Dude, where’s my stuff!? Talking about tracking with Ryan Rogers

TextLocate CEO joins the show to discuss how to make tracking simpler

In today’s episode, we talk about the challenges of tracking freight, and how we can change telephone calls into telematics updates. Our special guest is Ryan Rogers, CEO of freight location tracking startup TextLocate.

Is it possible to make this simpler?
