The title of this post is a common question asked in the Information Governance arena.
“Freight Tracker Adds Funding In Hot Market,” The Wall Street Journal, February 21, 2018 B4. Expansion at company that tracks where shipments are and when they will arrive.
Clearly, this information on a real-time basis is valuable to shippers and customers. Is there a difference between the value of the information (where the shipment is) and who owns that information? Or is it just who can profit from collecting and reporting the information? Who would have thought an entrepreneur would monetize this, rather than the companies handling the shipments? Did the shipping companies not realize the value of an asset they had?
