The Trucker Shortage
As manufacturers ramp-up production to meet the increasing demands of a growing U.S. economy, they are forced to deal with transportation shortages. They are faced with driver and equipment shortages for both long-haul and local deliveries. In addition to these issues, they are also experiencing significant increases in rail delivery lead times. As one of our customers put it, the rail and truck delivery systems are running at maximum capacity. The transportation system is full. Companies across the spectrum including manufacturing, retail, agriculture, and consumer goods must manage increased transportation costs and longer delivery times for both truck and rail shipments.
Who, what, where?
There has continued to be a lot of activity here at MAJIQ during the first 6 months of 2018. The common theme is to provide more and better service and offerings for our current and future customers. That has come in many different forms this year, including mergers and acquisitions, a new office location, as well as new customer start-ups and great new mobile software application functionality in our Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) product, Elixir. Check out the details below.
