Cloud-based technology is increasingly becoming important for logistics providers. At least 30% of shippers believe 3PLs should be providing these types of I.T. capabilities.
The COVID-19 pandemic is revealing the importance for shippers to partner with logistics providers that invest in cloud-based collaborative transportation management systems (TMS), as well as automated tools, to ensure that shipments are handled efficiently and effectively, every time.
How can these kinds of digital tools optimize supply chains through COVID-19 and beyond?
- Remote booking makes it easier to connect with shippers in real-time, directly from your mobile device.
- Real-time load management allows for transparency in operations and staying connected with drivers.
- Contactless billing: creates a digital trail for payments that can be easily accessed to review payment status.
