Wireless networking applications in trucking have yielded significant increases in productivity. The economic value of many applications of Information Technology (IT) rest on the same principles: information improves decision making, and better systems of communication enable people to implement those decisions more efficiently.

Information technology can improve productivity by improving such decisions.
