The science of freight tracking has come a long way from the days of phone calls and paper driving logs.
Tracking technology is evolving rapidly. Today, carriers can deploy small, easy-to-use devices that provide real-time data on the location, condition and scheduling of goods in transit. Where appropriate, system providers have supplemented GPS with more power-efficient alternatives such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. On this episode, we trace the evolution of tracking with two experts from Here Technologies: Peter Küth, product marketing manager for supply chain optimization, and Jason Palmer, industry marketing manager for transportation and logistics in the Americas. They’ll discuss the technology’s impact on routing, scheduling, visibility and customer service, bolstered by such modern-day innovations as the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence. And they’ll take a guess at where it’s all headed. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Executive Editor of SupplyChainBrain.
