Truckload carrier Schneider has launched an electronic Driver Report Form in its Bulk division to help streamline operations for drivers and shippers.
The tool is designed to improve what had been a tedious and time-consuming experience for both drivers and shippers in the liquid commodity bulk transportation segment.
The eDRF, which is required at most pick-ups and deliveries, includes many time-saving advantages over the previous paper report. Pre-populated fields created at order creation improve the accuracy of the report, and the electronic version is available on the Schneider portal in short order after a driver submits the completed form from their tablet.
With eDRF, drivers no longer spend valuable time traveling to a facility or truck stop to transmit the paperwork and can use those driving hours more efficiently to move customers’ freight.
“This is a preview of other upcoming driver paperwork processes that have been digitized since we began assigning tablets to drivers in 2018,” said Mike Degeneffe, vice president of technology solution delivery at Schneider. “Our continued investment in technology innovation is directed to eliminate non-driving administrative tasks to help drivers maximize their driving potential and improve their experience away from home.”
