New Digital Platforms Transforming Vehicle Logistics
The goal of this webinar is to cover the history of automotive logistics and how emerging technologies are addressing transportation challenges to ultimately better service shippers and carriers. These new technologies are making this a more much efficient and cost-effective auto transportation process for both shippers and carriers. A critical component in this is the complete visibility of the end-to-end logistics process, from assigning loads all the way through delivery, both internally and externally with customers.
Carriers are critical to the whole transportation process and there are many changing dynamics in the industry with carriers, drivers, and the challenges they are facing. There are programs and technology that are developed to help carriers more efficiently transport inventory. These are things such as backhauling, load, route optimization, etc. that really help carriers plan their routes most efficiently while also ensuring they get the max capacity to drive their business. This type of information is within their carrier apps, Carrier TMS, and can be integrated into the Shipper systems.With all these advances in the industry including AI-based carrier pricing tools, automotive businesses can take advantage of digital platforms to better serve their transportation needs. This means they can manage their end-to-end vehicle logistics to save time and money and know at any given point in time, what is the status of their inventory. This type of insight is critical for an automotive business to be successful in the current market.
