Webtech Wireless will be exhibiting at this year’s TransForum User Conference and Exhibition in Nashville, Tennessee, September 21-24, 2014. Visit us at booth #227!
As always, the TransForum Conference will provide an incredible array of opportunities to network with leaders from various organizations and positions within the industry. Attending the event is your ticket to gain insights from many of these leaders, including Webtech Wireless on existing and emerging challenges, and the technology solutions and best practices that ensure your organization will come out on top.
Some of the more critical challenges faced by the industry that can impede or halt a carrier’s ability to grow:
Regulation: One of the most immediate concerns to industry stakeholders is the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate; however, there are several other regulatory mandates on the horizon that can potentially impact the industry.
Freight Pricing: Flat in 2013, consistent industry growth is required for pricing to improve.
Driver Availability: The ATA forecasts the driver shortage will total roughly 239,000 by 2022. Eric Starks, President of FTR (Transportation Intelligence) states in a Commercial Carrier Journal article, “We are facing easily the largest collection of regulatory changes in history. There are 20 regulations already started or are coming into play that either take a driver out of the system, or cause a productivity dip that requires adding another driver.”
Given that technology plays an incredibly important role in addressing these top challenges – technology can enable regulatory compliance, technology can help optimize your business performance and improve bottom line results and technology can generate operational efficiencies that can offset driver shortages, it’s the perfect time to attend TransForum.
