Team Spotlight: Success with Success
Our Customer Success Team is Rockin'!
Customer Success requires a keen focus on growing customer volume and helping customers grow utilization across the SensorTransport family of products – Land & Expand!
We are pleased to have industry veteran John Chang joining SensorTransport to lead this critical function. John brings valuable experience from his days at Maersk and INTTRA.
"I want customers to fully realize the value of user the SensorTransport platform. One of the best ways is to do that is to ensure the drivers are using the solution. We carefully measure driver adoption across a range of metrics including: App Usage, On-time Performance, and Security. With driver adoption we unlock the value of digitized deliveries." - John Chang
Early Success in Customer Success
- Top 50 Global 3PL started in Asia and is now rolling out across (2) more countries
- Leading 3PL completed testing and rolling out to Los Angeles and Atlanta
- Global 3PL is partnering with SensorTransport to expand the solution to include a rated tender
- Top Last-Mile Delivery Logistics provider is expanding the residential POD to allow warehouse users to add a controlled warehouse receipts to shipments
John incorporates a 'Land and Expand' approach into the Customer Success process. We 'land' the customer starting them off with a single subscription. Then, once the customer digitizes their network, they 'expand' across geographies and/or into new SensorTransport solutions. It's a win-win!
A Network of Networks
We are seeing a network explosion!
Our customers realize their networks have intrinsic value. As they digitize deliveries, they extend their operations into the hands of the people doing the work. SensorTransport benefits by becoming a network of our customer networks.
350% increase of delivered shipments in our system from Q2 to Q3. This includes all shipments globally, but we are seeing the fastest network penetration in North America.
Pictured above are successful North American deliveries in September 2019.
As the network grows, the Network itself becomes an asset for SensorTransport customers. Shippers seeking capacity are finding qualified carriers via the marketplace. Carriers opt-in to be visible to shippers in the Carrier marketplace. Winning new business from Shippers is an important incentive for Carriers to drive adoption and digitize deliveries.

Our Customer Success manager John Chang spoke on the Maritime Innovation panel for this event in New Jersey.

John eased some of their worries by speaking on the success and implementation of our solution.
