With so many advances in technology I wanted to see if the trucking industry was keeping up. The short answer is a big YES! There are so many programs, tools, and apps available right now it is almost crazy.
The trucking industry, just like every other industry, has taken full advantage of the resources available. All those gadgets, made life easier then ever!
A person could spend a couple weeks and never see everything that is out there. This is both good and bad. It is good because everything that makes life easier benefits us in other areas. Electronic logs can save time, and more accurately record information.
Technology keeps us in contact not just with our loved ones (which is important), but with other drivers, brokers, carriers, and the home base. What is the bad part? Is that there are so many to choose from and it can be hard to find the right one.
Why download apps? Main reason will be to save time, of course. Saving a few minutes here or there may not seem like much but it will add up over the course of a year. Think about it this way, if you saved ten minutes a week for 52 weeks, that’s 520 minutes or almost 9 hours! What would you do if you were able to gain the equivalent of one complete workday?
