Here’s a secret. There’s a little thing out there and it’s improving every day. It’s called technology and it’s here to stay.
Jeff Sibio-Dir. Industry Marketing, Transportation & Logistics at Intermec Technologies, in an interview with Big Truck TV, acknowledged the fact that dramatic changes have occurred in the trucking industry over the last 15 to 20 years due to technology.
As Sibio noted, the trucking industry went from “bare most components like location” to “texting back and forth to the driver,” asking questions such as “Where are you?” or “What are you doing?” to tools that deliver a “much higher level of value,” such as voice, data, and imaging tools (http://www.bigtrucktv.com/item.aspx?t_tmw2010int004).
With evolving technology, Sibio explains that questions such as “Can I prove that I delivered the product in the same shape it was given?” and “Can I document all activities?” can now easily be answered “Yes” with Road Scholar Transport’s advanced technology features.
