In the trucking industry, staying up-to-date on technological trends is of the utmost importance. This is not only for relevance purposes but for ensuring optimal efficiency for the company. TeamOne Logistics shares the top three ways in which the industry is being affected by these new technologies:
1. Driver monitoring. Data sharing technology is an excellent way to keep tabs on drivers and their vehicles. Data from within the car tracks the mileage, timing, and even the route that the drivers take to determine what the optimal routes and times are for quality service. This information is used to compile trends in the industry to make improvements as necessary.
2. Communications. High-tech communication tools enable drivers to communicate more effectively with other drivers, dispatchers, and office staff. Whereas CarrierWeb provides businesses with devices that improve in-cab driver communication, TeamOne Logistics focuses on creating and implementing workforce solutions for logistics-enabled companies. The two have recently announced their collaboration in efforts to better serve transportation and logistics companies in reducing costs and improving business operations.
3. Traffic coordination. With the implementation of new technology that connects trucks to one another remotely, fleet information can be coordinated in order to form driving patterns, relay traffic reports, and even monitor the surroundings for areas not easily noticed by the driver, including blind spots. In addition to overall better staff communication, this traffic coordination technology also helps to identify issues on the road that may prevent drivers from completing jobs in a timely manner. This driverless technology makes the driver’s job much easier and, thus, more efficient as a result.
