With the recent rise of technology changing the face of the trucking industry, especially when it comes to compliance, it would be wise for fleet owners and their staff to tune in to the free trucking technology webinar being presented on August 7th from 2:00 pm-3:30 pm Eastern.
This webinar, conducted as a joint effort between the Trucking Industry Mobility and Technology Coalition and the U.S. Department of Transportation, will include information about new tools being made available to the trucking industry and the public through the Federal Highway Administration.
Freight Technology Assessment
Among these tools will be the “Freight Technology Assessment Tool,” a web-based technology that enables fleet owners to evaluate the effectiveness of new technologies across a number of metrics, giving companies the chance to see exactly how new software and hardware configurations will ultimately affect their bottom lines.
Additionally, the “Cost-Benefit Analysis Tool” will give state Departments of Transportation the ability to find the most effective and efficient technologies to benefit employees, trucking companies, manufacturers, and the public.
“The Trucking Industry Mobility and Technology Coalition and the U.S. Department of Transportation invite industry stakeholders to learn how technology assessment tools can help carriers identify investment opportunities and improve operations.” – Truckinginfo.com
