IT Consulting

Josh at Certified Freight Logistics (CFL) with Big Rig Mentor Mike

By Josh Erdman, IT Pro

I’m sitting behind the wheel of a big rig. The odometer reads an incredible 608,000 miles. Normally when I visit CFL it is an IT Consultant checking in on their network, but not today. Today I am learning about what it takes to be a truck driver with my big rig mentor, Mike, who has been in the freight industry for over 20 years. Mike frequently talks about his boys – he has two sons and has informally adopted several more. During our time together you can quickly tell that his heart is as big as his truck!

Examples include smart thermostats like Nest, refrigerators with internal cameras that show remote users their contents to help with shopping, ovens that preheat remotely via internet connectivity, lighting systems, security cameras, timers, and garage doors. Soon IoT devices will outnumber people.
