WhatsApp, la plataforma de mensajería instantánea adquirida por Facebook en 2014, ha incrementado el número de usuarios en los últimos 4 años. A finales de 2017, la plataforma anunció la incorporación de ‘WhatsApp Business’, para que las empresas medianas o pequeñas pudieran comunicarse de mejor manera con sus consumidores.

Technology in recent times has taken many previously non-automated jobs in the industrial world, now according to reports, there are plans to launch the first automated truck.

Elon Musk is no stranger to groundbreaking innovations. Through companies like PayPal, Tesla, and Space X, the entrepreneur has aimed to revolutionize the payment, automotive, and space travel industries, respectively. And he doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon. Recently Musk announced that Tesla has its sights set on trucking.
In a conference held close to Space X’s headquarters, Musk unveiled the new Tesla Semi, an all-electric truck. If it looks radically different than a standard semi-trailer truck, it’s because it is. It has no big motor, no transmission, and its cabin seems like it was made for a spaceship.

Quickload is in a constant state of innovation. We work hand in hand with shippers, trucking companies, and many other logistics professionals to keep our platform up to date with the industry and its needs. This is precisely how Container Services was born.
This week we’re very excited to finally launch Container Services, a new feature within our app that gives shippers more flexibility when it comes to selecting the number, size, and type of containers they need to complete their shipment. This process makes it easier for shippers to find carriers with the necessary permits and equipment to pick up or drop off containers at the Port of Miami and the Port of Everglades. It’s definitely a step forward in making Quickload a full-freight solution for all of your shipping needs.
Summer brings higher temperatures everywhere, especially inside a truck trailer. Did you know that the inside of a truck trailer that is not temperature-controlled can be over 30 ˚F higher than the temperature outside? So, for example, if it’s 90 ˚F here in Miami, the temperature inside a container can climb up to a scorching 120 ˚F.
It’s no wonder then that summer brings an increased demand for refrigerated trailers (also known in the industry as “reefers”) that keep temperatures cold and steady. This not only applies to shippers of highly perishable cargo such as produce who pretty much rely on refrigerated containers year-long. If you ship pharmaceuticals, chemicals, or any kind of cargo that can be damaged by fluctuations in temperature, refrigerated containers can be a must, especially in this time of the year, to ensure your shipment reaches its destination safely. Even cargo that can usually be transported in a dry van during cooler months can benefit from temperature control during the summer.
