THE POWER OF LOGISTICS AUTOMATION: SAVING TIME, MONEY, AND RESOURCES
Updated: Jul 12
The freight industry has been around as long as people and businesses have needed to ship things around, but unlike many other industries, the freight industry has resisted automating its many antiquated processes.
With endless phone calls, excessive and tedious paperwork, and manual negotiations still commonplace all over the industry, it begs asking the question, “Is there a better way?”
That’s where logistics automation comes in. By automating your logistics, freight businesses can streamline outdated processes, in turn saving time and money that can be better spent elsewhere.
HOW CAN LOGISTICS AUTOMATION HELP YOUR BUSINESS?
The main advantage of logistics automation is in the very name itself. Automation allows you to take time-consuming and repetitive tasks and processes and streamline them so that you can spend less on labor and resources while still operating faster than ever.
By collecting and transferring information upfront automation also helps improve transparency between shipper, carrier, and broker. This cuts out the middleman, allows for faster communication and payment processing, and reduces the risk of miscommunication and errors.
HOW CASHFREIGHT LEADS THE WAY IN LOGISTICS AUTOMATION
The freight industry is an industry that's stuck in the past in a lot of ways, but here at Cashfreight, we know just how important it is to bring our industry out of the past and into the future. Our logistics platform and automated load board is designed to save shippers, carriers, and brokers alike, time, money, and resources. But that’s not all Cashfreight brings to the table.
EFFICIENT AND TRANSPARENT COMMUNICATION
Say bye to neverending phone calls and hello to streamlined communication. By collecting information upfront, Cashfreight allows shippers and carriers to know exactly what they’re getting into before shipping or accepting a load and making mistakes due to miscommunication a thing of the past.
Our automated load board also cuts out the middleman, speeding up the whole negotiation process and cutting costs, and our automated messaging system can automatically send messages to customers as soon as new information is available about their shipment, further increasing transparency between business and client.
AUTOMATED DOCUMENTS AND PAYMENT
Paperwork and proper documentation can take a long time to do by hand, and the repetition involved can make even the most attentive workers prone to mistakes. However, by automating all of these processes, Cashfreight eliminates human error and the need to pay someone else to keep track of all your paperwork.
Cashfreight also automates payments so that instead of waiting for weeks or months to get paid, you can trust that payment will go through within 48 hours of the job being completed.
CONFIDENCE, LOYALTY, AND FEEDBACK
Cashfreight logistics automation also helps build confidence between shippers and carriers and loyalty among customers. Payment is always protected until a job is completed and approved preventing any foul play.
Shippers and carriers can also write feedback for the people they work with, giving everyone on the platform a reasonable way to judge if a potential shipper or carrier is able and trustworthy, while also building respect and loyalty between the two in the process.
