ST Preparing to Roar in the Roaring ’20s

New decade, new frontiers. 2020 is the year of growth for SensorTransport as we scale our apps, platform, and commercial strategy for accelerated global adoption. With the industry embracing the digitization of deliveries at an increasing rate, our vision of an interconnected network of drivers is more attainable than ever. Here we go!

We don’t plan on taking over the world, but we do plan on helping you move things around it!

As our platform grows globally (introduction in Asia and Africa) we are making some improvements. The following updates are either completed or underway:

  1. Switch to using HERE maps for better global accessibility and deployment, including China
  2. Estimated Arrival Time Notifications (see the screenshot below) - Consignees and Receivers can get automated SMS notifications based on a shipment’s estimated arrival time in addition to a shipment’s real-time location and configurable geo-fences.
  3. Dynamic Ping Frequency - PING frequency can now be configured in the Command Console company profile. This will make it dynamic based on the available assigned shipments.
  4. Pickup/Delivery Process Enhancement
  5. Adding the ability for the user to add POD name and attach document photo on the pickup/delivery process flow.
  6. Shipment date range - Shipment list now will show “start’ and “to” date, if available, for multi-day shipments.
