Ship.Cars: AI-Powered Transportation Management System

Ship.Cars Introduces AI-Powered Transportation Management System

SmartHaul TMS uses sophisticated algorithms and predictive modeling to provide carriers with the right loads at the right time.

Ship.Cars announced that the company has launched its AI-powered SmartHaul TMS transportation management system. This complete smart technology platform incorporates a full suite of features using data-driven insights, machine learning and artificial intelligence tools to save time, increase efficiency, meet consumer demand, and drive carrier profitability.

Auto transport remains a critical lynchpin for the automotive industry, serving as the backbone of the inventory supply chain. Taking a tech-first approach that concurrently speeds dispatch and delivery processes is essential for carriers to be competitive and to keep automotive sales moving. SmartHaul TMS includes intuitive features to help company owners, dispatchers and drivers work smarter and haul faster, giving them everything they need to improve their operations. This digital platform optimizes finding a load, booking it, and processing it, helping carriers efficiently meet the needs of their shippers, including dealerships, auctions, and retail individuals.

“We are dedicated to helping carriers maximize their profits,” said Eftim Eftimov, president at Ship.Cars. “With new AI-powered tools that strengthen search, dispatch and inspection, SmartHaul TMS prepares carriers for a more profitable future.”

Leveraging real-time data and analytics, carriers can gain a competitive advantage. SmartHaul TMS uses sophisticated algorithms and predictive modeling to provide carriers with the right loads at the right time. By harnessing these intelligent capabilities, carriers can quickly make informed decisions that positively impact their bottom lines.

Key Features of SmartHaul TMS

Trip Builder. The Trip Builder feature for car haulers helps carriers and drivers work more efficiently and increases revenue. Drivers can reduce deadhead miles by seeing all potential loads on their route, swapping between load opportunities, and configuring a trip with the best dollar-per-mile value possible. In addition, optimizing trips can help reduce a truck’s carbon footprint.

AI Damage Inspection. Performing manual inspections is one of the most time-consuming tasks for drivers, making AI inspection a necessity, not a convenience. Ship.Cars integrates AI damage inspection software into a driver delivery application. While eliminating human error and producing more accurate reporting, the AI damage inspection tool reduces vehicle inspection times by up to 60%, with full condition reports sent within 30 seconds.

Mobile Load Board. The mobile Market Load Board gives drivers full access to available loads within the SmartHaul APP. With immediate access to the tools needed to effectively search, negotiate, and book loads right from a phone, it instantly elevates load bookings. A customizable search tool informs drivers of all postings and gives them access to exclusive loads available for instant booking through partnerships with shippers of all sizes, ensuring the best possible prices. In addition, the mobile load board includes an easy-to-use negotiation tool that keeps all interactions in one place and is updated in real-time.

Current TMS platforms primarily provide tools to aid carriers in their work. The SmartHaul TMS platform introduces a comprehensive suite of smart features that enhance carrier efficiency and reduce reliance on manual labor, automating tasks within the transportation management process. By minimizing manual work, SmartHaul TMS enables carriers to allocate their resources more strategically, leading to improved performance throughout the organization.

“With its advanced smart features and unwavering focus on enhancing carrier efficiency, SmartHaul TMS revolutionizes the industry, empowering carriers to achieve unparalleled levels of productivity and success,” said Vladimir Kadurin, product and operations lead at Ship.Cars. “The industry’s reaction to SmartHaul TMS has been overwhelmingly positive. Ship.Cars users are already completing nearly 50,000 monthly inspections; the Trip Builder feature has enabled nearly a 100% increase in trips created; and the mobile load board is already being used by half of all current Market Load Board users. With new technology, carriers have access to smarter, more robust features, and owner-operators can run their entire business from their phones.”

In addition, Autosled’s new one-click reassignment function saves both dispatchers and drivers significant time, especially when a change needs to be made while a vehicle is en route. Large transport companies with multiple drivers will greatly benefit from these process improvements. Autosled’s mobile application, iOS version 3.1.1, now includes a popup alert informing the driver if the load requires an enclosed trailer, contains any inoperable vehicles, or necessitates special instructions required by the shipper. This has been especially helpful as Autosled increases its coverage at ports and railyards nationwide.
