Truck drivers to manage electronic Bill of Lading via smartphone quickly and easily
Shippeo, a European leader in real-time transportation visibility solutions, has announced a new mobile application, offering a range of new capabilities. Shippeo’s mobile application allows truck drivers to manage electronic Bill of Lading via smartphone quickly and easily, unlocking the benefits of paperless administration. These include instant synchronisation with TMS for faster billing while also reducing administrative cost. In addition, electronic forms avoid paper handling, reducing hygiene concerns amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
The mobile app integrates the generation of electronic Bills of Lading (or eCMRs) capturing electronic signatures and enabling paperless proof of delivery and fasting invoicing. Delivery personnel can quickly report on delivery completion, whether it was done OTIF (on time, in full) and complied with protocols, with the ability to take a photo of the item upon delivery. This data is synchronised with the platform in real-time, giving customer support teams instant access and triggering proactive alerts and notifications on delivery status automatically sent to customers.
The application allows precise tracking of LTL loads, granting visibility down to the logistics unit level, capturing all key movements of a shipment throughout the delivery journey. The app comes with many standard pallet types prepopulated, with other unit sizes being customisable, from packages through to extra-large custom-sized shipments.
The ability to scan a pallet’s unique SSCC code via the mobile application also makes it easier to recover lost pallets, saving shippers and carriers the cost of replacements, by showing the pallet’s last known location. It also displays tour information, helping to organise milk runs and LTL loads. Any changes made to milk-runs by operational teams in their TMS are automatically and instantly synchronised with the app, increasing operational agility.
