Today, transportation and logistics are more complicated than ever before. For many already working in the industry, there's a high likelihood that you are already using some form of electronic document management system for the myriad of paperwork that is required.
You're probably also aware of the employee time used in the documentation process, and the high cost of human error for your business when mistakes occur.
