DispatchManager - First and last mile visibility is within reach
Since the inception of containerization, the industry has attempted to gain visibility of the first and last mile by implementing elaborate manual processes and by installing expensive software and hardware. The fact that the initial and final legs of an intermodal trip take place in different networks on disparate systems has made visibility elusive. But today, the IAS-Connected motor carrier network you have needed is available and the visibility you have needed can be achieved quickly, easily, and within your own dispatch workflow.
Capturing first and last mile data allows asset and cargo owners to manage intermodal moves more effectively, reducing costs and improving customer service. First and last mile data from DispatchManager can be used for internal analysis to pinpoint efficiency gains and evaluate opportunities for further operational improvements. Additionally, drayage visibility enables you to provide customers with trusted information on actual shipment pick-up and delivery times to keep everyone fully updated on transport schedules. Last mile visibility, while valuable in its own right, is the key to much larger savings. It is only when you can see the big picture – the work order details and progression - that true cost control and transportation optimization becomes a reality.
