This paper will review the key requirements when considering a mobility solution. Historically, enterprise mobility solutions – whether supporting a field technician, a warehouse worker or a delivery driver – have been deployed as a point solution, separate from the overall IT infrastructure.  However this approach has limitations in system scalability and manageability. Today, enterprises are taking a more holistic approach to mobility investments. In fact, according to VDC’s research, over the past three years CIOs and CTOs have consistently identified mobile solutions as a “top ten? IT investment priority.

Intermec recognizes these current and emerging requirements and has addressed them as part of the design of their next generation mobile platform: the 70 Series.

A mixed bag may be the most appropriate way to characterize the current state of manufacturing based on the most recent edition of the April edition of the Manufacturing Report on Business issued by the Institute for Supply Management today.

The Department of Transportation’s Federal Railroad Administration and Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (FRA) issued its long-awaited Final Rulemaking for “Enhanced Tank Car Standards and Operational Controls for High-Hazard Flammable Trains.”

U.S. carloads were down 1.6 percent at 278,294 carloads, and intermodal volume was up 5.6 percent at 279,0123 containers and trailers.

Even though the immediate prospects of a long-term federal surface transportation authorization remain dim, various media reports suggest that at least short-term help could be on the way.

For anyone not sold on the ongoing impacts of e-commerce on logistics and supply chain operations, comments by some influential industry executives at the recent National Shippers Strategic Transportation Council (NASSTRAC) Conference and Transportation Expo definitely would help change that train of thought.
