EKA Solutions, which offers a cloud-based integrated freight management ecosystem platform, has expanded its collaboration with Transflo to implement digital and automated transportation document workflow between shippers and carriers.
“While EKA’s new investments are focused on implementing [artificial intelligence], machine learning and other technological solutions to transform the supply chain, EKA is also focused on delivering six-figure savings to its customers by digitizing document workflows across the transportation chain,” said J.J. Singh, EKA founder and CEO, in the announcement.
The collaboration will deliver smart electronic documents solutions, such as electronic bill of lading (eBOL), that results in reduced physical contact, fewer labor hours, higher document accuracy, and improved cashflow, with a high level of safety, searchability and security, Singh explained. “Digitizing BOL is just one important step of going contactless.”
Transflo’s new digital and automated eBOL solution will be seamlessly integrated with the EKA Omni-TMS platform.
