AUTOMATED DATA COLLECTION

Effortless, automatic collection and transmission of data from the telematics system or TMS replaces time-consuming manual processes and eliminates human error

How it works:

Carriers provide their transportation data to the Sixfold product. Most carriers choose to do this by integrating their existing telematics system, as this eliminates manual processes. Some carriers, especially smaller operators, prefer to provide data via smartphone or tablet PC. Another option for carriers is using Transporeon Time Slot Management to provide data, again eliminating manual processes. Data is automatically shared between Transporeon and Sixfold. To ensure highest real-time data reliability, carrier data is enriched with information about traffic congestion and waiting times.

All authorized parties receive worldwide cloud access to the clearly structured Sixfold information. Mobile-optimized views mean that smartphone and tablet PC users do not need to install any apps. In addition, shipment tracking links can be sent with just one click to selected contacts – shippers, carriers, and goods recipients. Click for a PDF summary.
