Digital document capture & sending isn’t a new practice in 2020, but the current pandemic has created a sense of urgency that has rapidly increased the abilities and functionality of solutions like electronic bill of lading (eBOL) and electronic proof of delivery (ePOD) – among other cloud-based solutions in freight.
In an attempt to support social distancing among drivers AND efficiency among remote workers, enhanced technology has quickly been developed. And these recent developments in digital solutions don’t only apply to the immediate need for tools during a pandemic, but are also contributing a new way of running the supply chain entirely, that will stretch far beyond the pandemic.
“What changed during the COVID-19 pandemic is that more shippers no longer print BOLs but instead send digital documents to carriers before drivers arrive to pick up loads.” Source.
Transflo has a large footprint with 1.92 million Transflo Mobile+ app users, and a truck stop scanning network at more than 3,000 locations. Rather than develop a standard process for shippers and receivers, Transflo has gathered their individual requirements to create integrated eBOL and ePOD processes that’re ideal for shippers and the supply chain as a whole.
