Trucker Tools, provider of a driver smartphone app and automated Load Track platform, announces an integration with Efreightsolutions, a cloud-based transportation management system (TMS), that delivers real-time freight tracking, driver messaging and electronic proof-of-delivery (POD) through an embedded feature set.
When users click on truckload or LTL shipments in Efreightsolutions, they see a detailed shipment profile that 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.
When the form is complete, the TMS immediately receives GPS updates from Load Track through the Trucker Tools app on the driver’s smartphone. Updates are displayed in the TMS as color-coded pins on a Google Map in the shipment profile.
The Trucker Tools app has been downloaded by more than 400,000 small carrier drivers and owner operators. If the driver has not already downloaded the app, the Load Track integration triggers an instant text message with a link to download the app.
By using the Load Track feature in the app, drivers can view pick-up and delivery details for shipments, instantly message dispatch, and enter the “signed by” name of the consignee and capture POD document images. These images are automatically uploaded and attached to the shipment profile in Efreightsolutions to expedite the billing process.
