Importance of New Technologies
Though few would argue against the value of modern technology and up-to-date innovations within the supply chain industry, unlocking the true value of your freight market might not look as clearly as you’d expect it to.
In adopting modern shipping technologies, you can leave the heavy lifting of freight management to your systems rather than your time consuming, outdated processes. Modern technology has helped shippers and brokers interact with each other and engage the freight market in a variety of new ways. To stay up to date with transactions, and improve your shipping load accommodation, you’ll want to consider implementing these technologies.
Ease of Internal Communication
When it comes to adopting the latest technology and digital systems within the freight industry, one of the first benefits you’ll witness is ease of internal communication. From connecting with other shippers or even different levels of staff on internal crew, these technologies make coordination efforts seamless. Connecting with your team through digital matching tools based on set parameters has never been simpler. Access everything you need from employee contact info to state-of-the-art tools and dashboards, making communication accessible from anytime, anywhere.
Effective Shipping & Tracking
With modern shipping technologies, you can allow your team to tackle instant scheduling and shipment changes, accept a freight job digitally, and do so much more. A faster process and improved success rates are win-win solutions for shippers and digital freight brokers alike.
Using these technologies, shippers can gain access to more capacity, more loads for brokers, and more brokers for shippers, all of which can keep freight moving. A centralized, organized location for collaboration can speed up and streamline the process of shipping and tracking. If you’ve been looking to advance your shipping and tracking capabilities, modern technology is the way to go.

Increasing Load Accommodation
With rising shipping demands, freight companies have witnessed a need to improve and increase load accommodation solutions. In integrating modern shipping technology, your systems can help accommodate spot loads at a lower price point than blindly contacting carriers based on assumption. With predictive data and planning capabilities, your system is more likely to match you with a suitable carrier solution, thus increasing your load capabilities.
Data & Inventory Tracking
When it comes to keeping up with your data and shipments, modern technology can keep everything neatly collected in one digital place. Through automated data entry and integrated systems, implementing modern technologies can provide your company with a complete view of each shipment’s needs.
From viewing end-to-end production, daily tracking processes, and even inventory tracking can allow management to pinpoint problem areas sooner and help streamlining your entire shipping process moving forward. From ship packaging to carrier unloading, keep everything organized and efficient with digitally integrated shipping platforms.
