Project44 has expanded its advanced visibility platform for shippers and third-party logistics firms to offer new truckload tracking capabilities aimed at empowering organizations to ship more efficiently and provide greater customer satisfaction.
The newly launched capabilities further enable manufacturers, retailers, distributors, wholesalers and logistics providers to meet on-demand customer expectations, lower costs while increasing productivity, reduce driver dwell time and dock congestion, better manage inventory, and satisfy tight or just-in-time delivery requirements.
New new truckload capabilities within project44's advanced visibility platform include:
- Deliver accurate and proactive tracking: project44 retrieves location updates from carriers via ELD, telematics, direct APIs, app-less tracking or smartphone applications, then enriches the data and applies predictive analytics to deliver more accurate, proactive Truckload arrival, pickup, location, ETA and delivery information.
- Enable dynamic, predictive delivery times: ETAs are available pre-pickup through to delivery, dynamically changing with every data point and are responsive to real-time conditions, including traffic patterns, weather and road conditions. Road constraints (i.e. maximum height or weight of a vehicle) will also be considered in order to predict the most likely driver route. Driver hours of service will be factored in to predict driver idle time and further refine the accuracy of the ETA.
- Allow for personalized notifications and more meaningful collaboration: Configurable, rule-based email, SMS, API updates or push notifications ensure that internal and external teams are empowered with the latest shipment information, improving organization-wide decision making and proactive collaboration. A multi-tiered, time-based (geofenced) threshold can be applied to trigger events allowing for more flexible altering.
- Reduce cold chain risk with live temperature control: Track temperature in real-time across cold chains via connections to a wide variety of IoT sources, allowing users to receive alerts as soon as exceptions occur to ensure freshness and avoid loss.
“We have built our advanced visibility platform that delivers complete transparency into real-time locations and predictive delivery estimates of full truckload shipments, regardless of truck type,” says Mike Reed, chief strategy officer at project44. “Our modular and easy-to-implement model ensures that all project44 customers are quickly setup for success now and in the future.”
