A carrier portal can be a very valuable tool for saving your staff time. When implementing a carrier portal Broker’s must take into account several important questions.
1. How effective are carrier portals in the market today?
2. Do owner operators remember username and passwords for every broker they move freight for?
3. Why would a carrier login to a freight broker's website in the first place?
4. Can Carriers access their portal on Mobile devices?
3PL Systems has the answer to each of these questions… a Carrier Portal with no login required. This unique approach was created with you AND your carriers in mind. We have taken feedback from within the industry and successfully developed this user-friendly solution.
The Carrier Portal will allow carriers to log into their individual carrier portal by clicking on a hyperlink that is provided through quoting or tracking emails. The hyperlink can be saved as a bookmark on the carrier’s web browser for future reference. This provides a fast and secure way for your carriers to access their information without having to remember a username and password.
Below are some solutions the Login Less Carrier Portal provides to carriers and freight brokers.
Get Tracking Updates From Carriers
Your staff can email an Owner Operator to request tracking updates for your shipments. Owner operators can easily open the portal through a web enabled mobile device and communicate the latest shipment status instantly for all shipments currently moving. All shipment updates will be posted as a public note for staff and customers to view.
Respond to Quote Requests and Bid on Available Loads
Carriers will have a one stop shop to respond to your quote requests and bid on available loads. They can review the shipment information and submit a quote response through the Carrier Portal.
They also have the ability to login to their carrier portal to see available loads to bid on. You can make these loads available to them through our Carrier Spot Quote Section. This allows carriers to be proactive during the bidding process and search for uncovered shipments..
Give Your Carrier the Opportunity to Post Their Equipment
Your carriers can now post their available equipment on the new carrier portal. All available equipment that is posted will be available for your dispatchers to research when looking to cover a load.
