THE POINT: Learn from your data and use it to minimize risk.
TRUCKING RISK…LEARN FROM THE DATA
Trucking Data. Every day you are drinking from the fire hose of data coming off that information system we call “a truck”. However, that data can be invaluable, particularly if you learn from it and act on it to reduce risk.
Nobody has more data than Lytx, the DriveCam people. Billions of miles. Whether you are of the generations of Carl Sagan or the HBO series, “billions” is a lot.
Lytx culled that data for the benefit of trucking to let you know the “when”, “what”, and “where” of increased risk based on that, you got it, data.
You can read the Lytx 2020 “State of Data” at https://www.lytx.com/en-us/news-events/press-release/2021/lytx-2020-state-of-the-data Kind of like the “State of the Union”, but without half the audience standing up to applaud on cue.
