1. Shipper/forwarder seeking transport
Shipper or Forwarder
The Shipper or Forwarder initiates the proces of transport search, match and execution. Either by inviting specific carriers or trigger an automatic invite based on pre-defined quality criteria. Once a deal is closed (wether or not based on existing contracts) he can follow the whole proces of truck assignment, transport planning, execution and delivery. For all transport jobs under his assignment.
Via intelligent geo-fencing and track&trace software the shipper/forwarder wil have a total overview of whats on the road and where the bottlenecks are. By means of control tower view and automatic alerts.
A carrier (any transport company) starts by completing his company profile. This entails information about certificates, sales or purchase contracts in place and operating assets (trucks, wagons, etc). LOGISA generates a qualitative ranking of the company.
Based on this profile information the carrier is matched with an inquiry. He receives invitations to quote for transport. If his quote is accepted and the contract is fixed the transport order is generated. The carrier can assign trucks to pick-ups, plan his transports, set geo-fences for pre-alerts and the driver is able to give status updates by means of the LOGISA mobile device. The shipper is automatically notified.
Once the cargo has been delivered and the Proof of Delivery is signed off in the LOGISA app, the invoice is generated and send to the shipper.
The carrier is also able to rate the shipper.
The LOGISA system also covers additional services that can be offered by means of so called “trusted third parties”. Companies that have been screened and offer quality services.
