What if the information highway were really a highway?
The ability to access the right information immediately and be more efficient is crucial for any business. But many businesses are not set up to exchange data between departments, let alone while on the road. This is the challenge facing transport companies. On a smarter planet, we can deliver vital information to the right people at the right time in the right place.
Rosenau Transport, a midsize business specializing in regional general freight transport in Canada, found a solution that cuts operating costs and makes their clients' supply chains smarter. With the help of IBM and Banks-Hill Systems, an IBM Business Partner, Rosenau equipped its fleet of trucks with on-board technology to optimize routes, reduce fuel consumption, and provide clients with up-to-the -minute alerts to keep track of their shipments. A performance analysis of the telemetric information received helps determine the optimal load and vehicle configuration, reducing their carbon footprint. It enables Rosenau's customers to make informed supply chain decisions even before shipments arrive. It all adds up to increased efficiency and customer satisfaction.
