    Why does the trucking and logistics industry need on-demand solutions?

    A few years back, the trucking and logistics industry was quite different from now. The customer had to wait for several hours under the extreme weather conditions, and they had nothing to do just staring at their watch, it becomes more frustrating when called the driver, and he says only about to the reach them in the past 15 minutes. Those days were gone, and the trucking & logistics industry changed a lot due to the advancements in technology. Thanks to the on-demand trucking & logistic apps, with which you can hire a truck driver just with a click on your mobile. Let’s first put a spotlight on what is truck dispatch software?-

    “Online Trucking dispatch software allows the shippers to request service to the listed drivers, and then nearby drivers would accept the request and deliver the product.”

    So, the truck dispatch app is beneficial for both the shippers as well as for the drivers.

    🚚 Major problems in the Logistics Market: Answers with Truck Dispatch Software Solutions-

    The problem of “Empty Miles.”

    One of the challenging situations for the trucking & dispatching industry is the “empty miles problems.” The truck drivers had to return with the empty truck after dispatching, which poses a loss to the freight companies. For instance, in the USA, it is recorded that a truck’s empty mileage, on average, could go up to 28% of its total distance. 

    Solution: This problem has been solved using the online truck booking app, as the truck driver would get the booking request anywhere. So, it eliminated the empty miles problem.

    The problem of middlemen’s commissions

    Trucking & dispatching industry is also affected by the middlemen. Since the shippers need to take the help of the middlemen for the booking of their freights. As a result, these freight brokers charge hefty amounts from the shippers.

    Solution: Truck Booking app is a platform that permits the direct communication of the shippers and carriers. So, it eradicates the need for the middlemen and enhances transparency through logistical works and networks.
