Get the Most out of Every Mile

If you happen to be in the business of moving freight, you’re not a stranger to all of the complications and challenges that you’ve run into in this year alone. Within lockdowns taking place and people quarantining to promote health safety, consumers are ordering and demanding quick turnaround rates, a sense of zero tolerance for late deliveries and mistakes has been instilled. The average delivery worker has a lot on their shoulders as it is, and now with weight of expectations and increased demand looming on horizon, it’s almost impossible to succeed without the help of assistive devices. The linear routes of the past have been replaced with more complex random webs that are required to meet the delivery requirements of their customers.

Granting dispatchers with the ability to receive real-time information, throughout every stop of the trip can cut down on costs, while also hiking up the quality of service. They can track the location of each vehicle, the routes travelled, the number of hours logged, confirmation status of deliveries, the safety of various delivery loads, potential issues with the health of the mechanics, and so many more factors. At the same time, when the supply chain is productively flowing in a positive direction, drivers can capture signatures for proof of delivery & same-day invoicing, mileage for paperless regulatory compliance, photo proof of delivery, and the ability to scan barcodes on pallets and cases throughout the day.
