2 taken to hospital after UPS semitruck, dump truck collision on I-15 – St George News

Two men were transported to Beaver Valley Hospital and southbound traffic on Interstate 15 was redirected for several hours after a UPS semitruck and a dump truck collided in Beaver County Wednesday afternoon.

At 4:33 p.m., a triple-trailer UPS semitruck was traveling behind a slow-moving dump truck in the same southbound lane of Interstate 15 near milepost 124 when the semitruck crashed into the back of the dump truck, Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Preston Holgreen said.

The dump truck rolled and landed on its top while the middle UPS semitrailer tipped over into the median of I-15. The rest of the semi’s trailers blocked all southbound lanes as a result of the accident, Holgreen said.

Atlanta startup Roadie raises $10M from UPS, others to disrupt the shipping business – Atlanta Business Chronicle

An Atlanta startup wants to do the shipping industry what Uber has done to the taxi business.

Roadie puts unused capacity in passenger vehicles to work by connecting people with stuff to send with drivers heading in the right direction. Essentially, the service allows drivers to monetize their daily commute, or vacation road-trip to Disney.

“There’s somebody going just about everywhere from everywhere all the time,” Roadie CEO Marc Gorlin said. “If you can tap that traffic, you have a larger distribution network than UPS, FedEx and USPS combined.”

The company said package volume and revenue results came in as expected but higher-than-anticipated peak season expenses cut into the company’s operating profit. A couple of research firms, Barclays and Macquarie, have downgraded the stock, according to reports this morning.
