For carriers navigating today’s transportation challenges, operating on thin profit margins is a way of life. Even with global freight volumes soaring, carriers face several challenges in creating a sustainable, profitable business, and it begins with the driver shortage, driver pay increase, and high driver turnover. Add in rising fuel costs, hours of service limits, and new consumer expectations, and it’s no surprise that freight carriers are often struggling to squeeze more efficiencies from their operations.
Using disparate systems and spreadsheets to manage transportation strategies is no longer a viable option to compete in an increasingly digitized world. The key to sustainable success is finding the hidden efficiencies in the daily operations, while closely monitoring fleet assets and drivers to mitigate risks.
