Transportation TIP List: Week of May 21, 2017

Over the past few weeks, stories surrounding technology services, software and security have taken up much of the supply chain news bandwidth. This week’s TIP List includes a few of these buzzy tech trends, such as the release of the Uber Freight app, the recent WannaCry ransomware attack and the impact of real-time load tracking for carriers. We’re serving up the latest in our high-tech list below!

Real-time track and trace technology and live load visibility could be a standard offering for carriers in order to keep customers happy.
  • It’s “Beyond Time” to Modernize U.S. Infrastructure: The lack of U.S. infrastructure modernization is causing an increase of expensive bottlenecks at ports, cities and elsewhere – and these bottlenecks are responsible for expensive delays in an increasingly-complex worldwide market.

What safety measures do you have in place to keep your organization secure in the event of a cyberattack?
