TRUCKING

Shift Your Trucking into High Gear

Flexport trucking solutions carry containers across the yard, country, or border, on the way to warehouses or other transport modes. Track all of it and collaborate with partners in the Flexport Platform.

FLEXPORT PLATFORM

You’re in the Driver’s Seat

The Flexport Platform makes it easy to manage trucking with the rest of your supply chain. Track transit times, get milestone updates validated by onboard diagnostics, and set parameters for carrier and warehouse partners to collaborate.

TRANSMISSION

Easy Digitization for Truck Drivers

Flexport helps truckers be as efficient as possible. The purpose-built Transmission app lets drivers plan pick-ups and dropoffs, then scan to report milestones in real time. Paperwork could never.

WAREHOUSE

Turn Your Warehouse into a Powerhouse

Your warehouse won’t have to ask for whereabouts. Flexport’s Warehouse app simplifies scheduling with real-time updates from truck drivers. Expedited turns speed containers back to port for lower risk of detention fees.

EXCEPTIONS

Take the Wheel as Needed

Prioritize shipments in transit, get alerts when issues arise, and find the root cause of network bottlenecks, all in the Flexport Platform. Real-time communication helps resolve exceptions in time to stay on time.

Transmission has been a success: before, a Flexport Operation Associate spent ~47 minutes tracking the final delivery of an ocean container with a trucking carrier. With the app, that time decreased to just 5 minutes. That’s a 90% reduction.

INSIGHTS

See Accessorial Costs in Real Time

Turn “What the truck is this?” into an understanding of cost by lane, mode, and time period. See charges as they’re recorded by truckers in the Transmission app, so you can calculate landed costs right the first time.

FULL TRUCKLOAD

Truckloads of Options

Flexport FTL services can be a shortcut around congestion or your usual mode across continents. If you’re crossing into other countries, Flexport customs brokers help clear goods before they hit the border.

Potential trucking carriers are assessed on fleet size, safety rating, vehicle maintenance operations, driver history, insurance, preferred lanes, and preferred cargo. Carriers are provided operational tools and training on how to communicate milestone updates to Flexport. Communication in the Platform is done by combining driver updates in the mobile app with automated data streams like GPS data and geofencing.
