Business Challenges

The company is having multiple branches from where thousands of vehicles are transporting millions of loads. During cargo shipment from one place to another, a lot of processes are done.

Firstly, it is checked whether the freight to transfer belongs to one of the ODA location or not, if so, then with the third party company it’s brought to the warehouse. Afterwards, it’s picked up, a docket number is assigned, transit mode is chosen, route is decided, transit days are computed, and specific truck is allotted and then the load is transferred to the final destination.

In the complete process, managing the vehicles at different branches, tracking whether booked cargo shipment is picked-up, crossed the hub and delivered or not, and keeping records of the billing and transactions manually on the paper was inefficient, time-consuming and extremely taxing.
