It is no secret that your customers want to know where their shipment is. Whether it is an order for paper towels or a pallet of potatoes, shipment tracking has become a quintessential function of logistics operations. However, most shippers rely on manual check calls and other complex methods to provide tracking details to your customers.
It not only takes more time but creates room for error. So, what you need is shipment tracking software. This software enables you to track and trace shipments and gives additional features, like proof of delivery documents or the option to print shipping labels from one app.
If you decided it's time for less manual work, check out what benefits shipment tracking software can bring to your company.
Many transportation management systems (TMS) that offer track and trace functionality still depend on manual processes. They either ping the driver's phone or send tracking links to be updated by the drivers manually. It also costs shippers extra to add tracking services to their TMS providers.
Imagine tracking every load you dispatch with any carrier without doing any extra work. Indeed, the word FreightPrint was coined to capture the meaning: “it is your freight’s footprint.” Every load can be tracked and traced in real time or at regular intervals anywhere in the supply chain. FreightPrint also captures several statuses throughout the order delivery, such as dispatched, driver assigned, loaded, unloaded, delivered, invoiced, paid etc.
So, your customers can find out where their shipment is at any given moment post purchase, but you can also print shipping labels and check the status of the shipment any time you need to.
Eliminate unnecessary work with the best shipment tracking software. Let's see what it offers.

If you have multiple trucks and drivers hauling loads, you know how important it is to track the status of each truck. Some dispatchers still track trucks on a whiteboard, with magnetic labels, or post-it notes. Others use complex spreadsheets and track manually. There is one problem with these solutions - they have to be maintained manually by a person, and don't scale.
