truck and driver data standardization
Currently, different standards for truck and driver data are used within the transport sector. As a result that there are many different data definitions, rules and data requests from each platform provider or company. This lack of standardization results in a lot of manual work, data inputs mistakes, different IT interfaces, complexity and extra costs.
Besides that, when sharing truck and driver data it is also important to consider which data can or cannot be shared. Moreover the consideration about how it can be shared in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) is important. Personal data need to be processed confidentially.
Besides, commercial sensitive truck data should be handled with respect for data ownership.
