Cloud computing has transformed companies from different segments. In the specific case of the transport sector , the benefits already achieved with the use of the Internet have been enhanced with cloud computing . The use of this technology increased the flow of fleet information and helped in the strategic management of companies.

In the field of transport and logistics, competition is tremendous, so it is not surprising that it is essential to have a system in a highly efficient computational environment, with all the necessary information to transport cargo and passengers, safely, at the right time. , according to the legislation, with high levels of quality and low cost.

Solving critical problems in the transportation sector

Information about travel time and delays, vehicle security and maintenance are managed by various departments with the need to create detailed reports. This means that there are many people within a company analyzing large amounts of data, in many cases, without storing it in a central location.

Imagine the operational and strategic gain if all members of the company could have access to all that same information, at any moment of the day. The cloud makes this possible.

With technology resources, businesses can save money during seasonal peaks. For example, the company can increase the flow of the bus fleet according to peak hours or direct new routes due to traffic problems. You can also add warehouse workers during holidays; they might just ramp up their infrastructure for a month or two to handle high demand in certain situations.

For this, there are cloud-compatible applications that extract data directly from specific devices, such as GPS, and store it in a central cloud database, allowing users to quickly and easily access information. This can lead to quick adjustments by management if needed, which ensures better customer service across the enterprise.

It is also possible with the use of the cloud to reduce the time spent by the IT department for troubleshooting, corrections and implementation of new solutions.

How Cloud Computing has Benefited the Passenger and Cargo Transport Industry

To meet all the requirements in the transport sector, a lot of data needs to be processed. Any limitation in IT capacity and performance is a potential risk for businesses. Therefore, it is a priority to be able to process and transform all the information that is needed. That's where cloud computing comes in.

Let's look at some of the main benefits that the use of cloud computing presents to the transport sector:

  • High availability of hardware and software, reducing operational impacts

  • Balancing the technology structure according to demand, thus giving you the necessary scalability and flexibility

  • Access to always up-to-date technology; used hardware or software do not become obsolete

  • Reduced technology investment cost

  • High storage capacity and data processing

Today, cloud applications are increasingly important for supply chain management and passenger transport. Customers are demanding more and more quality and regulation is stricter than ever. An increasing number of companies are deploying cloud applications primarily because they are cost-effective and strategic.
