Learn How Your Brokerage Can Succeed in the New World of Digital Freight Management — at CSCMP’s EDGE 2019

The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) is hosting its EDGE Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition September 15-18 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif. Trucker Tools will be in attendance at this premier industry event that includes more than 30 hours of educational content, 150+ exhibitors and more than 25 hours of networking with more than 3,000 supply chain management professionals.

Brokers and third-party logistics providers attend CSCMP’s annual EDGE conference and exhibition to learn about the latest supply chain developments and innovations. Trucker Tools is thrilled to bring its intelligent supply chain solutions to attendees who are looking for opportunities to increase efficiency, strengthen relationships with shippers and carriers, and leverage technology to increase revenue.

Learn How Trucker Tools’ Smart Capacity Can Increase Freight Visibility and Operational Efficiency for Your Brokerage

CSCMP’s EDGE Supply Chain Exchange Exhibition is where supply chain professionals can see the latest technological innovations in supply chain management in action. The exhibition provides attendees with the opportunity to talk one-on-one with technical experts, ask specific questions and experience first-hand how cutting-edge solutions can solve a wide range of supply chain challenges.

Visit Trucker Tools’ exhibition booth #400 to see a live demonstration of our Smart Capacity carrier relationship and capacity management platform. When used with Trucker Tools’ free mobile driver app, Smart Capacity can provide supply chain managers with continuous, start-to-finish freight visibility that is highly accurate and reliable. Leveraging the GPS technology native to the trucker’s smartphone and Trucker Tools’ driver app, brokers and third-party logistics providers can view a truck’s real-time location and progress in the Smart Capacity interface. Location information is updated every five minutes to ensure continuous visibility.

Carrier adoption of Trucker Tools’ driver app typically outpaces that of other tracking technologies because of the added value it brings to carriers in their daily operations. Increased adoption translates into higher tracking compliance success, i.e. more loads tracked for brokers. The industry’s average tracking compliance success rate is approximately 30 percent. The tracking compliance success rate for Trucker Tools’ load tracking solution averages between 70 and 90 percent or higher. Brokers and 3PLs who use Smart Capacity often can reduce the number of check-calls they make for each load, which ultimately improves efficiency.

At Trucker Tools’ live demo, you’ll also learn how Smart Capacity’s predictive load matching can simplify and streamline capacity searches. Trucker Tools’ Smart Capacity utilizes powerful algorithms and workflows that optimize finding the best carrier for each load. You can search for capacity across preferred networks and do so confidentially. When you book a load with a carrier in Smart Capacity, you also can search for available reload opportunities with ease, thereby increasing efficiency and building relationships with preferred carriers.

Position Your Brokerage for Success with Technology Partnerships, Best Practices

If you’re a freight broker or 3PL and you feel like you’re under attack from market disruptors at every turn, be sure to attend “Turn the Digital Brokerage Revolution to Your Advantage: Real-World Strategies for Success.” This educational session will feature Trucker Tools’ Founder/CEO Prasad Gollapalli, England Logistics’ VP of Brokerage Services Shaun Beardall, Gartner’s Research VP Bart De Muynck and Choptank Transport’s President/CEO Geoff Turner.

In this session, our panel of presenters will share insights and best practices for brokers who wish to engage with new digital freight platforms and form collaborative partnerships with technology providers.
