, Virgos care deeply about mundane but important tasks, and they also focus on public service and work effectively to help others. Virgos won’t ask for much praise for all that hard, selfless work, though; since this earth sign is also ruled by Mercury, it has a shy and selfless nature and rarely draws attention to itself.

On the positive side, this makes Virgos empathetic, eager to help, and thorough in everything they do, making them reliable and disciplined allies to have in the workplace or elsewhere. On the other hand, Virgos can be perfectionists and exhaust themselves in a task that, in the eyes of others, has already been done well. Virgos can get lost in over-analyzing things, and they can also be biased or dismiss the advice of others. This methodical earth sign isn’t very open to new ideas, after all.

Zenitsu as Virgo in Demon Slayer

Even though Zenitsu Agatsuma doesn’t match his sign to a T, he does exhibit some general Virgo traits in the demon slayer animates in its own unique way. A good example is her habit of worrying about anything which, while annoying to other characters, is definitely a Virgo trait. One of Virgo’s weaknesses is their habit of over-analyzing things and over-emphasizing issues, and Zenitsu certainly does that when it’s time for a demon-slaying mission.

Zenitsu fiercely opposed the plan to enter the Spider Forest, for example, and he was also quite cautious in the “Entertainment District” story arc. Zenitsu the Virgo, worrying and mentally thorough, will attach to any problem and consider all the ways things could go wrong. When done right, it can help Zenitsu and his friends avoid disaster, though Zenitsu must understand that eventually taking risks is inevitable.

Zenitsu generally embodies the shy and selfless nature of his sign throughout. demon slayer, rarely asking for praise or special attention for any reason. He loves a good compliment, but otherwise this Electric Virgo prefers to let his actions speak for themselves, and in fact, he once stated his preference for living a normal, risk-free life over being a killer. demons. Indeed, Virgos are far from adventurous and prefer to thrive in a stable and safe environment where they can work and support their community.

Given the chance, Zenitsu would give up the way of the sword and become a farmer somewhere, but alas, it’s not his destiny. Zenitsu is a demon slayer, like it or not, and he can express his pristine nature not on a farm but with his wise caution and noble selfless spirit as a defender of the people. That’s just as well; demon slayers often do hard and thankless work to fight demons, and that suits Zenitsu’s Virgo mentality perfectly. For him, a good day’s work is its own reward, even if it’s terrifying.

When did the workplace become a battlefield? When did our boss become the enemy? Or maybe not the enemy, but a sad simulacrum of Officeis that david brent?

As Morrissey once sang, before he was sent into celebrity exile for becoming extremely old-fashioned politically, work is a four-letter word. And now, it seems, more than ever. Culturally, the office is in crisis: seen as a kind of workhouse, where employees have to toil in spite of themselves in a state of torpor and dejection and where management has to bring staff back to have a meeting with free drinks and morsels. of cake. Advice columns fill up with pointers on how to renegotiate your work hours and get the “balance” right.

On social media, the hot topics are always burnout and depression, and how to regain “self-power”. Life is a vision board to stick your dreams on. Or, to quote Meghan de Montecito in her interview with New York Magazine’s The Cut on life outside the Windsor bubble: “You have within you the power to create a life greater than any fairy tale you have ever read.

She was of course referring to the fact that she is a princess: at least in people’s hearts and minds. It was by chance that she gave up the official title and any interest in performing real princess duties when she and her husband moved to California and left everything royal behind.

But she believes in it. And she owns it. And who doesn’t have the right to dream? It’s not about the actual title, it’s about what it deserves to be.

I understand that employees are upset: wages are well below inflation, house prices are prohibitive, and the WFH experience has reassessed how and where we do our work. This is a particularly tense time in the workplace, as many sectors threaten to strike and the cost of living crisis has taken a toll on financial plans.

I am not being flippant about this crisis, nor am I suggesting that employees might not have legitimate concerns. But I’m depressed by the emergence of a mindset, fueled by TikTok and social media, that celebrates a culture of entitlement and doing the bare minimum at work. Now we have “silent abandonment”, as coined by TikTok user and musician @zaidsmusic. “You don’t just quit your job,” he says of the change in mindset toward work. “You no longer subscribe to the hustle culture mentality that work should be your life.”

It’s likely easier to quit smoking quietly if you’re browsing through spreadsheets of data or doing other solo tasks than in other areas of work. I’m curious, however, how silent abandonment might occur in other work environments where the bare minimum test is slightly more opaque. Can a leader resign, for example? Is the flavor and care with which a dish is presented part of a basic professional obligation or would it be considered “beyond”?

Or what about those who work in healthcare? Is it okay to disregard the patient’s suffering if all you need to do is done? Should a nurse show more tenderness when changing a dressing? Or help a new mother, to whom she officially has no “duty of care”? Should a surgeon be expected to put a little more effort into making sure you get a tidy scar? Maybe a barber who would quietly quit would cut your hair with total skill, but offer no small talk, or turn down that extra zush of spray. Again, hairstylists are often cited as enjoying the highest rates of job satisfaction – they are strong subscribers to the idea that work can be your life.

Quiet quitters have always sat among us. Once upon a time, they were called slackers, some kind of counterculture waster who wants to go after the man. Alternatively, there’s the watchmaker, that joyless pedant who puts on a huge performance by taking every second of his lunch hour and clocking in at 6 p.m. sharp. But while watchmakers get a bad rap, the silent quitter is presented as something of a modern worker’s folk hero – the 2022 equivalent of Sally Field stamping on the factory counter in the Oscar-winning drama Norma Raeif Norma Rae sat in her home office rather than a textile factory, and didn’t operate machinery but plod through emails.

Quietly quitting, it is argued, should serve as a sort of corrective to a work culture that has been rendered toxic by the failure to recognize or compensate staff. To quote all the wellness gurus: no one lies on their deathbed wishing they had spent more time at work. But, I’m not sure the idea is that revolutionary. The quiet quitter was still among us. Just as there have always been “above and beyond” people working very hard to clean up all the mess left behind by lazy people and, in my experience, less likely to complain.

And while it’s probably old-fashioned, I want to believe we should be proud of doing things the best we can. Am I such a tragic “Boomer” that I think worthwhile work is worth doing well? And, unless we’re all in this together, the silent resignation movement will only further deepen those fissures in the workplace that put our individual needs ahead of everyone’s well-being.
