Convoy Partners with KeepTruckin to Improve Freight Visibility Through API

Digital freight network Convoy announced a partnership with KeepTruckin on an API to improve carrier and shipment visibility, according to a recent press release. Carriers in Convoy's network that currently use KeepTruckin's electronic logging devices (ELDs) will be able to opt into sharing location data with Convoy's platform, thereby improving its real-time shipment tracking capabilities and eliminating the need for driver check-in calls. The addition of ELD data gives shippers more accurate on-time pickup and delivery data about their freight, according to the release. It will act as a backup for Convoy's current tracking method, which involves drivers manually launching the company's mobile app when they pick up or drop off loads and relies on consistent cellphone service while in transit for up to date visibility.
