Gravity Expands Its Offering With A New Real TIme Shipment Tracking Solution
New technology solution to enhance logistics service providers offering delivers true real time shipment tracking and visibility through integrations, including airlines, sea carriers and port authorities.
HONG KONG – February 28, 2018 – Gravity Supply Chain, the technology company that is revolutionizing the way logistics providers, retailers and manufacturers manage their supply chains, is expanding its real time technology offering for logistics providers. With the release of Shipment Tracker, Gravity is maximizing speed and efficiency across the supply chain from booking to distribution for logistics providers and their customers. The new real time shipment tracking solution is powered by magNET-T™, the foundation of Gravity’s platform, connecting logistics providers to their customers, suppliers and partners data, as well as to airlines, sea carriers, ports and news sources providing insight into potential disruptions.
“Retailers, brands and manufacturers are demanding more from their logistics partners. Moving goods from A to B for cheaper than your competitor is no longer enough to gain your customers’ loyalty. Efficiency improvements and up to the minute tracking are becoming the expectation,” said Dave Graham, Head of Business Partnerships, Gravity Supply Chain. We’ve been helping logistics providers since 2015 win new business with our real time Purchase Order Management solution and we are excited to be able to meet our customers and prospects demands for a Gravity solution that tracks shipment a higher level from booking to distribution center.”
Shipment Tracker soft launched in mid-September to the WCA, the world’s largest network of independent freight forwarders and logistics providers, and its impact on productivity has captured the attention of many WCA members. The solution has been shown to save 30% of an operators’ time by automating a number of previously manual processes like researching and collating air and sailing schedules.
“As shipments move from one step to the next along the supply chain, there is manual keying of data between systems. If you look at just the process of making a booking, data comes from purchase orders and sailing schedules, and then it goes to freight and warehouse management systems,” said Gavin Webber, Head of Product Gravity Supply Chain. “Shipment Tracker removes data silos and thus the manual processes that come along with systems not speaking to one another. With these manual processes gone logistics providers using Shipment Tracker are seeing significant increases in productivity, while also providing their customers an elevated level of service through 24/7 access to a real time view of their shipments’ progress.”
Other product highlights catching the attention of those in the logistics industry include:
- Zero upfront costs
- Comes standard as a white label solution
- Full executional capabilities
- Control tower dashboards
- Key metric reporting
