SHIPPING DASHBOARD | TRUCKHUB'S USER FOCUSED EXPERIENCE
Depending on the complexity of the problem software aims at solving, individual user experience may lack. When it comes to inherently complex logistics industry, allowing customized, user focused features is as important as solving the issue at hand. Simply put- digital solutions must incorporate human elements for complete success. TruckHub's specific shipping dashboard aimed at helping shippers in the logistics chain, particularly for last mile delivery, container drayage, and full truckload transport, by creating a clean dashboard with information that they would typical look for the most.
The team by this cloud based proprietary software essentially tackle a two-fold problem within a single objective. As mentioned above, UX/UI does not always gain the same attention from the developing team when compared to solving the problem; with TruckHub's shipping dashboard, the two were tied together since solving the problem of an easy source of information depended on design and digital experience to the user. Some of the key designs revolved around (1) a clean view summary of all active and pending shipments, (2) total earnings, (3) containers, (4) truckloads, and (5) less than truck-load shipping (LTL).
Useful Shipping Based Features in TruckHub
The developing team wanted to provide a straight dashboard for shippers, regardless of company size. Showing information is one thing, providing features that speed up or track accountability is another. To solve the latter one, the developing team added the ability to (1) upload custom info in real-time; no manual entry, (2) viewing pre-planning, pending (current), and post project tasks, (3) automated responses and accountability tracking, (4) integrated QuickBooks & intercom (real-time notifications within the TruckHub platform). These features can help increase the odds of overall project success; for instance, when it comes to full truck load transportation, TruckHub's platform can help (1) reduced cost per unit, (2) shortened transit times, (3) fewer damages, (4) dedicated capacity, (5) more cargo insurance, (6) thousands of carriers, (7) rail or rubber tire options. Another example can be for last mile deliveries- (1) providing proof of delivery (in real-time), (2) live tracking, (3) automated delivery orders, (4) online visibility, (5) GPS tracking on all equipment, and (6) macro-point solutions.

The last point, API's, is especially important since they are extremely intertwined in some of most innovative and in-demand software applications, like Uber and Google Maps (and TruckHub). 3PL companies not willing to make the investment of time and money to build an infrastructure suitable for API can expect to get left behind for increased efficiency and real-time communications. At TruckHub, we use API tracking technologies to provide our customers live updates and 24/7 monitoring of their shipment to ensure that their asset is protected. They’re able to change the world of supply chain technology by allowing speed and scalability that EDI is simply incapable of meeting. It’s currently the fastest and most seamless way to send, receive and access data so that shippers and logistics managers can make the most informed decisions about their supply chain.
