Maximizing Labor Efficiency with Real-Time Visibility
Labor costs are one of the top expenses in the supply chain, but manual processes and siloed systems can lead to inefficiencies that drain budgets.
Supply chain leaders are increasingly turning to freight tracking software, real-time transportation visibility platforms (RTTVPs), to automate manual tasks and streamline collaboration, saving time and money across a variety of supply chain roles.
“Of all the different technologies in supply chain management and fleet management, this is by far the largest area of growth that I’ve seen in any technology. Visibility has been the number one area where people are investing.” Bart de Muynck, VP Research, Transportation Technologies, Gartner
What Are Real-Time Transportation Visibility Platforms?
Real-time transportation visibility platforms (RTTVPs) are software solutions that provide live tracking and status updates on the location of goods in transit. This information is most often collected through integrations with the dedicated GPS and telematics devices on the truck or shipping container and is ingested into a cloud-based platform.
Advanced visibility technology gives shippers the ability to automate manual processes and provides the information they need to make proactive decisions about their freight operations, improving efficiency and delighting their customers.
