Trucker Tools, provider of the Load Track platform, announced an integration with the cloud-based transportation management system, Efreightsolutions. The integration offers users of Efreightsolutions real-time freight tracking, driver messaging and electronic proof-of-delivery through an embedded feature set.
“Our partnership with Trucker Tools offers freight brokers and 3PLs that use our transportation management system seamless access to real-time shipment visibility,” said Walter Mitchell, chief technology officer of Efreightsolutions. “Our clients can easily use the integrated Load Track feature for any or all of their shipments to operate more efficiently and improve customer service.”
When Efreightsolutions users click on a truckload or LTL shipments, they see a detailed shipment profile that now includes a “Start Load Track” option. By selecting this option, a form opens to enter the cell phone number of the driver assigned to the shipment. The form also has icons to optionally send the driver an instant message and request a “signed by” name and images of POD documents upon delivery.
Once the form is completed, the TMS receives GPS updates from Load Track through the Trucker Tools app on the driver’s smartphone. The updates are displayed in the TMS as color-coded pins on a Google Map in the shipment profile.
Pricing for the integrated Load Track feature starts at $1.05 per load for freight brokers with high volumes. Location updates are continuous and in near real time, with no limitations on the number of days and stop events from pickup to final delivery.
