Cases in point:

The challenge:

A textbook publisher delivers 90% of their textbooks during the summer to disorganized [it is summer break] individual schools. Almost all of these shipments are LTL. The person responsible at the school for arranging the receiving is usually a principal or a vice principle. The challenge was making sure someone was available to receive the shipment when the truck arrived.

Solution:

Set up SMS text messaging to the receiving party when:

  1. The shipment is shipped complete with link to the carrier’s website
  2. Notify the receiving party when the shipment is out for deliver
  3. Immediately notify the publisher if shipment goes back to the carrier’s dock
  4. Provide carrier terminal contact information to receiver and publisher
  5. Capture redelivery costs to be billed to receiver

The challenge:

A Fortune 50 manufacturer of commercial grade printers and copiers needed to track final mile delivery of their machines so a service tech could meet the truck and securely off load the machine and install it.

Solution:

Provide a mobile friendly app to see stop level detail on delivery trucks through connection with onboard technology. App is permission based so the user (the service tech) only see their deliveries.  

The challenge:
