Thanks to on-demand apps like Uber and Amazon, consumers expect a whole new level of service. They’re used to instantly accessing account history, customer service channels, and ordering capabilities. This demand has led savvy companies—B2C and B2B alike—to create or update their own apps, ensuring they are accessible and intuitive.

4 Transportation Technologies Poised to Have a Huge Impact on the Industry

Posted by Vertrax on Feb 28, 2020 4:22:04 PM

The trucking industry is rapidly advancing in terms of the technology being developed and tested. With each new year comes new technology with claims that it will “revolutionize the industry.” However, many of these technologies haven’t been fully vetted and will inevitably be abandoned or rolled back to development for many years.

ELD Mandate: Adoption Rate and Impact on Fleets

Posted by Vertrax on Oct 18, 2019 4:44:41 PM

The final deadline for complying with the ELD mandate is December 16th, 2019 — less than two months away. The mandate went into effect in December of 2017 and full enforcement began in April of 2018, so this is the final phase of implementation.

The mandate has already had a major impact on the industry, so we wanted to dive into the adoption rate of the technology as the deadline approaches, as well as uncover the impact it’s had on trucking fleets in terms of compliance, crashes, and driver behavior.

How Blockchain Can Benefit Midstream Oil and Gas

Posted by Vertrax on Oct 11, 2019 4:28:34 PM

In this series, we’re breaking down how blockchain can impact the complex segments of the oil and gas industry: upstream, midstream, and downstream.

Part 1: Upstream

As we mentioned in the first part of this series, there are three segments of the oil and gas industry: upstream, midstream, and downstream. Linking the upstream segment (exploration and production) and downstream segment (refinement), midstream oil and gas includes the transportation and storage of natural gas, crude oil, and refined products.

Due to the potential of environmental harm from improper storage or transportation, midstream oil and gas is one of the most regulated industries. And because oil and gas products have to pass through national, state, local, and municipal borders, they must successfully attain a wide variety of approvals. While midstream oil and gas businesses struggle to juggle regulations with their many partners, blockchain has the capability to mitigate these problems.

How Blockchain Can Transform Upstream Oil and Gas

Posted by Vertrax on Sep 27, 2019 4:14:26 PM

In this series, we’re breaking down how blockchain can impact the complex segments of the oil and gas industry: upstream, midstream, and downstream.

There are three main sectors in the oil and gas industry: upstream, midstream, and downstream. These categories denote where the relevant resource is in the process of traveling from underground reservoirs to its final destination, whether that be in the tank of a car or a gas stove in an apartment. For this initial installment in the series, we’ll explore blockchain’s use in upstream oil and gas.

Possibly the most complex part of the oil and gas industry — and definitely one of the most technology-heavy — upstream oil and gas refers to both the search for natural resources and their extraction. Upstream oil and gas is also known as exploration and production (E&P).
