Running a logistics business is more than picking up freight, driving and delivering it; When you have ten or twenty trucks, there's a lot more work to be done.
Ideally, you want drivers to arrive just in time to pick up the load and arrive on time at the destination. You can do that if you map loads.
It is also critical to communicate the estimated arrival times to the shipping and receiving docks. At a busy loading dock, every minute counts. You don’t want your driver to arrive early and wait at the dock. Neither do you want to be late, and get charged for late charges and storage.
Any dispatcher or freight broker would ask the following questions on a daily basis. Where are my drivers in relation to their pickup and delivery appointments? Are they stuck in traffic? Do I have an ETA from each driver? Are there any other factors to account for? Is the trailer running empty?
It is quite possible to get all this information by having someone call the drivers or brokers. Even though your team is able to get the update once, it becomes outdated quickly as the conditions change.
Imagine seeing all your loads and drivers on a map. Have a bird's eye view of all your trucks on a single map with real-time updates. Could you envision seeing all your assets on a map without having to call a driver or broker?
Having a visual map of your loads not only increases your efficiency but also reduces your cost of operation. Location data is aggregated without any manual intervention from the dispatchers, drivers or brokers.
FreightPrint, routing transportation software, offers multiple views of maps where you can map loads, as well as see all of your loads and their statuses on one page. Get driver information, load information, estimated arrival times, proof of delivery information, bill of lading details, and customer details, all by looking at the map.
Need to get an update every 5 minutes or every 30 minutes? No problem. We can adjust the time interval to fit your needs.
Setting up your company to use FreightPrint and to map loads is very easy. Most of our customers are up and running in a matter of minutes.
