John Taylor, chair of the Department of Marketing and Supply Chain Management in the WSU School of Business Administration, was quoted in a Crain’s Detroit Business article about last week’s flood, the impact it had on trucking/shipping, infrastructure and how technology helped lessen the impact. "The condition and readiness of underpass pumps is not high," Taylor said. Worse, the local highway system's chronic bottlenecks, bad rush-hour situation, and lack of transportation investment "cause planners to have to assume longer cycle times and deploy more trucks," he said.
