When you look at transportation and the supply chain in general, the transparency component is becoming more and more important for all parties involved. But probably even more important is that there’s a lot of good that can come with the data to drive efficiencies in the broader supply chain — whether that’s site appointment management to a variety of different KPIs and report outs that can be built.
