Trucker Path Launched COMMAND, a Platform for Operations and Driver Relationships, to the Trucking industry

Trucker Path | March 21, 2022

The most trusted mobile app for North American truckers, Trucker Path, has launched COMMANDtm. COMMANDtm is the industry’s first transportation system innovated to both enhance driver relationships and manage operations. The new Operations & Driver Relationship (ODR) platform integrates the driver-centric Trucker Path app, with over a million users, with operational tools available in conventional transportation management systems.

 "Our ODR platform is a new type of TMS that offers unrivalled driver relationship features, advanced management capabilities, and third-party solution connections to simplify day-to-day activities while also assisting drivers in making the most of their time on the road." "With our ODR platform, truckers don't have to go back and forth between our popular Trucker Path app and the company's TMS system." Navigation, Parking, track & trace, and operations are all conveniently located in one location."

-Chris Oliver, CMO at Trucker Path

The Operations & Driver Relationship platform comes with a customized, company-branded version of the Trucker Path mobile app, with driver happiness being a cornerstone to success. Still, retention remains one of the major ongoing difficulties for trucking operations. Therefore, to give drivers a positive driving experience,

It includes information to make life on the road easier, such as:
  • Predictive parking availability in over 20,000 safe, truck-friendly places in real-time
  • Status of the weighing station
  • Ratings, reviews, images, amenities, detention reports, and GPS indicating where trucks enter/exit the facility
  • Regularly updated fuel prices
  • Reviews, ratings, photos, and listings of amenities for 300,000 POIs, including truck stops, rest areas, truck washes and scales, shipping facilities, repair shops, restaurants, hotels, and more

The all-in-one trucking platform features truck navigation, load and driver management, track & trace, financial, tax, maintenance, and settlement applications, as well as key metric reporting and a dedicated customer portal.

Many of TMS products entirely focuses on operational features, with the driver experience considered as an afterthought. "Where the rubber meets the road," as the saying goes, is where the driver is. It was only natural for us to create a platform that improves driver quality of life while offering the operational efficiencies that businesses require. "We've produced something that should have been in the business years ago; we took what we had, both in terms of successful goods and integrations with other well-known third-parties, and added operational capabilities that were desperately needed.

3D printing has been used by the automotive and aerospace industries to build prototypes for some time now. Components manufactured with 3D printing offer the same safety and stability as the traditionally manufactured components they replace but at a fraction of the weight. Integrating such components into finished aircraft helps save fuel and reduce CO2  emissions. In medical technology, additive manufacturing – the industry term for 3D printing – has already achieved standards on par with traditional manufacturing methods.

E2open Positioned Again as a Leader in 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Multienterprise Supply Chain Business Networks Report

E2open | May 11, 2021

For the second year in a row, Gartner has put E2open, a leading network-based provider of 100% cloud-based, mission-critical, end-to-end supply chain management software, in the Leaders quadrant with the highest potential to perform and completeness of vision in its 2021 Magic Quadrant for Multienterprise Supply Chain Business Networks. “Globalization and outsourcing have transformed industries, making them more competitive to deliver goods to market, but also more challenging and vulnerable to disruption,” said Michael Farlekas, president and CEO of E2open. “The bulk of operation – and business risk – now occurs outside the enterprise in several layers of upstream and downstream partners, with goods often crossing multiple territories before reaching consumers.” “These complex interdependencies across external parties require a new networked process of planning, optimizing, executing, collaborating, and orchestrating through all levels of partners,” Farlekas continues. “As a result, better business results are achieved, with decisions reflecting the actual realities of the whole end-to-end supply chain rather than isolated segments. We are delighted that Gartner has named E2open a Leader in this space.” We believe that to be considered a multi-enterprise supply chain business network in this Magic Quadrant, vendors must have a cohesive ecosystem that blends a network, applications, and artificial intelligence (AI). E2open provides a network that serves all four network ecosystems (demand, supply, logistics, and foreign trade), as well as a wide suite of supply chain management applications and field-proven AI to make sense of massive amounts of high-frequency data and simplify decisions. The platform's inherent partnership generates mutual value for brand owners and partners alike, fostering a safe ecosystem that can better capture market potential and survive disruption. “To deliver products to market, agile and resilient supply chains require a new way of thinking – one that helps businesses to turn themselves into orchestrators of global processes through an ecosystem of partners spanning demand, supply, logistics, and global trade,” said Pawan Joshi, executive vice president of product management and strategy at E2open.“For more than a decade, E2open has been a leader in this field – our network infrastructure combines visibility, process orchestration, and decision making to see what is happening in real-time, understand the business impact of changes at every stage of the process, analyze and take corrective steps, track execution, and allow continuous learning. Multi-enterprise networks provide instant benefit to businesses at every point of their supply chain journey and are key features of digital transformation.” About E2open They are building a more integrated, intelligent supply chain at E2open. It begins with sensing and reacting to real-time demand, availability, and delivery constraints. Their collaborative and agile supply chain platform, which brings together data from customers, distribution channels, suppliers, contract manufacturers, and logistics partners, allows businesses to use data in real-time, with artificial intelligence and machine learning, to make smarter decisions. All of this complex data is presented in a unified vision that involves your demand, supply, logistics, and global trading ecosystems. It is all evolving because of E2open.
