Vorto, UChain create platforms to decrease driver downtime

February 23, 2022

The trucking industry has been carrying a significant portion of blame for supply-chain issues that continue to affect stock on American shelves, but industry experts say a truck driver shortage isn’t one of the underlying causes.

Priyesh Ranjan, CEO of Vorto, which recently launched an app called 5F that aims to minimize driver downtime, among other things, said there is no driver shortage, just poor driver utilization that has resulted in low pay and inconsistent work, causing drivers to flee the industry.
