The coronavirus crisis is a story with an uncertain ending. What is clear by now is that the human impact is already tragic, and that the economic impact will severely affect the industry.

All companies without exceptions need to act immediately to protect their employees, address business risks, and help mitigate the outbreak the best way they can by adopting new ways of conducting their businesses.

Transition to remotely-controlled operations to ensure the protection of employees

During the health crisis, and for contingency reasons, remote work has been established as the default operating mode, resulting in reduced social contact and limited exposure on all field related work.

  • Providing employees remote access to critical information to facilitate the communication between drivers and operations personnel.
  • Remote training of drivers with indications of areas for improvement available both to the company and the driver.

Transition to automated processes to rapidly increase productivity

We are glad and proud to see that our customers are taking advantage of the current challenges to re-imagine and re-invent, one step at a time but at a fast pace, their operations.

  • Reducing dependencies: automation of work enables companies to continue operations even when labor is unavailable.
  • Assuring business continuity: trucking companies must be able to keep performing critical services to the population and save jobs in the process.
