Will you be the next trailblazer for digital and data?
These days, it feels like everyone is talking about the transformative power of data. It’s easy to find yourself questioning just how transformative it really is, especially with the transport industry’s poor track record for digital adoption. Can shippers optimise and adapt their transport operations and performance? Can we leave officially gut instinct, laborious phone calls and mountains of paperwork in the past? Our answer is a big YES...
...providing that you’re using the right data. That means 100% reliable, collated and organised to present clear evidence against an agreed set of criteria. Data for the sake of data is near worthless.
As for how to revolutionise transport operations and performance, read on to learn a little more about why leveraging easy to use, trusted comparisons with the wider market makes it possible.
But as much as we’re proud to be huge advocates for digitalisation, let’s keep it real for a moment. Times are tough for the transport sector for all sorts of reasons. Increased costs, regulatory requirements, driver shortages, pressure to build a strategy that includes both spot and contract, fast-changing customer habits, and demand for ‘the last mile’...none of us are strangers to the challenges faced by logistics today. Remember when we had the luxury of 28 days to fulfil orders? Now, if customers can’t expect to receive goods the next day (or even the same day) at their home address, they’ll simply look elsewhere.
