Ship.Cars, a provider of software solutions for the car-hauling industry, released a host of new features to support auto transport for auctions and dealers. A practical addition to its LoadMate Pro, Driveaway digitalizes and brings efficiencies to the dispatch and transportation process for short-distance, single-vehicle shipments. Auctions and dealers can experience LoadMate Pro's Driveaway for themselves this month.
Driveaway empowers shippers to create and dispatch loads directly to their own Driveaway drivers and get digital updates within the LoadMate Pro platform. Driveaway reduces manual processes and the need for old-fashioned tools to save time and increase transparency during the dispatch and transportation of shipments. After creating their loads, auctions can automate the dispatch process, assigning vehicle identificaiton numbers directly for the Driveaway driver of their choice, making dispatch quicker, easier and paperless. Onboarding drivers is a seamless process that takes only a couple of minutes to set up.
Additionally, the feature supports auction/driver interactions post-dispatch. It makes instantaneously available for the auction all pickup, delivery and additional information the driver is processing.
Managing drivers has long been a challenge and a completely manual process, and giving auctions a solution to it allows them to spend their time and money on value-added activities, all while improving the overall transportation experience.
