GLENVIEW, Ill., May 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Teletrac Navman, a global software-as-a-service provider that leverages location-based technology for GPS tracking solutions, today announced a new partnership with Shipwell, a connected freight platform that enables customers to manage freight shipments from a single software solution. The integration joins Shipwell's automated freight technology with the Teletrac Navman DIRECTOR® fleet management system and the hours-of-service (HOS) data it collects from its electronic logging device (ELD) solution, providing asset detail in real time.
"Our integration with Shipwell puts technology in place that gives managers and dispatchers a comprehensive view of all Less Than Truckload (LTL) and Full Truckload (FTL) activity from any computer or mobile device," said Daren Lauda, general manager of North America, Teletrac Navman. "This makes it possible for shippers to visualize their entire supply chain with ELD and HOS compliance in mind."
"Shipping involves extensive communication and planning between different audiences, which often led to inefficiencies that stalled deliveries," said Jason Traff, co-founder, Shipwell. "In the past, for example, it wasn't uncommon for loads to be booked on trucks with insufficient HOS to complete a shipment. Our new integration with Teletrac Navman makes that problem a thing of the past and means we can provide our customers with a much faster, hands-on shipping experience."
Features of the integration include:
- One central freight management platform to get quotes, book carriers, track shipments and ensure HOS through ELD solutions.
- Precise minute-by-minute GPS locations for tracking shipments of all sizes as drivers travel in and out of job zones.
- Automated detention time directly from the Shipwell platform and app, based on precise GPS location and stop data.
- Two-way messaging via form messages to send instant updates and documentation for last-minute assignments, customer requests or instructions.
- Driver profiles, vehicle assignments and driver HOS service input so customers know who is transporting their goods and when they're on breaks.
