On the Move Systems (OMVS) says it remains “bullish on the long-term growth prospects for its upcoming ‘Uber-for-Trucking’ shared economy platform following one industry pundit’s bold prediction on how the continued rise of 3D printing will alter the freight business in OMVS’s favor.”
“It’s a daring prediction, and one that plays directly into our long-term research and due diligence,” the company said.
According to the company, a trucking analyst has said 3D printing’s rapid climb will enable manufacturers to source more of their materials closer to the factory, making national truckers more dependent on local freight networks to deliver materials.
“To thrive in this coming era, the industry watcher said, long-haul carriers are going to have to continually build and strengthen their networks with smaller, independent truckers,” the company said. “This predicted scenario holds great promise for OMVS, which has been busy building a revolutionary shared economy business model that will enable these national trucking firms to do exactly that, online and on demand.”
“It’s a daring prediction, and one that plays directly into our long-term research and due diligence,” OMVS CEO and president Robert Wilson said. “Our revolutionary Uber-for-Trucking platform can help long-haul carriers in building their local networks and aid local truckers in strengthening ties to long-haul carriers wanting access to their market. Those using our service will be in a great position to succeed when this forecast comes to pass. And OMVS will be in a great position to benefit from strong revenues from these users.”
Trucking companies continue to turn to technology in an effort to wring every last dollar of profit from their vehicles. OMVS’s upcoming platform will enable truckers to not only build networks, but maximize equipment utilization, recruit drivers and effectively price their services.
