They also stated every driver, dispatcher, and operator they hire adds tons of paperwork they need to complete and the company is looking for alternatives online to help process more cars online.
“Shippers have been searching for a viable method to rapidly replenish inventory with a few simple clicks,” the company said in a news release.
Due to these issues, Ship.Cars is introducing what they called a "powerful, omnichannel suite of products for shippers, owner-operators and brokers, and carriers with multiple trucks as well as owner-operators. The company said it is uniting the car-hauling industry around the banner of “Ship Cars Smarter.”
The company has stated it is focused on providing customer services for improved shipping. They believe they can change the overall process with how vehicles are processed, evaluated, and delivered.
Ship.Cars believes their online platform will give shippers and carries more options alongside better customer service by utilizing automation.
“Designed as a fully integratable and scalable solution for any sized business, our digital tools and platforms create seamless connections that delight customers, open markets and break down existing barriers. This ensures customers spend less time in their business, and more time on their business.”
— Ship.Cars Chief Executive Officer Ravi Adatrao
The company also claims that the auto broker and shipping market has started moving toward online services with several software applications that are believed can improve load posting and management.
Specifically the company describes Shipper TMS as a platform that facilitates auctions, dealers, and brokers to streamline paperwork, manage orders, make payments, and dispatch and delivery vehicles.
Market, their online marketplace, integrates into Shipper TMS to allow shippers and brokers to post loads and carriers to search and find them.
The company will add dealers and brokers can also use a lighter version of the load board called Shipper Lite to post about their loads. The Shipper Suite of the software will also include a pricing calculator and a quote engine.
Ship.Cars also says their Carrier Suite can be used by carriers, drivers, and operators for their transport services and their delivery mobile app, called Driver ePOD, all of which is built into their Carrier TMS platform.
They said that dispatchers will also be provided access to their Market Load Board to connect with a broker in what they describe as a “bustling online car-hauling marketplace teeming with loads.”
"This industry is primed for innovation,” Adatrao said. “We are at an inflection point. Using next-generation technology, we are creating solutions that meet the evolving demands of the auto transportation industry. Secure, transparent, reliable transactions are a must, and there is absolutely no room for uncertainty or inefficiency.”
