EFT has just released an infographic on trucking IT, providing the industry with a snapshot on investment trends, impactful technologies and innovation gaps in the trucking space.
Based on a survey of over 200 top executives conducted in November of 2014, the infographic was designed to provide industry executives with a quick, easily digestible overview of some of the latest trends in technology in trucking.
Key findings include:
Increased interest by fleet executives in TMS improvements – 32% wanting improvements
IT budgets showing signs of increases – 57% reporting increases
Only 5% of fleets reported decreased budgets
‘Technology is increasingly a key differentiator for logistics companies.’ Said Chris Saynor, CEO of EFT. ‘Trucking is no exception, and so seeing recovery in IT budgets is a trend we expected to see as demand picks up in the recovering economy.’
The infographic is a pre-cursor to the full-fledged Trucking Technology Report which will be released in January 2014.
