Transportation tech leader helps shippers and carriers digitize operations with contactless shipping documentation
HOUSTON –March 1, 2021 – PCS Software (PCS), a leading AI-driven transportation management platform provider for shippers, carriers and brokerages in North America, is making the supply chain safer and more efficient with new contactless, paperless bills of lading (BOL) and proof of delivery (POD) functionality added to its TMS platform. From electronic document management to touchless facility gate access, PCS customers can now manage these formerly paper-based workflows directly from their mobile device.
Paper-based logistics process have long been a barrier to digitization within the transportation logistics industry. While much of logistics management has been automated, the documentation exchanged by shippers, carriers and their consignees has been a difficult process to digitize, causing inefficiencies like delays, driver error, redundant efforts and lost productivity. In fact, a 2020 report from McKinsey & Co. found 85% of senior supply-chain executives surveyed struggled with inefficient digital technologies.
This, coupled with an increased demand for more sanitary and safer workplaces amid COVID-19, has created a renewed importance in prioritizing contactless, digital-driven operations.
PCS Software solutions digitize the documentation process between shippers, carriers and consignees to ensure that pickups and deliveries are processed quickly and contact-free using the mobile app provided as part of the platform.
By removing paper from each touchpoint in the process, transportation leaders increase logistics automation levels, which saves time, money and effort, all while keeping drivers and receivers safe. Companies that implement contactless documentation and digitize their supply chain process could see a 50% reduction in supply chain costs and a 10% increase in revenue.
“While the need for paperless, contactless processes may have increased because of the pandemic, there’s no doubt that the industry will continue to trend towards digitization and advancing its role in the supply chain,” said Paul Beavers, chief technology officer at PCS Software. “PCS Software recognizes this need and has made it a priority for the future of our platform.”
