Whether you are a fleet manager or an owner-operator, your role is the decision maker for a company. The routing strategies you decide on, the scheduling system that you choose, even the services you pick to align with – it can all make or break the bottom line of your carrier business.
You are the CEO to your carrier company, and as the leader, you should know the tools available to you to make your operations run smoothly.
A TMS that does it all
If you are a fleet manager, getting a Transportation Management System will be one of the best things you do for your team. From document and photo management to keeping track of your trucks, you can spend less time on the phone and more time booking new loads.
Getting in with shippers and 3PLs as a preferred carrier is another smart decision. Once the shippers and 3PLs know you are trusted and do your job well, they can give you early access to loads and even their private load boards.
Shipwell has a load board in the platform that can be viewed by carriers when the owner gives them access. After that, carriers can see loads and bid on them or book instantly. We have a proprietary matching algorithm that allows carriers to get better matching loads faster.
Best of all, the Shipwell load board is free for carriers to use. Getting access is easy.
Opting for tracking
If you want to make your business visible to world-class shippers, you need to make their freight visible. Opting-in to real-time freight tracking systems can give added security and trust to shippers and will make your trucking company a priority in their eyes.
With Shipwell, you can be as hands-off as you want. We have automated check calls that use AI to understand human voices. If you have a smartphone, download our mobile app and track the shipment and check out details.
The most hands-free option is connecting your ELD to Shipwell. By doing that, Shipwell can show where your truck is on the map, and shippers and 3PLs can rest knowing their freight is on the way. Enjoy fewer check calls and more time focusing on running a great business.
Also, when drivers opt-in to Shipwell’s tracking for the entire shipment, they get free 72-hour Quick Pay. Getting that money in hand fast can boost business operations and help you make better financial decisions.
Instead of filing documents away in a filing cabinet or roll-top desk, store them digitally in the Shipwell platform.
Everything from BOLs, PODs, rate cons, even photographs of improperly loaded freight for insurance purposes.
Give you and your drivers’ visibility and access to the documents, so there are fewer discrepancies and more time getting loaded and on the road.
At the end of the day, you are in control of your trucks. The software solutions you implement for yourselves or your fleet will determine your bottom line. Shipwell will empower your business and connect and manage all of the freight logistics.
