With their position in the supply chain, shippers have a unique set of needs. Goods need to be moved swiftly, safely, and timely. Whether a shipper needs a carrier to help accomplish their goals, or if they have a private fleet, utilizing rating, scheduling, and routing tools for business operations is vital.
With this information, shippers can:
- Verify miles quoted by carriers
- Understand comprehensive trip costs, including toll fees, to set a baseline for carrier bid analysis
- Capture exact vehicle locations and precise ETAs
- Create and share geofenced locations with specific entry and exit points
