There’s no doubt technology has changed the way we live, disrupting everything from how we dine and shop to how we work and travel. While most industries have been forced to adapt, some have managed to continue on with business as usual while technology alters everything around them.
Drivers and personnel who have access to fuel can be tempted to steal it, causing an acute problem for organisations both large and small. The inability to monitor your fuel and prevent theft can lead to significant financial loss.
Online shopping has altered consumer and business expectations around standard delivery times. As a result, Carriers face increased demands to transport goods faster and more reliably to complete more deliveries than ever before.
This, coupled with issues like driver shortages, fuel increases and roadworks or accidents causing diversions on our roads, creates an almost impossible situation for fleet operators. They must do more with less; more deliveries and miles with fewer drivers and trucks. At the same time, they must also battle the need to cut costs, comply with a host of regulations and face a range of daily hurdles that could prevent goods reaching their destination.
Technology is disrupting the trucking industry in a way we have never seen before. As automakers continue to innovate and define the future of the connected car and autonomous vehicles, the commercial transportation industry is taking note, and fleet managers are adjusting the way they oversee their vehicles and drivers.
Throughout human civilisation there’s been a need to transport freight. This has evolved over time as new technologies were introduced and widely adopted.
