    Technology in freight transport

    Currently, we rely on the help of several tools and systems capable of improving logistics efficiency and making it even more attractive to the customer.

    The innovation provided by technological advances in transport extends to different levels. From the internal chain of companies — in the control of processes such as warehousing, storage and handling of goods, through WMS systems —, to external activities, route planning, cargo monitoring, etc.

    Trucks, for example, currently, in addition to having greater load capacities and consuming less fuel, provide more safety and comfort to the driver.

    In this sense, the positive impact provided by technological resources within the routine of transport companies is indisputable.

    Benefits of Technology in Cargo Transport

    Check out some advantages of integrating advanced technologies into transport and logistics business models.

    1 — Cost control

    In Logistics, every movement of goods generates costs, and the use of technological tools, both software as hardware, help move faster, more organized and efficient.

    For storage, the use of RFID tags, Barcodes and QR Codes to help identify goods is essential.

    The optical readers together with the WMS, act in the conference, direction and inventory of stocks in a more agile way.

    2 — Security

    The use of technology provides safety in cargo transport, preserving the lives of drivers and other people who circulate on the country's highways.

    Tracking systems help locate vehicles and inhibit the action of gangs specializing in cargo theft.

    Another advantage is having the delivery status updated in real time at hand.

    3 — Agility of tax documents

    With the use of technology, it is possible to generate a greater amount of data and information in a much more agile way.

    The transfer of information via EDI guarantees effective communication of information and agility in collecting invoices.

    The use of applications such as delivery conference, without the need for left-handed movements, eliminates paperwork and generates information in real time.

    4 — Productivity

    Speed ​​and efficiency in data analysis can be provided by solutions based on Artificial Intelligence (AI), which contribute to the efficiency and productivity of operations and the company as a whole.

    Having good logistical planning is essential for improving productivity. Solutions such as optical readers, smart labels, WMS system, shipping system and transport system make logistics more agile and productive.

    A well-organized warehouse, identified products, generate efficiency in the separation and distribution of goods.

    5 — Reduction of failures in the operation

    Technological solutions deal with a huge amount of data and facilitate the execution of tasks by reducing the occurrence of failures.

    6 — Greater fleet control

    With technological advances, the development of trucks and trailers contribute to a better control of the car's efficiency, compensation of parts until the stop for maintenance and identification of problems in the fleet, even before the problem happens.

    Weight proportionality controls on the trailer, load distribution positioning for better delivery efficiency are processes already used by carriers.

    • Through fleet monitoring, it is possible for the carrier to minimize accident problems and also manage drivers' journeys, monitoring routes, stops and overtime.
