The trucking industry is currently reliant on outdated tech
fraught with paper trails, long wait times, and numerous middlemen
that take advantage of independent truckers by pitting them in
race-to-the-bottom competitions for loads.
Rick Burnett is the CEO and founder of LaneAxis, a virtual freight management system that seeks to disrupt the shipping industry by directly connecting shipper and carriers via a proprietary blockchain network.
LaneAxis wants to use blockchain to eliminate these inefficiencies and empower truckers to take control of their industry. Rick has envisioned a unique deployment of Smart Contracts, GPS IoT tracking, and a mobile app that come together to help meet increased demands for shipping and lessen the effects of the current driver shortage.
On today's tech podcast, we also discuss LaneAxis features such as route optimization, freight quality assurance, driver safety logs, and weather alerts.
