Description

Today, transportation is covered by manual process. Shippers call by phone several transporters in order to find available trucks. This makes it difficult to manage transportation or shippers and causes some delayed deliveries due to lack of trucks availability. On the other hand, carriers struggle to find orders to fulfill their trucks witch drive back empty at mot case. Shire meets the user needs and provides a better solution in terms of efficiency, quality of service and added value. It streamlines the relationship between shippers and transporters via a single digital platform. This platform is a marketplace where transporters come to offer transport services and shippers come to pick up and reserve vehicles to transport their goods according to a set of criteria. Shire is an innovative platform accessible any-time any-where. It allows carriers to benefit from more customers orders, and shippers to take advantage of having the best transportation offers. It also helps reduce cost and improve sales performance as well as simplifying operations management through task automation and easily access to centralized data. Unlike the current manual process, our application offers many benefits like: Simplifying transactions between shippers/carriers • Reducing empty returns • Tracking shipments in real time by GPS • Access anywhere directly on Smartphone and tablet devices
