Powerful Real-Time Visibility You Can Depend Upon
When shippers have visibility into their supply chains, they can increase customer satisfaction, reduce operating costs and address disruptions in real-time. It’s no wonder then that in survey after survey, shippers have indicated that real-time freight visibility is a top priority. Since the global COVID-19 pandemic began, the urgency around real-time load tracking certainly hasn’t dissipated. In fact, it’s become even a higher priority for shippers. Many shippers now use visibility consistency and compliance rates to determine which freight brokers, logistics providers and carriers they’ll use to move their freight.
Trucker Tools’ Smart Capacity real-time load tracking leverages the GPS technology in the driver’s smart phone and the popular Trucker Tools driver app to provide you with real-time load location updates every five to 15 minutes. The integration partnership with Dr. Dispatch allows you to view this visibility data directly in the TMS. Freight brokers and 3PLs that implement Smart Capacity often are able to meet and even surpass shipper visibility minimums. They also typically are able to reduce check calls, increase operational efficiency, and provide a higher level of service to their customers and carriers as a result.
Increase Productivity, Capacity with Trucker Tools’ Digital Freight Matching
Smart Capacity’s digital freight matching technology streamlines your process for covering loads. When you search for trucks with Smart Capacity, you can search by lane, equipment type, carrier name, date/time, weight and other variables. The search results that you get from a Smart Capacity search only include those carriers that are likely to have the type of capacity when and where you need it. In contrast to load boards, Smart Capacity’s search results are based on the real-time location of trucks and real-world load/truck bookings. Once you find the truck you need for a given load in Smart Capacity, you can call the carrier, knowing already that the carrier likely has the capacity you need. With Smart Capacity, you make fewer cold calls to carriers and can cover loads with greater efficiency. The integration partnership with Dr. Dispatch allows you to search Smart Capacity for trucks from within the TMS.
To date, the Trucker Tools mobile app has been downloaded by more than 1.5 million owner operators and small to mid-sized carriers. When you need to go outside your carrier network and find additional capacity, you can tap into this massive network to do so. If your goal is to book recurring loads with certain high-performing carriers, you may set up your Smart Capacity searches to search for capacity from among a customized list of carriers. Predictive freight matching, which is included with Smart Capacity as well, gives insight into where trucks will be available in the future, allowing you to secure capacity before it’s posted publicly to load boards. All of these features can be accessed from within the Dr. Dispatch interface thanks to this integration partnership.
