It was only a year or so ago that the World stopped spinning, thanks to COVID-19. The pandemic hit all parts of the world. Some markets suffered a heavy blow. Others ceased to exist anyway. That said, the trucking industry is a maverick in that case. They have been operating under challenges a-plenty, so when the supply chain became more crucial than ever? Truckers have been pushing to make life continue happening for front-line workers. This would help drivers navigate the shifting landscape of health and safety protocols. At the onset of the pandemic, there would be plenty of supply chain centers and warehouses as well that would adopt strict policies. These policies would limit in-person interactions. Furthermore, there would be plenty of other changes for inbound and outbound logistics processes.
The industry, would therefore, turn to technology to help them out in this time of need. In-cab transportation management suddenly would skyrocket into prominence. There would be no question about it as fleets looked to incorporate modern-payment platforms. They had to prepare for all the dangers that the pandemic had begun to present in the age of digital financial tech. There was also a need for remote payment technology even before the pandemic started. They had been gaining momentum, due in part to fraud-detection features. COVID-19 brought in safety demands and also prepared larger emphases on contactless methods of pay.
Financial technology adoption is rampant throughout the industry. These fleets can better suit themselves to hold on in spite of emergency situations. There would be paper documents that may or may not threaten business continuity should they render themselves incapable of shifting to a virtual setting ever so easily. Nowadays, carriers are digitizing holdouts in their businesses, in order to limit interactions for either warehouse workers or in-store greeters.
