3 Common Mistakes to Avoid
When Taking Your Brokerage Digital
The switch from paper to digital, and manual labor to automation, requires the right solution matched with a seamless transition.
We’ve been in business since 1991 helping freight brokers and carriers implement the latest tech that keeps the supply chain thriving…And to help guide you, we put together the three most common mistakes freight brokers make during their digital transitions. Here are three things to avoid:
1. Designing Your Own App
Most brokerages underestimate the cost and time involved in launching a mobile app. Plus, post-launch maintenance like security, support, and updates are ongoing and can require major costs.

Drivewyze’s Trucker Movie
For those with a subscription to Netflix, Hulu, or some other video streaming platform, there’s a good chance you’ve spent a good chunk of time aimlessly scrolling through the platform looking for something entertaining to watch. We’ve all been there.

It’s never a bad time to throw on an old classic trucker film – back when truck drivers were portrayed as ‘cowboys’ of the road. Or, in many of the films below, out to be the villain. A few years ago, we put together a list of some of our favorite trucker films – and we thought it was about time to expand that list. Here are some more movies worth checking out…
