2014 ITS World Congress

--()--First Advantage:

   

WHO:

At the 2014 World Congress on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), Dan Filby, President of Transportation Services will speak to industry leaders about utilizing electronic information as a powerful tool for their operations.
 

WHAT:

The World Congress on ITS is hosted annually by the Intelligent Transportation Society of America. At the congress, more than 10,000 transportation industry leaders will present on the latest ITS applications around the globe.
 

WHERE:

The World Congress will be held at the Cobo Hall in Detroit, Michigan.
 

WHEN:

Dan Filby will present Sept. 8 at the 3–4:30 p.m. session of the Sept. 7–11 congress.
 

WHY:

The explosion of electronic information in the trucking industry gives transportation officials and providers around the globe an important way to increase truck utilization and efficiency. The changes that First Advantage can spur do add up, particularly as trucking company margins remain lean.
 
“Big Data holds an unbelievable potential to help transportation providers throughout the supply chain improve efficiency and safety, bolster asset performance and enhance profitability,” says Filby. “However, because complex data analysis is a unique niche, data needs interpretation before transportation providers will realize its benefit.”
