Track and Trace Shipment Software

Your products are like your babies. They are priceless. After you’ve manufactured or assembled them, you need to send them to your end users. Getting them in pristine condition to your customers is very important to you. If it were possible, you would keep your eyes on them at all times until they reach their final customer destination. However, that’s not very realistic, is it?

As a commercial shipping customer, you have these basic needs:

  • Urgency to deliver to your customers on time what you’ve promised them
  • A strong desire to keep customers happy
  • Don’t keep customers waiting, as this can lose business for you

Luckily, when it comes to transporting your products, you and your customers can enjoy these basic needs and more by using something called shipping management software. When you use this software, you know what’s happening every step of the way with your precious cargo.

Basically, when you use a trucking company that uses shipping management software, also called load tracking software, you experience total shipment visibility. The tracking process uses virtual perimeters set up at arrival and departure locations on routes. When drivers enter or leave the designated spots, the load tracking software automatically updates the status of shipments.

Benefits of Shipping Management Software

When you choose a trucking company to transport your important products, it’s a sound idea to make sure their tracking software provides at least the following features:

  • Updates every hour
  • Alerts when drivers arrive at every stop
  • Determines if driver is on-time with ETA calculation
  • Reduces waiting, loading and unloading times at docks
  • Allows for reaction to delays or stoppages in real-time

You deserve peace of mind when you ship your product. Check into your trucking company’s shipping management software. That way, you’ll know what to tell customers when they ask about the true arrival date of their products.
