  • Up to date consignment (including bulk) tracking by type, grade, origin and mass.
  • Product cross-contamination prevention by confirming commodity grade and origin before loading / offloading.
  • Truck, trailer and rolling stock asset tracking and management.
  • Empty, full and overloaded trailers and wagon recording and real time notification by email or SMS message.
  • Delivery verification, preparation of invoicing information and integration with financial and management information systems.
