Electric Trucking Systems

Once upon a time, electric transportation systems were considered a joke. However, as the world is fast moving into environmentally conscious ways of living, you will find that even trucking systems and solutions are now shifting to an electric model. This revolutionary shift will cut back on fuel and repair costs that would otherwise demand free-flowing funding.

Let’s Build Platoons!

Did you know that trucking systems using telematics to communicate with one another can form platoons for increasing efficiencies and reducing delays in delivery? The telematics system allows trucks to communicate with one another by sharing each other’s information. Through this communication, they are able to form long lines thereby reducing emissions and overall fuel consumption.

An Integrated IoT System

By integrating an Internet of Things (IoT) system into trucks, companies can now manage a plethora of data ranging from location tracking to fleet alignment and ensuring eco-friendly shipping routes. As the world gradually moves towards a technologically advanced setting, we will find ourselves amidst a bright future of the trucking industry. The IoT system will help with better integration of fleets and support sensory data to enhance efficiencies.

A Hybrid Model

Although it may seem that the age of self-driving trucks is upon us, the role of humans will never completely end. Experts at Uber postulate that innovations in trucking technologies may encourage automation; however, humans will still need to take over during the last few miles through urban and industrial areas. This is primarily because of the complexities of such areas that may not align with a self-driving truck’s interface.

As the world moves towards a digital hub of tech-savvy systems and integrations, the trucking industry is not far behind in technological advancements. From the integration of telematics to the Internet of Things, the future of the trucking and transportation system is looking very bright. In other words, it will be about increasing efficiencies, reducing fuel consumption, and emissions. At AGM Transport Inc., we are always looking for innovations that will enhance overall service delivery and support our client’s businesses.
