Data Driven Technology to Share Massive Industry Insights and Fair Logistics Practices

Optimizing Supply Chain Communications with A Data Driven Technology Enterprise Ideally, the logistics industry and Big Data should be a perfect tandem. As a leader in transportation industry, we are constantly moving masses of goods thereby gathering and recording data sets that can be turned into information needed to support the decision making process. The information gathered can critically benefit the decision making process for many different industries, for instance – big data can help sectors such as – the medical industry, housing, agriculture, transportation, energy, and even retail stores. Intelligent Transportation Systems and Data Driven Technology   Integrating big data in freight management platforms to optimize your supply chain benefits :

  • Improve operational efficiency. With valuable insights big data can bring to the table for many companies, can help increase greater transparency in daily operations and automate reporting procedures. Optimizing resources allows information gathered to improve operational performance and process quality.
  • Increasing customer satisfaction.We realize that taking a data driven approach will improve customer experiences, increase customer loyalty and retention rate. We utilize big data to segment our customers and maximize communication features to have a better sense of what our clients want. In addition to having a customized strategic plan for each customer, our data driven team exploit their data history to improve their services and prevent forecasted issues.
  • Creation of innovative business models. A data driven technology enterprise can create many new sources of revenue streams utilizing massive amounts of data. We extracted detailed microeconomic insights from the information gathered in the distribution networks on the flow of goods to better analyze and predict any possible supply chain disruptions, monitor B2B and B2C transactions, and once again, create new and effective business models from the data analysis gleamed. 

Many companies aspire to become data driven enterprises but unless they undertake a data driven approach in their processes, only then – can they make fact-based business decisions. There’s a fine line between the two, and its vital to all Americans that these insights are shared and managed under fair and responsible logistics terms, ethics, and culture. Our international trade management team has become accustomed to the benefits data analytics has improved their day-to-day operations, when making more informative decisions. We learned to maximize the potential of big data to become one of the top performers in the industry. With the use of data driven technology to create differentiation strategies in the market and for conclusive decision making, JL Freight is most definitely aiming in becoming a world class, data-driven transparent logistics enterprise. [trx_infobox style=”success” closeable=”yes” icon=”icon-tumblr”]Share your comments and/or feedback with us on this article. 

Kratom a Schedule 1 Drug Proposals

Last month, the Drug Enforcement Administration announced its intent to categorize Kratom as a Schedule I substance, citing that 2016 saw an increase of seizures by law enforcement of the substance, more in the first half than it had seized in previous years. The DEA states on its website that it is abused for its opiate like effects. The DEA also said it was aware of 15 deaths related to Kratom between 2014 and 2016. 

What’s All the Fuss About Kratom?

The Controlled Substances Act (CSA) classifies drugs into five categories,  Schedule I substances, drugs, or chemicals are said to have “no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.” This is the most severe classification. Some substances in this category include LSD, weed, and heroin. In the less restrictive Schedule II category we can find drugs like cocaine and Oxycodone. Kratom is a medicinal plant in the same family as coffee, native to Southeast Asia consumed by thousands all over the world. It is used for many things such as pain relief, lowering blood sugar, easing migraines, and relieving the withdrawal symptoms of opiates. It can be chewed, crushed, smoked and taken in tea form among other ways. 

Kratom Schedule 1 Substance

Kratom Schedule 1 Drug

What’s Happening Now? There has already been opposition and protest from the public and members of congress to Kratom’s potential classification as a Schedule I drug and subsequent banning in the United States. If it goes into effect, the intended major change would halt medical research currently underway. Susaratea Majumdar, a chemist from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, says that Kratom, unlike morphine or Oxycontin, does not require greater doses to produce the same effects since the body does not build the same tolerance (Chen 2016). The attention to the classification of Kratom may bring forth some needed discussion about current classifications of by the CSA and the regulation exemption of substances like tobacco and alcohol that otherwise meet the requirements for a Schedule I classification. Will we classify Kratom in the most severe schedule possible, only to later recognize its medicinal properties? Or is this really a substance that must be banned immediately without pause for public discourse?

E-Logs Technology Aspires for Environmental Justice

Environmental Justice  

Commonly, low income areas bear the brunt of environmental issues. On February 11, 1994, President Bill Clinton signed Executive Order 12898, creating a federal Environmental Justice (EJ) program. The program addresses environmental issues in minority and low-income populations. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines environmental justice as, “The fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people … with respect to … environmental laws, regulations, and policies. According to the Clinton Administration, fair treatment means that “no group of people… should bear a disproportionate share of negative environmental consequences…” Environmental justice is all about being fair and giving everyone a seat at the table. With this in mind, E-Logs Technology has developed a sustainable method of detection that monitors and records emissions. Additionally, it determines emission levels in natural gas powered vehicles. Low cost sensors record a vehicle’s carbon dioxide emission levels. By better monitoring greenhouse gases, we provide better air quality for everyone. Consequently, our technology will promote environmental responsibility and justice.

Framework for Environmental Justice

The environmental justice framework is an attempt to uncover underlying issues that contribute to record-breaking pollution levels in industrial cities and overexploitation of our ecosystem. We believe all individuals and communities have the “right” to be protected from environmental deterioration. This will continue to be a predominant focus for E-Logs Technology, in addition to extra safety precautions and community health. Surely, achieving this vision will help vulnerable, environmentally burdened, and economically disadvantaged ecosystems become healthier, cleaner, and more sustainable. Also, by better understanding these explicit dangers, we can promote environmental justice. In light of never before seen pollution levels, don’t you think it’s time to do what we can to keep our earth clean? E-Logs wants to make that easy for you!
