DSV Tests Real-Time Truckload Tracking at the Dallas Ultra-Marathon


DSV’s North American Road division has been focused on delivering a product that provides real-time truckload visibility, and we were recently able to test the functionality in a fun and unexpected way. We are on an exciting journey to provide visibility to you and your customer!

DSV Tests Real-Time Truckload Tracking at the Dallas Ultra-Marathon

We have partnered with several vendors who will enable us to display load visibility in VFT, visibility which can be passed on to our clients. We are currently testing various tracking methods we’ll be rolling out in the future.

As part of that testing, our Director of Business Change Management, Xander Swart, tracked himself during the recent Dallas Ultra-Marathon as a proof of concept.Click here to see Xander's run.

This functionality is currently powered by project44, but soon you will have access to a map and the ability to share a similar link directly from VFT. We hope this generates some excitement for our customers as we strive to provide best-in-class technological updates.
