State of Predictive Logistics & Precise ETAs
Wouldn’t it be great to know exactly when your goods are going to arrive at their destination? FedEx, UPS and the USPS have really improved package tracking so you can have a lot of confidence in the DAY that your package will arrive.
But, what is the state of real-time TRUCKLOAD visibility? Follow this link for a really powerful explanation of the “state of the technology” moving us to the point where we can pinpoint ETAs and even the condition of our goods on arrival.
Here at United Warehouse and UWC Transportation, we are really moving the needle on technology, but it takes years of deployment to get a complete solution implemented. So, what we’re doing today is providing the information about the ASSETS that we are using (trucks, trailers, personnel, forklifts, etc.) rather than the PRODUCT that we are moving. No one has the complete solution today, but we are taking big strides in the right direction by implementing this critical first part.
Here is another great link for more information on making progress for real-time visibility.
