From Jack Roberts, TruckingInfo:
Technology will soon alter existing jobs and create new ones. And now is the time to be considering how your fleet will navigate those changes.
Sticking your head in the sand and pretending that these technologies aren’t going to impact your business isn’t an option. While there’s no need to panic, I’ve talked to several futurists who’ve told me that given the rate of change today, fleets that do fall behind on the technology front will never be able to catch up. Which means that keeping an eye on what’s happening, thinking about the implications and opportunities new technology will offer, is critical now so you’ll be ready with fresh ideas when the planning and execution phase of trucking’s tech wave finally arrives.
