If your carrier(s) have supplied you with a dispatcher system then you are enjoying most of the benefits of electronic trading and automatic generation of transport friendly freight labels.
If you have more than one carrier then it is most likely you have more than one dispatcher system.
Subsequently you have more than one PC and printer and different stationery to control. You may also have a training issue, as every dispatcher is different and not all of them are “user friendly”.
The software system may be on loan to you or you may be “renting” the software and or hardware from the carrier(s), which makes it very awkward should you decide to change carriers.
Once the carrier is no longer employed by your company it is safe to assume they will want to retrieve their system.
This can lead to many problems as to “who owns the information on the system”? It is not unusual for shippers to loose years of data under these circumstances.
Having one or numerous carrier systems also makes it more time consuming to obtain freight cost enquiries from the various systems, as well as the non-availability of reports and total expenditure by cost centres.
The carriers system has been designed to allow the shipper to process a freight transaction in the required format of that carrier. FPOS has been designed to do exactly the same for all carriers, from the one system as well as provide the shipper with many tools to control and manage the transport task.
May we suggest you compare the benefits and features of the FPOS system to your total requirements. No doubt some of your demands and requirements are not available using carrier specific systems.
We would be pleased to give you an obligation free demonstration with or without your carrier’s presence.
This free demonstration would also apply if you are already using a 3rd party dispatcher system that charges you for stationery (labels and con notes) and your carriers' for download fees.
The FPOS system is designed to use carrier stationery and supply all download files free of charge, so you could be saving thousands of dollars per annum and enjoying the many benefits using FPOS the worlds leading dispatch management system.
