Verizon, one of many recognized powerhouses in wired and wireless communications technology, is currently offering a free eBook that provides information for fleet owners that can potentially save thousands of dollars a year, if not more. These savings emerge amongst fuel costs, labor costs, fleet maintenance costs, and insurance costs. This eBook is centered around controlling fleet costs using technology, and it offers some surprising solutions.

Technology: Help or Hindrance?
For now, it seems the regulations will determine the face of trucking technology, but as drivers and owners work more closely, there is a greater chance that an accord can be reached through which these two parties can both receive adequate benefits and compliance.
