TUCSON, Ariz. — TransCore and TripPak SERVICES, a unit of Affiliated Computer Services, announced they will bundle document scanning and freight match services to increase convenience for brokers and third party logistics providers.
This will offer easy access to document scanning services and expedite proof-of-delivery reconciliation necessary when a driver delivers a load to when shippers ultimately provide payment, say company officials. With this technology, brokers will receive proof-of-delivery documents much quicker, which will ultimately allow them to reduce the time between shipment delivery and the invoicing of the shipper.
The agreement establishes TransCore as the exclusive reseller of ACS’ FreightForm EXPRESS, utilizing the TripPak SCANNING software and infrastructure currently in place in more than 350 full-service truck stops nationally.
“TransCore’s relationships with more than 15,000 customers are grounded on trust, service and dependability, knowing we’ll deliver products that accelerate efficiency,” said John Worthington, president of TransCore. “By linking two mainstay services and making a document scanning resource readily available to brokers, we condense a labour- and time-consuming reimbursement process and provide the ease of one-stop shopping.”
The companies aim to have the technology used by large and small transportation companies, as FreightForm EXPRESS tailors the TripPak SCANNING services to the broker marketplace, allowing a carrier to scan documents at a TripPak-equipped truck stop and quickly transmit to the broker the required paperwork.
