QuintiqGoing the legacy route can be an expensive mistake.

By Robert Oliver

It’s hard to resist “free.” Many organizations already have route planning tools in place. Others may have transportation management systems (TMS), which often offer low-cost or free routing capabilities. This gives rise to questions such as: Why spend money on a new system when you already have one in place? Why pay for a system when you can implement one that you have a free or low-cost license for?

By Michael Rofman

There’s no question that technology is transforming trucking, just as it has disrupted and transformed so many other industries. It has improved performance, vastly increased the amount and type of data that trucking businesses have to evaluate efficiency, and it’s also changing the role of drivers. Along with that, these new technologies can and should be viewed as cost-savings instruments.
