Shipping Carrier Delay
Imagine this, you are a busy freight forwarder and your client has been wondering about the whereabouts of their shipment cargo for a while, but you have no idea where it is. You suspect there has been a carrier delay, but the carrier’s website system is down and their call center is offline. What can you do next in this situation? The only solution is to wait for operating hours to roll around again so you can contact the carriers for information.
Shipping cargo is a multi-step process, and carrier delays often occur during transportation. That’s why it’s crucial to have real-time carrier information that will keep you updated on where your shipments are. It’s beneficial to both you and your clients, so why not use technology to your advantage and implement a freight forwarding management system that uses EDI-integration and gives you accurate real-time data of your shipments’ location?
