Digital technology has come to transportation management — but its adoption is likely to be accompanied by a certain amount of pain.
One might think that freight transportation is the most basic function to execute within the supply chain, but it’s fraught with complications in the modern age. The driver shortage, capacity crunch, rising costs and unpredictable demand are a few of the challenges facing shippers today. Technology provides a solution, in the form of digital enablement — but what that does term precisely mean? And how can companies implement digital technology with minimal disruption to the organization? On this episode, we get answers from Eric Rempel, chief innovation officer with Redwood Logistics. He’ll discuss how companies can enact change management alongside the application of new technology, to bring the transportation function into the 21st century, and meet the challenges of the future. Hosted by Bob Bowman, managing editor of SupplyChainBrain.
