Dealertrack Technologies announced Wednesday that it added enhancements to CentralDispatch, its Web-based transportation marketplace, to improve shipping efficiencies and make more profitable loads for its carrier customers.
The offering, which connects dealers and transport brokers with over 7,900 vehicle carriers nationwide, provides several carrier-specific capabilities, including the following, according to Dealertrack:
- Multipoint Route Search and Mapping, which uses a powerful new search algorithm to help locate extra loads along a chosen route, giving carriers the opportunity to earn more cash on each haul.
- Preferred Shipper, allowing carriers to designate preferred partners to work with, while filtering out non-favorable partners for specific jobs.
- Document Storage, enabling carriers to store and share pertinent files associated with a dispatched vehicle order, such as contracts and vehicle documents, from a single platform or job folder.
- Carrier Invoicing, which allows carrier subscribers to quickly send an invoice to their customers directly from the Central Dispatch platform to accelerate payment and save time with routine billing tasks.
Robert Granados, the senior vice president and general manager of inventory at Dealertrack, says enhancements are focused “to use advanced technology to offer the most efficient vehicle transport system possible for carriers nationwide.”
“This new functionality to CentralDispatch can have a direct positive impact on a carrier’s bottom line, while helping to improve their overall operations,” Granados said. “When carriers have more visibility into available loads along their routes, they can maximize loads with more frequency, leading to greater revenue.”
