Auto logistics technology provider Ship.Cars has launched its AI-powered SmartHaul TMS transportation management system for auto haulers.
Ship.Cars, in a press release, said the complete smart technology platform incorporates a full suite of features using data-driven insights, machine learning and artificial intelligence tools to save time, increase efficiency, meet consumer demand, and drive carrier profitability.
SmartHaul TMS includes features that Ship.Cars said will help company owners, dispatchers, and drivers work smarter and haul faster, giving them tools they need to improve their operations. The company said this digital platform optimizes finding a load, booking it, and processing it, helping carriers efficiently meet the needs of their shippers, including dealerships, auctions, and retail individuals.
According to the company, SmartHaul TMS uses sophisticated algorithms and predictive modeling to provide carriers with the right loads at the right time. By harnessing these intelligent capabilities, carriers can quickly make informed decisions that could have a positive impact on their bottom lines.
Key Features of SmartHaul TMS
- Trip builder — Drivers can reduce deadhead miles by seeing all potential loads on their route, swapping between load opportunities, and configuring a trip with the best dollar-per-mile value possible.
- AI damage inspection — Ship.Cars integrates AI damage inspection software into a driver delivery application. While eliminating human error and producing more accurate reporting, the AI damage inspection tool reduces vehicle inspection times by up to 60%, according to the company, with full condition reports sent within 30 seconds.
- Mobile ship — The mobile market load board gives drivers full access to available loads within the SmartHaul app. The app provides immediate access to the tools needed to search, negotiate, and book loads from a phone. A customizable search tool informs drivers of all postings and gives them access to exclusive loads available for instant booking through partnerships with shippers of all sizes. In addition, the mobile load board includes a negotiation tool that keeps all interactions in one place and is updated in real-time.
The SmartHaul TMS platform introduces a comprehensive suite of smart features that enhance carrier efficiency and reduce reliance on manual labor, automating tasks within the transportation management process, the company said. Also, SmartHaul TMS enables carriers to allocate their resources more strategically.
Industry reaction has been positive, according to Vladimir Kadurin, product and operations lead at Ship.Cars.
“Ship.Cars users are already completing nearly 50,000 monthly inspections; the Trip Builder feature has enabled nearly a 100% increase in trips created; and the mobile load board is already being used by half of all current market load board users.”
Ship.Cars reported it currently serves more than 30,000 carriers and 90,000 drivers, operating over 110,000 trucks. Based on current TMS usage, the company anticipates increasing its volume to over 20,000 users per month.
“We are dedicated to helping carriers maximize their profits,” said Eftim Eftimov, president of Ship.Cars. “With new AI-powered tools that strengthen search, dispatch and inspection, SmartHaul TMS prepares carriers for a more profitable future.”
