Big Data Keeps on Truckin'

Many of the early success stories with Big Data came from logistics companies.

For example, UPS used sensor data to improve maintenance and fuel efficiency back in 2010. In 2011, CIO.com ran a story about U.S. Xpress, which used Big Data and sensors to save about $6 million a year across its fleet.

So it really shouldn’t be surprising that an intriguing new Big Data business intelligence platform would be unveiled at a recent American Trucking Associations’ executive summit.
