What is The Technology Used In Auto Transport?

The technology that's being utilized in auto transport is rapidly advancing. We're not even referring to the safety features that are constantly being updated or even the refining of transportation types, such as enclosed transport. Instead, we're talking about the technology that auto transport brokers and carriers use to conduct their operations effectively so that you, the customer, can benefit.

To give you a "behind the scenes" look into the technology of auto transport, check out the following list of technology that is being utilized:

Smartphones and Tablets

You may be thinking that including smartphones on this list is archaic, since seemingly everyone has a smartphone these days. But in actuality, it took a long time for many auto transport companies to adopt the use of smartphones, as well as tablets, in terms of how it assist the transport process.

Drivers, in particular, are the ones that are benefiting from the use of smartphones and tablets the most. They are able to seamlessly update the status of their current delivery, provide detailed GPS tracking, utilize GPS services to determine the best route to take, and to stay in contact with both the auto transport carrier and broker, as well as the customer, without much delay.

For the brokers and carriers themselves, this constant connectivity to the internet allows them to find new loads seemingly everywhere. Additionally, it allows the company's cloud or web-based management system to be connected to the portable device, further improving the efficiency of the whole process.

Cloud-Based Management Systems

This technology ties in with smartphones and tablets, but the best transport companies utilize database management systems that can be accessed anywhere. With cloud technology growing in popularity and becoming the standard, its useful for allowing drivers access to real-time instructions and updates from the brokers and carriers, not to mention to input accurate information about the amount of vehicles that are being transported and both pick-up and delivery confirmation.

Brokers, for example, utilize this technology to make the whole shipping process faster for consumers, allowing for contact to be made with the carriers at much faster rates. Alert systems can be set up in which last minute changes can easily be handled, rather than delay the whole process as they used to do in the past.

Fuel Technology

Fuel Technology

Fuel technology has advanced significantly, which allows for many of the transportation trucks to get significantly more mileage per gallon. In addition, various alternative energies are starting to be utilized, such as hybrid transport vehicles. Lower fuel costs, especially with diesel fuel costing a great deal, translates into cost savings for the consumers.

Furthermore, better fuel efficiency leads to the company becoming more "green" and decreasing their carbon footprint.

Lightweight Materials

There have been significant advancements made in the manufacturing of transportation parts and the cars themselves that use fiberglass technology. This results in alloys that are extremely strong, yet also are lightweight.

This accentuates the fuel efficiency of auto transport companies, meaning that additional cost savings can arise, not to mention faster delivery times.

You can be confident that future technologies will continue to be quickly adapted by auto transport companies since better technology equals better efficiency which leads to a better overall service provided to you, the consumer.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
