Does Your 3PL Have a Portal
2 minute read
What Is A Portal?
In the logistics industry, information is king. Shipping customers need access to important data, and a client portal gives customers that all-important access. If your 3PL doesn’t utilize an online portal, you’re missing out on technology that saves you time and money while boosting efficiency!
A good online portal:
- Is easy for customers to navigate.
- Should be mobile device friendly.
- Provides real-time load tracking and visibility.
- Offers customized reports and customizable views.
- Supplies access to invoices, bills, orders, and inventory.
A Great Portal Empowers Customers
Right now, shippers are operating in a volatile transportation market. Spot market rates are up, the ELD rule is in its hard-enforcement stage, and the driver shortage is showing no signs of letting up. Capacity is worse than tight! And we’re just now heading into the busy season as produce has been a little slow this year. While recent DAT reports show the load to truck ratio dipped a bit in March, it was still up 116% compared to March 2017.
