IntelliTrans Introduces Kiosk for Supply Chain TMS, Keeping Drivers In-Cab to Improve Safety

IntelliTrans Introduces Kiosk for Supply Chain TMS, Keeping Drivers In-Cab to Improve Safety 

IntelliTrans Transportation Management System Reduces Waiting Time and Onsite Injuries 

Atlanta, GA — November 15, 2022 — IntelliTrans, the leader in global multi-modal solutions for optimizing supply chain operations for bulk & break-bulk industries, introduces Kiosk functionality within the IntelliTrans Transportation Management System. Using the Kiosk feature built into the IntelliTrans TMS Mobile App, truck drivers entering a facility no longer need to get out of their cabs or wait in line for loading instructions. This improves their safety, speeds up the check-in process, and reduces on-site time by 30 minutes or more which significantly lowers total shipping cost. The entire process is self-service – from arrival at the facility to being called in for loading via text/push notification.

“Previously, the guard in a guard shack had to look at his clipboard to validate whether a particular truck should be on the property,” said Brian Cupp, Director of Operations at IntelliTrans. “Guards needed to validate that the driver was with the right company with the correct load and that the driver could check-in. With Kiosk, the guard knows this information before the truck arrives, allowing him to wave the driver into the yard without the driver having to stop and get out of the truck. Even better, the warehouse personnel preparing shipments sees when a truck is approaching the facility prior to check-in – providing advanced confirmation of the required product staging. This new self-service experience has really helped employee and driver satisfaction, as well as reduced on-site time.”

As part of the check-in process (which can only be performed in the IntelliTrans Mobile App when the driver’s GPS coordinates confirm they are on-site), drivers review and acknowledge Gate Agreements, Safety Requirements, Shipment Details, and other information and provide an e-signature, all of which is sent to the customers’ ERP through an API.  This supports corporate Audit initiatives and expedites the entire process dramatically.

While use of the Kiosk features of the IntelliTrans TMS Mobile App is convenient for drivers using the app for load assignment, scheduling, and real-time tracking, the Kiosk can also be used inside the gatehouse on a tablet or mounted in a weatherproof enclosure at the gate, allowing drivers to enter information while in their cab without the app.

“The IntelliTrans Kiosk came about from a desire by our customers to improve site safety and reduce close-contact processes during COVID,” adds Brian Flint, Global Director of Product Management at IntelliTrans. “The inaugural customer, a major forest producer, wanted to improve safety for their drivers and employees. Adding Kiosk into the IntelliTrans TMS allowed us to support their safety initiatives, but also extended the closed-loop processes of the IntelliTrans TMS all the way to the driver, making the whole process safer and much more efficient.”

The IntelliTrans Kiosk also features the following:

  • Pictorial instructions, such as PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) requirements while on-site.
  • Wireless interface to industrial lighted signage, providing drivers a real-time view of their position in line and instructions to move from waiting areas, eliminating the need for employees to be in the yard around dangerous equipment.
  • Direct call-in of drivers from forklift operators using the IntelliTrans TMS Dock Schedule, which updates the signage and notifies drivers through Push Notifications (when using the app) and Text Messaging (when using the fixed kiosk)
  • Multi-language capability, allowing all facilities use the same standard operating processes.

“Dispatchers don’t have to leave the office area, risking injury,” adds Cupp. “One safety-oriented company invested in further preventing the risk of injury on site by using the Kiosk to keep drivers in their truck cabs and their employees out of high-risk areas.”

“The IntelliTrans Kiosk has also reduced waiting time by rewarding appointment time compliance. The call-in queue prioritizes on-time pickups, and since scheduling, arrival, check-in, and on-site movements are all controlled from one platform, good behavior is rewarded” adds Flint. “Paperwork has been reduced, documentation is digitized, and all parties enjoy a better experience.”

Shippers and Carriers have found the IntelliTrans Kiosk is very beneficial in helping improve their relationship. Drivers are much happier with the streamlined workflow. Carriers benefit from driver satisfaction and operational efficiencies. Efficiency gains are realized by all parties, which improves the carrier-shipper relationship.

IntelliTrans Introduces Global Visibility Platform for Ocean

IntelliTrans Introduces
Global Visibility Platform for Ocean

Planning, Booking, Execution, and Tracking All on a Single Platform 

Atlanta, GA — October 25, 2022 — IntelliTrans, the leader in global multi-modal solutions for optimizing supply chain operations for bulk & break-bulk industries, introduces the Global Supply Chain Visibility Platform for ocean shipments. On a single platform that combines truck, rail, barge, and now ocean freight, shippers plan, book, execute, and track ocean shipments all in one place, providing visibility for the entire lifecycle of the ocean shipment. 

“The ocean freight industry struggles with lost containers, congested ports, shipping container shortages, rising freight rates, lack of carrier capacity, and crew shortages,” said Bernard Cohen, Senior Product Manager, IntelliTrans. “Ocean shipments are slower than other modes yet offer significant sustainability benefits while also delivering lower cost per unit. For these reasons and more, shippers are leveraging ocean freight as supply chains suffer from fluctuations in supply and demand, increasing operating costs and diminishing bottom line profits.” 

‘The IntelliTrans Global Supply Chain Visibility Platform (GVP) for ocean helps shippers and carriers meet the overwhelming challenges associated with ocean freight,” said Ken Sherman, President, IntelliTrans. “While some vendors only provide a tracking platform, IntelliTrans realizes that shippers’ challenges demand a more robust solution that actually helps them book and execute. That’s why IntelliTrans is proud to develop a complete tracking. booking, and execution platform that becomes the integrated command center for a shipper’s transportation logistics needs. Our GVP provides visibility for any mode – ocean, truck, barge, or rail.” 

IntelliTrans GVP Ocean now gives extra visibility on container tracking, along with:

  • Connections to over 100 ocean carriers, NVOCCs, and freight forwarders, eliminating the need for shippers to reach out to each carrier by email, phone, or carrier website. The Ocean platform covers 100 carriers, 425,000 port pairs, and 18M schedules so shippers have a wide range of carriers and schedules to cover their loads.
  • Shippers submit booking requests and receive booking confirmations on the GVP portal electronically, making it faster, easier to track, and more automated. Orders can be shipped via a full container or less than full container load. Tracking data and shipment execution are exchanged between carriers and shippers all in the same portal.
  • Electronic bill of lading (BOL) and online shipment instructions comply with industry-standard data points. Shippers can view historical shipping instructions and compare them to current ones to generate insightful dashboards with KPIs.
  • Booking and shipping instruction templates help shippers with pre-populated forms, making it quicker and easier to execute a shipment, and enabling staff to focus on more value-added tasks.
  • Seamless in-transit shipment tracking for ocean vessels and inland moves, so shippers know where their shipments are at all times. Shipments can be viewed on maps, regardless of mode, so ocean, rail, and truck appear on the same map for a holistic view of transport operations. These may be used internally or securely shared with customers for a better experience by a shippers’ customers
  • In addition to the Carrier ETA, the GVP Ocean platform also provides a dynamic ETA’s calculated using multiple data points. This provides shippers with a more accurate estimated time of arrival for improved operational planning.
  • Industry-standard value codes, UN location codes, and HS codes for approximately 38,000 products avoiding transmission failures to ocean carriers. The benefit of this would be when a user is entering a transaction into the system, the location and product fields have preestablished values which avoids bad data entry.
  • Ocean schedules enable planners to determine the best route option. The platform returns all possible options with available transit dates, estimated arrival times, voyage information, and terminal information so that planners can pick the best lane with confidence.
  • Container tracking captures future critical events when importing containers, allowing shippers to easily tender a truck and have the shipment picked up on time.
  • IntelliTrans Open Message Systems Interface (OMSI) support connects virtually any TMS, ERP, and third-party providers, enabling shippers to have visibility from a purchase order number and other essential reference numbers or information. 

“Shippers have everything they need to ship and track ocean freight on one platform,” adds Cohen.
