Montway Auto | August 02, 2022
The transportation and logistics industry has lagged in the digitalization trend that has modernized other industries. Moving vehicles through the supply chain relies on manual tasks and multiple platforms, offering dealers little sense of where in-transit vehicles are until they arrive at the lot or are checked in at auction. Montway Auto Transport, one of the nation's leading third-party logistics brokerages, launched the Montway Automation Portal (M.A.P.), a digital platform that improves efficiency for both shippers and carriers, enables visibility of inbound and outbound vehicles for better inventory management and helps control or reduce transportation costs.
"The challenges keep mounting for dealerships, auctions, rental car companies and other businesses that rely on vehicle movements and our business customers want innovations to help them gain a competitive advantage,The Montway Automation Portal provides the transparency they need to better manage inventories and increase speed to consumers."
-Mike Trudeau, Executive Vice President of Business Development at Montway Auto Transport.
M.A.P. is built on industry-leading, proprietary technology that leverages market-based pricing and a streamlined transportation management system. Users can enter a VIN or multiple VINs into the portal to receive pricing, book orders and track units in real-time to complete delivery via a user-friendly dashboard. Additionally, M.A.P. offers public tracking links users can share with end customers, on-demand pricing and a centralized location for storing digital records (proof of delivery documents, BOLs, gate passes and photos).
"Digitization is a proven way to transform businesses and auto transport is no exception. M.A.P. was designed to modernize and optimize auto transport from creating orders to providing tracking of units through to delivery,Shippers now have real-time access to their transportation data, allowing them to manage inventory as well as understand and control transportation expenses."
