42Gears Help Logistics Services Streamline Their Supply Chains with Secure Mobile Devices
The logistics and supply chain industry revolves around the fast and accurate transfer of materials from the point of origin to the point of consumption. To remain competitive in today’s economy, firms have incorporated mobile technology into their operations. As a result, supply chain companies are arming their field forces with mobile devices for increased business productivity and better customer satisfaction.
When equipped with the latest freight management software, mobile devices are a powerful tool for navigating the freight transportation business. Mounted touch devices in trucks help drivers communicate, access corporate information while on the move, accept jobs, and optimize route planning to cut down on fuel costs Touchscreen devices on trucks also help drivers track shipments and inform other team members of shipments’ exact location.
Mobile Technology Empowers the Logistics Industry to Optimize the Fast Movement of goods
With field staff using mobile devices, communication between them and the central office has become seamless and smooth which has led to the availability of real-time updates. This uninterrupted communication helps the support team systematically analyze data and make more informed decisions, thereby directly helping business.
That said, field forces might access mobile applications that are not business-related, thereby losing focus and productivity. If this continues for long enough, the company may find itself with a very high bill for mobile data consumption. 42Gears’ products, SureLock by 42Gears and SureMDM by 42Gears, provide these companies with device lockdown and management solutions to make sure that their field forces do not use and download any unauthorized applications on company devices.
Starting on December 18, 2017, the US Department of Transportation began enforcing the ELD (electronic logging device) Mandate; this requires trucking companies to use electronic logging devices to record each driver's Record of Duty Status (RODS).
