- 19:35 – Enabling Global End-to-End Advanced Visibility:
As the Amazon effect has raised customer and consumer expectations for transportation visibility, you cannot wait for the light at the end of the tunnel. You need a well-lit, transparent tunnel spanning all modes and geographies. Only then can you unlock the potential of your data by collecting it in real-time, seeing it clearly, and leveraging it effectively. New technology and partnerships across key TMS, ELD, and ERP providers have made advanced visibility possible without steep investments in proprietary software.
