Carriers have a lot on their plate. Coordinating between shippers and brokers, ensuring their loads get delivered on time, and managing operations on the road are a daily occurrence.
At Shipwell, we’re here to empower carriers with tools and features that solve real-world challenges they face everyday.
Providing real-time tracking on every load ensures visibility to fleet managers, dispatchers, shippers, and brokers.
How can carriers achieve high-level transparency without sacrificing time or attention to the road?
In addition, how can drivers benefit from providing tracking, and get paid faster?
Here are four ways carriers can activate real-time tracking back to the Shipwell platform for the ultimate visibility into their loads.
1. ELD Integrations
Shipwell partners with the top ELD providers in America to cover over half a million trucks. When you hook up your ELD with Shipwell, every load is tracked, including detailed information about your HOS.
Plus: When you integrate your ELD and also utilize the Shipwell mobile app (more on that below), drivers get paid in just three days and we’ll automatically pay your detention.
This ensures shippers and brokers know exactly where their freight is, plus, are aware of your HOS to stay compliant with the ELD Mandate.
Check out our ELD integrations here. If we already support your ELD provider, it’s possible your integration is as easy as a simple consent approval via email from you.
2. Shipwell Mobile App
- Receive notifications for new loads
- Electronically sign BOLs
- Take photos of improperly loaded freight
- Automatically upload freight documents on delivery
- Dispatch your fleet and know where they are
Our mobile app ties directly into our web platform, aligning your efforts on the road into visible updates for shippers and brokers.
3. Cell-based Tracking
When shippers and brokers book a load with you via Shipwell, they can also request cell-based tracking on your load.
This simple, yet effective, method of tracking uses your cell phone location to provide real-time tracking back to the Shipwell platform.
4. New: Automated Check Calls
We’re excited to unveil this brand-new technology for our carriers in early 2019.
Using natural language processing, automated check calls empower drivers to provide quick updates over the phone. A call made to a driver will request their location. A driver can respond over the phone with simple information, and that’s it!
Then, Shipwell technology captures a driver’s response within the platform, the load’s timeline is automatically updated as needed, and drivers can get back to the road.
In addition, these calls work on any phone, anywhere, any time.
Watch how it works below:
We’ll be pushing this feature to all Shipwell users early next year.
Let’s build the future of freight together.
