Watch the episode

On the episode you’ll hear:

  • How should the industry define digital transformation? Is that a term that’s been used too often in the supply chain over the last 12 months and people just gloss over it? How can we get practitioners to really embrace the idea of digital transformation?
  • How does Comdata see drivers gravitating towards technology use and what are the core benefits?
  • Are payments the next big thing in transportation? Is factoring on the way out? Why or why not?
  • What are some of the challenges that supply chain professionals face when adding on NEW technologies and then making them interoperable with the technology they have in place and how can they see success? Is it hiring a team of IT folks? Is it incumbent on the tech provider? 
  • What’s next for the freight industry around digital transformation? What does tech adoption look like over the next 12 months and what will the primary focus be for the industry in using technology?
