Continued investment in the product while listening closely to customer feedback promises continued value adds.” – VP, Systems Integration in the transportation industry

“As an early mover in developing and delivering advanced technology to our customers, MercuryGate will continue to build upon our position to innovate and extend our tomorrow-level transportation capabilities in 2024 and beyond,” said Juliano. “Areas of focus range from machine learning and data analytics that deliver even more actionable intelligence to sustainability features and functions that further reduce empty miles and carbon footprint.”
