Optimise your operations with real-time visibility

The journey towards a truly digitised, smart and optimised supply chain starts with real-time visibility

There are many great reasons why carriers should use real-time visibility – you can take control of shipments, communicate and collaborate better, manage your business more effectively, win new business and reduce costs. With real-time visibility, you‘ll eliminate guesswork about shipment location and arrival times.

This smart product uses existing telematics data to keep you, your customers and goods recipients fully informed. It replaces time-consuming processes and poor asset utilisation while enabling proactive transport management. You can also build up actionable insights on your own KPIs and subcontractor performance.

It’s coverage that counts

The true value of real-time visibility is realised when the majority of shipments are visible. This could be a slow, cumbersome process that’s made extra-complex when multiple parties, multiple processes and multiple systems are involved.

Three years ago Transporeon partnered with Sixfold to provide a fast and reliable solution for tracking goods and improving supply chain transparency.

Today, we are taking another important step forward.

We’re removing upfront barriers, letting shippers, carriers and goods recipients access Real Time Visibility to quickly discover the full potential of this functionality. You’ll accelerate the value when you integrate visibility data with transport planning and execution. And using Real Time Visibility now will enable future additional benefits, including new value-adding services based on visibility data.

How to get there?

To get there, Transporeon has upgraded the entire network. On 01 September 2020, we implemented Real Time Visibility as standard across our platform.

    Read Case Study

    Before we implemented the Transporeon and Sixfold visibility solution, we had a large number of manual check calls with the drivers; this was practically the main part of our daily work. After the integration, we noticed a significant 60% decrease in check calls thanks to the automated processes of real-time visibility.
