Disruptive Innovation? Web-based, smartphone-based auto dispatch system.

This looks like a pretty good app for carriers working dealer transfers.  Would be refreshing to see a disruptive innovation break the stranglehold Central Dispatch has right now.

Diamond Weave Carhauler Straps

Have you heard about the blue diamond weave carhauler straps?  Woven in the U.S. and stitched in the U.S., these are the latest innovation in strap technology.  If you look at the top picture, you can see the patented weave pattern.  The edges have a different "curled-over" weave that locks the yarns down as tightly as possible.  The idea here is that a flatter, tighter weave may help prevent premature fraying from loose yarns catching on metal edges. 

It's too early to say how much longer these will last than normally woven straps, but the hope is that this new diamond pattern will give long-lasting service.  For more information on cost and availability, please check them out here at Autohauler Supply.
