Does Your Smart Transportation Strategy Measure Up?

While IQ tests offer us a numerical glimpse into the human ability to reason and cognitive abilities, how do you measure the intelligence of your smart transportation strategy?

With an IQ test score of 276 – nearly doubling “genius-level” intelligence – many recognize YoungHoon Kim of South Korea as having the highest IQ in the world. Determining the IQ of your transportation management isn’t as easy as tasking a test … or is it?

This article explores the concept of “smart transportation.” Further, it reveals how our approach to continuous learning, collaboration, and innovation ensures a transportation management solution that stays ahead of the class.

What is Smart Transportation?

Transferring the concept of IQ to transportation management strategy, measuring your transportation system’s “intelligence” involves assessing efficiency, adaptability, and capabilities.
Thanks to technology and consumer behavior, we’ve seen a shift in measuring success for these indicators. Being smart isn’t enough; you need a transportation system that continues to learn and set the pace for the industry.

A smart transportation strategy leverages technology, data insights, hands-on learning, collaboration, and industry best practices. The result is a fluid transportation system that provides efficiency, responsiveness, and adaptability to market conditions and your business needs. Smart transportation gives you greater control through end-to-end visibility, real-time data integration, and proactive management capabilities.
