Transportation Management Transported by Mobile Technology
Mobile technology is helping to solve problems in every corner of our lives, and for fleet managers, new capabilities are transforming the way they do business. Tasked with balancing the competing objectives of minimizing costs and maximizing services, mobile technologies that enable continuous connectivity with drivers, assets and cargo are helping fleet managers do their jobs smartly.
The increased affordability, reliability and speed of mobile technology enable virtually any fleet to take advantage of the “continuous connection” paradigm. For example, today’s low cost networks are providing enhanced communications capabilities by delivering vast amounts of data cheaply and quickly allowing for real-time information exchange. In addition, hardware has come a long way and vehicle operators now have rugged handhelds, smartphones and tablets that run customizable pick-up and delivery applications for better process automation.
