The start of the New Year is the perfect time to reflect on the past year and set goals for the upcoming year. As an intermodal transportation professional, it's essential to focus on improving your work performance and taking care of yourself along the way. There are three critical New Year's resolutions that you should implement to help you become even better at your job and thus increase the potential for pay raises, additional jobs, and promotions.

Eat Healthy

One of the most important habits that any individual working in the transportation industry should focus on is developing healthy eating habits. While on the road or working long hours, it's easy to grab a quick meal or eat unhealthy snacks to keep you going. However, this can negatively impact your health and overall performance. Pack your meals when on a long haul, or always have healthy snacks easily available during your workday. Fruits, nuts, and veggies are always a great choice!

Stay on Schedule

As an intermodal transportation professional, your job heavily depends on time and deadlines. Being punctual is critical to maintaining a solid reputation and keeping your clients happy. If you don’t already, start planning your schedule beforehand and always leave some margin for unforeseen circumstances, such as traffic, breakdowns, or weather conditions. Using digital resources for planning and scheduling, such as the Port24 platform, will help you stay organized and on track.

Utilize Available Technology

The transportation industry experiences rapid technological advancements, some of which can help streamline your work processes and improve performance efficiency. Port24's proprietary technology allows drivers to maximize their time and resources as best as possible. This means fuel efficiency, scheduling, faster payouts, and storage of credentials in one place, allowing for more efficient and speedier hiring for jobs.

Taking care of yourself is about more than just improving your work schedule and techniques. It's equally important to take care of yourself, physically and mentally. Taking breaks during your workday, getting enough sleep, and engaging in physical activity are all great ways to ensure a balanced work-life relationship. Moreover, take time to reflect on your decision-making and problem-solving approach on the job, as a high-stress job such as transportation can have a far-reaching impact on your mental health.

To sum it up, the New Year is an excellent time for intermodal transportation professionals to reflect and set goals that can help enhance work performance and personal well-being. Prioritize healthy eating habits, be punctual, stay updated with technology trends, and take care of yourself to maintain a healthy work relationship and positive job outcome. By following these tips and incorporating them into your daily routine, you can work towards becoming a healthier and more efficient intermodal transportation professional. Here's to a productive and healthy New Year!
