The freight and logistics industry has always faced a number of issues due to its complex supply chains, fragmented trucking industry, and ongoing communication barriers between shippers, carriers, and brokers. That is, until companies like LiteLink Technologies Inc. (CSE:LLT) (OTC:LLNKF) came along.
The reality is no one has nailed the secret sauce to success on how to build a sustainable marketplace with trust, or solved the problem with shotty tracking. Most importantly, no one has solved the problem of increasing driver loyalty and satisfaction. This has been quite disappointing to date. Why can’t a trillion dollar industry solve this problem to date? There are millions up for grabs for private and venture capital funding for those that can solve the problem.
Enter LiteLink. LiteLink Technologies is a major player in developing world-class enterprise platforms, first focused on building 1SHIFT Logistics platform that offers an end-to-end solution that will address top industry issues like driver shortage and driver satisfaction; hours-of-service; electronic logging device (ELD) mandate; and compliance, safety, and accountability (CSA). Their software focus is solely on improving the industry from the ground up and ensuring everyone is treated and compensated fairly with visibility, transparency, and trust that keeps the entire industry motivated.
So where is LiteLink in solving this major industry challenge?
LiteLink hit a major milestone this week after announcing the launch of the full Beta version of its 1SHIFT logistics platform to the North American market. As of April 15, the proprietary software will be available to shippers, brokers, and carriers across the continent through a self-registration portal. 1SHIFT is thriving to become the multi-tier GPS platform with a solution that no one else has in the industry.
The company’s 1SHIFT logistics platform integrates blockchain, biometric, GPS tracking, and AI technology to offer real-time transparency and tracking that allows brokers, shippers, and carriers to track shipments and settle payments in real-time. Not only do you get tracking and tracing, you get the industry’s most user-friendly notifications and problem management platform that takes away the guessing and suspense if your load will arrive on time.
1SHIFT’s key features include a capacity search that will enable brokers and shippers to connect and create new Carrier relationships; AI analysis of paperwork, intuitive integration with GPS and onboard Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) to track the truck location and driver hours, and carrier interface to bid for available freight and to update status.
The app will also allow carriers to accurately track and trace shipments throughout regions, including dead zones. Carriers will also be able to view real-time shipment details and flag any issues. The app will automatically provide the geolocation using the phone’s GPS capabilities, enabling dispatchers to view an interactive map that shows the current location and progress of each shipment. Truckers can download the app to view loads that are available near their vicinity. The app will show them the distance they have to travel, the amount the carrier will pay to ship the load and it will optimize their routes for fast delivery and gas savings.
The 1SHIFT app will allow users to open tasks quickly and select from open shipments to view drop schedules. It even features an integrated driver wallet for payments and allows users to upload documents using their phone cameras.
“The 1SHIFT product roadmap is extensive with at least 6 major release this year (get ready industry!), and this release is just the beginning of some very industry changing features. We are working on next-gen features that will position 1SHIFT as a platform that is uniquely positioned to address the evolving needs of shippers, brokers and carriers,” LiteLink’s Product Executive Mobeen Ladak said.
It will be exciting to see how the Beta Release of the 1SHIFT Logistics platform will be received by the industry. The first handful of trial customers continue to show support for 1SHIFT, which is a great leading indicator for the next tranche of customers.
