The client, a reputed Logistics & Transportation company from Canada, approached us for a cost-effective on-demand platform for shippers and truck drivers to fulfil each other’s requirement of shipping and transporting goods to the final destination.
The directive was to develop a simple, easy customer-centric platform where the customer can book a load that would directly go to the truck driver so that it can be used as a mobile service trucking dispatch software. The client also wanted that the system should work as a scheduling dispatching software as well as serve them as a freight broker software. They also wanted the system to be SAS based so that they could rent out this freight broker software whenever required.
Having earned an enviable reputation for ourselves as experts in this domain, DreamzTech took cognizance of every need of the client and developed a customized trucking dispatch software for them. This one-of-a-kind software works by allowing customers to book or schedule freight for delivery by means of pieces or skids. The trucks are tracked using GPS truck tracking systems using Fleet.io integration, which is available to the users via Google Maps. The driver of a truck can easily view the pick-up and delivery location in this dispatch routing software.
Catering to the need of the hour, we have also integrated this Trucking Dispatch Software solution with 3rd party tools and solutions like Stripe for payment and payout, AWS SES for mailing, Twilio for SMS service, Google API for Google Maps and Fleet.io for real-time truck tracking.
As a result of our efforts, the client was able to engage 30% more users and expand their network. This eventually attracted more drivers to register and consequently led to an increased revenue.
We recognized the potential of the industry globally
Our solution was aimed to make a mark in the global transportation management system (TMS) market that was valued at $5,467 million in 2019 and is projected to reach $11,367 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 9.6% from 2020 to 2027. The transportation management system market size in North America is expected to reach a value of USD 443.72 million at a decelerating CAGR of 9.06%, during 2021-2025.
Of course, some of the major pitfalls we had to take stock of while developing this trucking dispatch software solution included the following:
