It is very easy to get into a lengthy conversation with trucking industry folks about communication and the future of JIT - Just In Time logistics. Indeed recently we have been talking about all the great communication systems available and coming forth in the near future in the trucking industry.





















The driver does not need to alert the dispatcher he needs a fuel stop or that he has a flat-tire or is stuck on the side of the road or even that he is going 10 mph average stuck in traffic. The dispatcher already knows all that because he can see exactly what is on the driver's instrument panel and read the rest of the data on his computer in the dispatch office. In fact chances are he has re-adjusted the route accordingly and the estimated time of arrival.

All in real-time and thus no more guessing or estimating for the client waiting on delivery. At this level of communication, the Just in Time modeling is much more feasible in that it immediately shows any weakness or challenges allowing additional increased and incremental efficiencies.

Communication Systems in Trucking and The Trucking Industry have come a long way in the last decade and the Real Time Virtual Dash Boards are one major innovation that improve efficiency, save full and improve safety and it came Just in Time.

   There are literally hundreds of truck driving schools across the country, each with different programs.  As with any business, there are good ones and there are bad ones.  But you have to know what to look for in a trucking school.
  There are essentially
three different types of truck driver training programs.  The first is a private school, the second is a public institution and the third is a training program run by a motor carrier.

And yet often we have neglected perhaps to discuss some of the excellent applications that are now possible with technologies like Virtual Real-Time dashboards, where the dispatcher at the trucking company can see what the driver sees on the dashboard?
