In the intricate web of the supply chain, a symphony of individuals plays pivotal roles in ensuring the seamless movement of goods and materials. From yard supervisors orchestrating the efficient storage and retrieval of cargo to dispatchers coordinating intricate schedules, and accountants diligently managing financial transactions, each member of this ensemble contributes to the harmonious operation of the supply chain.
Amid this intricate choreography, intermodal truck drivers shine as the uncelebrated champions of the highways, shouldering the vital task of physically conveying goods across extensive distances. Yet, when queried about their foremost challenge, they consistently highlight the frustration stemming from the disjointed nature of the technologies they engage with. The exasperation caused by systems that fail to communicate harmoniously forms an obstacle that not only impedes their effectiveness but also disrupts the seamless flow of the entire supply chain. However, in the ever-evolving landscape of intermodal shipping, SiteTrax distinguishes itself as a trailblazer, introducing groundbreaking technology meticulously tailored to cater to the requirements of intermodal truck drivers.
SiteTrax’s platform is known for its ability to put truck drivers in control of their inventory. With the help of AI (Artificial Intelligence) powered Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, it allows drivers to effortlessly capture the ID and location of intermodal assets, such as containers and chassis, and send this crucial information anywhere it is needed.
Now, SiteTrax is introducing the game-changing Mobile Quick Capture app, a valuable tool designed specifically for asset tracking. This user-friendly app works like a trusty companion, providing truck drivers with a quick and easy five-second snapshot that records vital details like pickup time, drop-off time, asset location, and product condition.
One of the best aspects of the Mobile Quick Capture app is how much intermodal truckers appreciate it. The ability to record essential information, such as proof of pickup and delivery times, is invaluable. Furthermore, the app eliminates any doubts about product damage by providing clear images of the goods.
Intermodal drivers resoundingly share that they “don’t want to be bothered with paperwork or computer work.” The Quick Capture app not only provides valuable views of shipments for yard checks, inventory tracking, and in/out gate transactions, but it also integrates seamlessly with the SiteTrax platform, delivering critical data to management. This data can be easily incorporated into reports and used to make real-time business decisions, ensuring that everyone involved is current and on top of their game.
The outcome is a win-win situation for all parties involved. Management receives up-to-date data that they can rely on, drivers enjoy having access to detailed information at their fingertips, and everyone appreciates the app’s user-friendliness. Additionally, Quick Capture comes at an affordable cost, making it an even more appealing solution for truck drivers.
For added convenience, the Quick Capture Android app can be easily downloaded from the SiteTrax self-service portal (service.sitetrax.io). By signing up today, drivers can receive one hundred free scans, opening the door to complete visibility from the beginning to the end of their journeys. With SiteTrax’s state-of-the-art technology and the Quick Capture app by their side, drivers can tackle the challenges of intermodal shipping with confidence and ease. Or, as one truck driver summarizes it best, “simpler is better.”
