DIGITAL, GPS-BASED TRUCKLOAD VISIBILITY

As America’s oldest privately held freight brokerage, we have long prided ourselves in our track and trace procedures, thorough communication, and on-time pick-up and delivery performance. But, the dawn of the ELD mandate and the emergence of robust GPS-based visibility tools in trucking has opened new doors to connect with carriers.

We recognized the value that these tools could bring to our customers if deployed correctly and, in 2018, we launched our visibility initiative – with the goal of digitally tracking 100% of our truckload shipments. Why? Because we are committed to being the best partners and advisors for our customers and want to continue adding value to their businesses. Visibility brings data, which we can cut, dissect, and make adjustments accordingly – leading to better execution, customer service, and control of the work we do. Check out our journey to 100% digital, GPS-based visibility below.

Real-time visibility is just a start

Once we’re connected, we can improve scheduling and proactively alter appointment times to avoid delays, fines, and disappointment. We can also use the increased visibility and technology to avoid warehouse overtime and mitigate issues, such as temperature excursions and security breaches, as they arise. But, first, you have to have the connection — and we’ve made it.
“Gone are the days of tracking freight through a game of ‘whisper down the lane.’ By digitally connecting to our diverse carrier base, we offer our customers real-time location updates, predictive data, and better insights into their businesses. We’re finding savings, identifying costly behaviors and trends, and improving lane performance.” – Jeff Tucker, CEO, Tucker Company Worldwide

As we alluded to above, we plan to integrate other mission-critical data like temperature readings, humidity, security, and timely and automated notifications when a shipment might be running late so we can intervene early and manage by exception. And, as cameras become more prevalent, we might soon be able to see if a broken seal was simply a door opening and closing, or if something more nefarious occurred. The possibilities are endless.
