Good communications is more than just a two way street where a dispatcher can carry on a conversation with a driver in the field. It also is a way to send data back and forth which can be turned into useful operational information.
Walzik, Inc today announced the Strategic Movements QuickBooks Interface, a connection between QuickBooks Online and Strategic Movements, their web application for route planning, scheduling, and dispatching.
Businesses are always in the process of reducing costs. Last mile product delivery is one place where costs can be reduced. Any business that does not use some type of route optimization or dynamic routing is leaving money on the table.
There are many ways to get information about trends and possible opportunities in almost all fields. This morning, I was reading the October, 2020 issue of Trains magazine and found an article on intermodal opportunities. While Strategic Movements does not handle intermodal shipments, the article cited some interesting statistics on motor freight in general.
