HADDONFIELD, N.J. - Nov. 11, 2019 - PRLog -- Tucker Company Worldwide today announced it has digital, GPS-based tracking on 89.6% of its truckload shipments, a result of the company's commitment to reaching 100% visibility by early 2020.
As America's oldest privately held freight brokerage, Tucker Company is non-asset based, and has long prided itself on its track and trace procedures, thorough communication, and on-time pick-up and delivery performance. The dawn of the ELD mandate and the emergence of robust GPS-based visibility tools in trucking has opened new doors to connect with carriers and has accelerated Tucker's approach to shipment tracking.
"Gone are the days of tracking freight through a game of 'whisper down the lane,'" said Jeff Tucker, CEO of Tucker Company Worldwide. "By digitally connecting to our diverse carrier base, we offer our customers real-time location updates, predictive data, and better insights into their businesses. We're finding savings, identifying costly behaviors and trends, and improving lane performance."
But while the company is committed to tracking 100% of its shipments in 2020, Tucker has made it clear that digital visibility is just the beginning.
"Tracking every shipment is a milestone to reach, not our end goal," he explains. "Once we're connected, we'll integrate other mission-critical data like temperature, security, humidity, and whatever else our customers demand. The opportunities are endless."
