Your video was going well (even if most of it was known) until you hopped on your soap box for #13. It's not a male-dominated industry because of the implied sexism. It's male dominated because women don't want to do or cannot handle the physical labor required. Women take office jobs because they're more mental, less physical. The myth of women being paid less has been debunked over and over, please quit regurgitating it. In addition, you completely ignore the fact that most women do not *CHOOSE* to pursue work in this industry (did you? No). You make baseless assumptions assuming because women don't *want* to work as much in the physical shipping industry, that males discriminate against them. *For clarification:* Women, who have the same educational background and the same years of experience, earn more than men do. Men tend to make more *overall* because women will leave their jobs to raise children, do not work as much overtime, and leave their jobs for other jobs more often than men do.

Lars Greiner (11 months ago)
this is really a dangerous article as it is so flawed and wrong as to be dangerous to anyone looking at this industry, where to start and finish. The comment that amazon and ali baba have 'perfected' shipping, is so flawed, the new technologies and change in documentary requirements mean that this is constantly changing and they make a lot of mistakes, but these are generally hidden and/or blamed on others. The best advise they should give is to speak to experts in shipping, consultants, and not build this themselves. This is true macro economics and not for the faint hearted.

the lack of women is due to women not being physically as strong as man this isn't sexism its biology. if you work in heavy industry you will be moving heavy equipment and in cases carrying heavy loads (stevedore) you need to be strong and i'm sorry if you don't like this but women are not as strong as men, fact!

These are interesting.Inhave to disagree on a few things. Amazon and Alibaba is doing good because they dominate most of the market share. Once competitors join in, they will lose marketshare. UPS and FedEx have major contracts with USPS. Second: there isnt discrimination against women in this industry. They prefer to be in offices. Truck driving is not a glamorous field at all. You're hauling product that you are responsible for. You drive for hours. (11 hours driving and 14 hours on duty regulated by the FMCSA). Its very physical. Dropping trailers, adjusting axles to be at legal weight limits. Securement. Driving in dangerous and tight areas with height and length restrictions. This is a skill. A few autonomous developers stopped pursuing autonomization with trucks because of the liability You forgot to mention trains also transport goods as well. They are limited to what they can carry. Mostly dry goods. No produce, hazardous or specialized. Only specialized equipment can carry overheight/over weight/oversize. As well as, temperature controlled. Freight Brokers do not lease. They are freight forwarders that need a bond of $75K to broker freight. They are like telemarketers. They cold call manufacturers, buyers and warehouses to locate trucks to move their freight. Brokers and Agents are the middleman. The broker tells the agent what to sell the freight for (i.e. $5,000 broker tells agent to sell for 40% profit ($2,000 net)). Warehouses are big money. Especially temperature control and frozen storage(food/drugs). You can charge per square foot per day/week/month/year. I networked with a person who has a 100,000 sq foot warehouse and charges $5 per sq foot per day. And to avoid no payment, he has a factoring company to back him. If they dont pay, the factoring company pays it and he wholesales the product and splits it with the factoring company. There are billions to be made, but you'll need more than data to learn this industry. Cheers.
