Industry leading companies need to turn trailers, drivers, and shipments faster while driving operating costs down. Velocity is the new currency for supply chain and logistics organizations.

According to an independent research, an average trailer shipment takes three days to move from one facility to the next with only eight hours on the road. Simply put, for 80% of the shipment time, the trailer is idling at a facility. This idle time typically results from trailer status delays and information inaccuracies along the supply chain.
