  • How You Can Develop Uber For Trucking

    Ever since Uber became an international success, every service that deals with transportation has wanted to follow in its footsteps or even surpass it in terms of popularity. The so-called "Uberization" of the logistics industry is occurring at a rapid speed. We have already talked about logistics app development technology which focuses on freight transportation. This article is going to address the inquiries of our customers who would like to create Uber for delivery trucks.

    The Problem on the Logistics Market
    According to the American Trucking Association, trucks move almost 80 percent of total freight in the US. At the same time, the gross revenue from freight trucking barely exceeds $700 billion annually. Local trucking industries are often inefficient and fragmented.

  • What I Didn’t Know About Truck Drivers.

    I’ve worked in the office at Canada Cartage for a few years now but recently decided to take our truck driver orientation/training program to gain some more insight into Canada Cartage and our various safety procedures and requirements.
