The freight shipping industry is undergoing massive change.
E-commerce has decreased the average haul length, customers expect swift last-mile delivery and freight volume exceeds truck capacity. Truck owner/operators and carriers need solutions that reduce costly “deadhead” miles driven with empty loads.
To adapt to rapid change, a leading North American trucking and transportation company needed to modernize its core operational systems and infrastructure. Building digital solutions to increase operational efficiency meant replacing on-premises infrastructure and waterfall development with scalable, cloud-based infrastructure, a modern technology stack and agile ways of working. The company engaged Cognizant to collaboratively build a modern cloud platform and introduce agile methodology to its developers.
