Why Industry Average 30 Percent Tracking Compliance Success Isn’t Good Enough for Your Shippers — or Your Brokerage
In this blog, you’ll discover how you can do better than the industry average when it comes to freight visibility. Brokers and 3PLs who migrate to Trucker Tools’ load tracking platform typically achieve outstanding results. For example, Syfan Logistics used the Trucker Tools driver app and Smart Capacity platform to raise its average tracking compliance success rate to 84 percent, while reducing check-calls by 30 percent. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Shippers use KPIs to measure your effectiveness as a brokerage or logistics company. Many shippers make visibility KPIs a top priority and require that you provide visibility on at least 80 to 90 percent of their load volume. If you’re not meeting your shippers’ on-time KPIs with your current visibility solution, read this blog to learn how Trucker Tools’ visibility solution can help you meet or exceed the KPIs set by your shippers.
The results that LTI Delivers has achieved with Trucker Tools proves that you don’t need limitless resources, expensive infrastructure or a long timeline to increase the service that you provide to shippers as a brokerage. Read this blog to learn how LTI Delivers has found an ideal technology partner in Trucker Tools and reduced its check-calls by 40 percent.
