When we think about companies that need to protect their data, we often think of financial institutions, schools, government agencies and others that retain top-secret or personally identifiable information (PII). Trucking companies are not top of mind; however, in an article in Heavy Duty Trucking magazine on January 7 titled “Under Lock and Key: Protecting Your Data”, you will see that data protection is a challenge facing all types of organizations in every industry.
Information technology has become essential for businesses to automate their processes and become more efficient. It is no different in the trucking industry. Data has become a critical asset for managing fleets and enabling customers to know the status of their deliveries.
The Heavy Duty Trucking article uses Celadon Trucking Services, a DSC customer, as an example. Celadon chose DSC/HA to ensure the availability of its data and to reduce the cost of handling this important function in-house. You don’t have to be in the transportation industry to relate to this article, so check it out.
