The Lord and Master Lives

  The Lord and Master   The company is headed for management from afar. I have predicted for years, that most dispatch, and management functions, will occur in one centralized location, with local managers, or supervisors, on-site just to crack the whip, manage driver issues, and to make sure everyone shows up.
       Jobs they haven’t learned to replace with technology, “yet”. 
  My understanding is, most of these jobs are division level jobs, and that most of these managers are on the “buy out, or get out” bubble.     
         Many of these management people are the major players in the “soul selling” this company has done in the last decade. These are the people that have done away with the “James E. Casey” form of management, and gone strictly to the “bottom line” philosophy of corporate management.
     Sometimes you reap what you sew.
     Telematics is the major reason the company no longer needs these managers. The company will be able to keep one guy, with a whip, to run 50 to 60 people.
     The company, as always, is in a technological transition. The last 5 years have seen incredible changes. Who knows what the next 5 years will bring.
    Management is overhead!
