The digital supply chain encompasses more than just the truck, but also the entire transport ecosystem. We’ve already begun to see a merging of different technologies to create intelligent, complex and highly flexible systems that will help accelerate trucking into the future.
At a high level, it is the use of data and network-based support systems for managing and optimizing trucking transport operations, using many forms of digital technologies.
At a process level, it’s the full integration of connected trucks for real-time logistics data across the entire supply chain, from parts and materials suppliers to manufacturers to warehouses and distributors, ending with the end customer. The result is improvements in efficiency, transparency, flexibility, cost efficiencies and productivity.
