On the Move Systems has announced that it is developing an app that will help truckers and trucking companies to use Big Data and analytics to streamline their routes and deliveries.
Though the trucking industry has been notoriously resistant to technological change, the On the Move CEO says that the app can help trucking companies drive down costs and increase profit. “Big Data gives truckers valuable insight into current and future trends, enables them to identify new market opportunities and more effectively determine the true cost of operating their businesses,” he says.
The app promises to provide marketing, research, and management to allow trucking companies to make better business decisions. The app will allow larger trucking companies to connect to and contract with smaller, independent companies to increase efficiency and reduce overall costs.
On the Move Systems also sees the app as a solution to the driver shortage problem. They say that the app would help the trucking industry to improve their image, making it easier to recruit new drivers. They also say that the app will allow trucking companies, recruiters, and drivers to connect to each other in one place, streamlining the recruiting process.
