On the Move Systems’ today pointed to a recent trucking industry newsletter that has greatly strengthened its plans to introduce a cutting-edge, technology driven “Uber-for-Trucking” platform aimed at connecting national and local carriers to maximize efficiency, optimize routes and reduce costs.
In the latest edition of the respected Ahern Advisory, publisher Andy Ahern examines the ever-expanding role of technology in the trucking industry and states, “Technology is on the rise, and I have continually stated that trucking needs to embrace technology and be prepared for substantial growth in technology over the next 5 years. If you are a trucking company and you’re not ahead of the technology curve, you are going to struggle.”
OMVS CEO Robert Wilson said Ahern’s comments confirm the company’s research and due diligence. “Trucking companies continue to invest heavily in technology in an effort to wring every last dollar of profit from their vehicles,” Wilson said. “And our research shows trucking firms are hungry for a technology driven, shared economy solution like the one we are now developing. We’re garnering a lot of interest from the industry and that bodes well for revenues once we release our shared economy platform.”
OMVS continues to seek out and recruit local and national trucking firms to join its shared economy network. Led by Uber, Lyft and Airbnb, analysts estimate the total market for shared economy services to be $450 billion.
