3 things that reduce mobile workforce productivity

3 things that reduce mobile workforce productivity

While the concept of a mobile workforce may seem relatively new, it can be traced back to 1972 when Jack Nilles, a former rocket scientist, invented telecommuting by running a complex NASA communication project fully remote. Exactly 50 years later, working offsite has grown into the new normal – about 80% of the workers around the world are referred to as deskless employees. The individuals making up the deskless workforce are mostly operating in such industries as construction, transportation, retail, healthcare, and other fields. Over the years, the number of remote workers has grown rapidly, therefore, companies must recognize situations that can negatively impact their mobile workforce productivity, as well as learn how to avoid them.
Reducing food waste during transportation: How can telematics help?

Reducing food waste during transportation: How can telematics help?

Food waste during transportation is a serious issue because, despite the fact that the world produces more than enough food to feed everyone, around 800 million people go to bed on an empty stomach every night. That’s according to research conducted by the Food and Agriculture Organization. While poverty, climate change and international conflicts are among the greatest contributors to hunger in the world, nearly one-third of the food produced globally simply goes to waste due to inadequate storage conditions and supply chain inefficiencies. While it’s hard to tell exactly how much food is wasted during transportation, it certainly is an area wirth improving. Therefore, this article explains how the use of telematics can help freight companies better deliver temperature-sensitive products to their retail destinations and reduce food loss during transportation.
