CENTRAL TRANSPORT DEPLOYS A NEW DYNAMIC SHIPMENT ACTIVITY MONITOR
Warren, Michigan, February 10, 2009
- Central Transport deployed today a new dynamic shipment activity monitor for use within its LTL transportation and supply chain operations. The new software provides a real-time status display of shipments in the system and enables users to monitor orders at various intervals.
The new software consists of multiple search and notification options that help users monitor all pending pickup stops, shipments in transit, shipments delivered, and dedicated service windows. Users can search across multiple regions and statuses and drill-down into shipment specific details. Customer service agents can instantly provide shipment information to pre-defined contacts via email.
Central Transport is consistently developing new ways to increase visibility within its network for both internal and external customers.
