JOHAR | December 31, 2018

Over the last decade, trucking capacity has continued to tighten, making it increasingly difficult for shippers to find trucks to transport their bulk products. In 2019, many ocean carriers will be forced to sit longer at port waiting for trucks to pick up the cargo, which will prompt some to impose emergency intermodal fees or stop door delivery in response. By embracing advanced technologies, trucking organizations will become poised to move from automation to orchestration as 2019 progresses. By using predictive analytics, organizations can begin planning for supply and demand and better their execution. Challenges like the driver shortage will be inevitable — but the right technology can help maximize opportunities, reduce empty miles, and provide real-time orchestration to contribute to a happy and successful new year.

Article | March 30, 2020

The corona lock-down has one advantage: I finally have the time to read the stack of books on my bedside table.
