Do you operate a Florida-based trucking company or 3PL business? If so, you know firsthand how challenging it can be to run a profitable company, while delivering quotes to potential customers and ensuring visibility throughout the process. The good news is that trucking software can provide you with significant benefits and better utility. Of course, you’ll need to know what features to look for in a software platform.
One of the most important aspects of a worthwhile trucking software platform is the ability to communicate. The software you choose should support accurate, immediate communication between all parties involved, including dispatchers, customers, drivers and more.
The software you choose should improve accountability, particularly with your drivers. Customers should be able to track their shipment at all times, in real-time, and not with just a “rough guess”. Real-time information ensures that accurate decisions can be made about delivery receiving, shipment unloading and more, which benefit your customer significantly.
The process of quoting a potential customer on shipment costs can be lengthy, and even convoluted. The software you choose should take the pain out of that process. A customer should be able to send an inquiry regarding the shipping they need, including notations of FTL, LTL, import/export and more, and you should be able to reply instantaneously with an accurate quote. Once the customer approves the quote, you should be able to move the entire transaction to dispatch.
The entire point of trucking software should be to create a seamless experience from beginning to end, coupled with the ability to utilize innovative features, tools and capabilities. It should be about breaking down barriers and removing hurdles that traditionally make it more difficult to operate a logistics company. The right software will provide a single hub through which all of your activity will take place. This ensures that everything is visible at all times, that communication is instantaneous, and that everyone is on the same page at all times.
