The increasing electronic content of over-the-road trucks and the evolution of digital and wireless functionality that has ensued in the last decade have provided shippers and their logistics partners with the ability to improve asset utilization and pick-up and delivery (gate-in/gate-out times) precision. The logistics sector is now contemplating the next generation of onboard data collection and operational optimization. One such anticipated development is vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication. In the U.S. the technology is being pushed by regulators as a way to reduce accidents. But for commercial shippers, the value of V2V is viewed in terms of its ability to lower fuel costs and improve operating efficiencies. This report examines the programs and players that are driving this important logistics segment.
