Freight visibility is a key
Freight visibility is a key need in the logistics industry, and 1SHIFT has taken a fresh look at this problem and addressed it in a comprehensive manner with its new Tracker update capability.
Real-time location of the truck on a map
When a selected individual (who is not a 1SHIFT user) receives a Tracker update email, that individual clicks a link in the email which provides a complete picture of the delivery, including real-time location of the truck on a map as well as the ETA.
While the primary objective is to allow 1SHIFT clients to provide real-time updates about the shipment to their respective customers, the 1SHIFT solution goes well beyond and provides advanced capabilities such as:
- 1SHIFT users can also generate a Tracker update on demand and include a note for their customers. The Tracker updates can be sent via email or SMS text messages.
- Maintain customer privacy - with deliveries to customers that are each other’s competitors being common, 1SHFT provides complete control over which drop locations will be visible to each Tracker update recipient.
- The Tracker update emails can be generated automatically based on user-selected events such as when the truck is en route to the selected drop location or when it’s running late.
