TruckerCloud Introduces Instant Carrier Onboarding
Fremont, CA: From new technologies to reap benefits to shifting regulations that need new strategies and tactics to ensure compliance, logistics companies should stay plugged into new trends to remain competitive.
TruckerCloud, a real-time freight visibility software platform, has launched Instant Carrier Onboarding.
With most freight visibility platforms, it can take up to 24-48 hours or more to onboard each carrier. With TruckerCloud's new, patent-pending technology, carriers can be onboarded instantly. It's so fast that shippers, brokers, and 3PLs can use TruckerCloud's freight visibility for the spot market, so 100% of their loads can be tracked.
TruckerCloud has launched Instant Carrier Onboarding for immediate, real-time freight visibility in transportation.
"Setting up a new carrier to track their trucks has traditionally been a challenge," remarked Spencer Mitchell, CEO of TruckerCloud. "Transportation folks have had to choose between two freight visibility options that weren't ideal. They could quickly set up mobile app tracking, which is imperfect (the driver's phone could be personal property and may not physically be with the truckload) and can be costly (if the app is pinging a cell tower every few minutes). Or they could use an ELD-based system, which is more accurate, but carrier onboarding is typically time-consuming and a hassle."
For carriers who are new to the TruckerCloud platform, an email will be sent to them in which they will be asked to simply select their ELD from a menu and enter their credentials. The link is instantly verified, and truck location data is available to their customers within minutes. Carriers who are already part of the TruckerCloud ecosystem can use their existing ELD credentials to quickly approve or decline new relationship requests within their account.
