Utilizing Tracking to Respond to the Port Delays


With port delays nearly doubling year-over-year, and transportation of assets taking longer across the board, industry leaders are leveraging smarter asset tracking to respond.

With the chaotic state of transportation across the nation, knowing when your assets will arrive and when they need to depart has become mission critical to better business planning. Utilizing the best end-to-end point management system available is how you can place your operation a step above the rest.

Taking the mystery out of asset tracking is the best way to know how to deploy your workforce at the right time and at the right place. Fortunately, Zebra has developed a host of devices and applications to improve asset visibility.
