Blume Global Reveals Next Generation Solutions for Motor Carriers Around the World to Increase Revenue, Improve Operations and Reduce Costs
Blume CarrierGo™ Is a Free, Single On-the-Go Solution Powering Collaboration & Efficiency in Operations, Finance and Customer Service
LONG BEACH, Calif. — Sept. 16, 2019 — Blume Global, a leader in global logistics and digital supply chain solutions, today released Blume CarrierGo™. This solution, based on a single platform, is created for global drayage motor carrier companies and their drivers. The Blume CarrierGo™ platform and mobile application creates operational efficiency, better fleet utilization and freight queuing, improves customer service, and creates a positive financial impact for motor carrier companies around the world, by directly connecting proof of delivery, invoicing and financial settlement processes.
Blume CarrierGo™ is a solution for motor carriers to effectively manage their end-to-end business operations, from accessing new business, managing orders and tendering loads, to handling rates and invoices. It is a transportation execution system that enables communication between motor carriers and their LSP, ocean carrier and shipper customers. It also improves visibility and transparency across global supply chains.
Motor carriers around the world continue to rely on paper-based, manual processes to accept or reject, execute and invoice bookings, preventing motor carriers from maximizing business opportunities, optimizing driver utilization and collecting payment with minimal disputes.
Blume CarrierGo™ brings automation to the traditional process, expediting time between invoicing and carrier payment. Blume CarrierGo™ is available for free to all motor carriers globally, which also allows those carriers to access new business as a part of the Blume Global network. The Blume Global Customer Service Group has been working with motor carriers for decades to ensure a seamless onboarding process so they can receive value quickly.
Moving from a manual to a digital process gives businesses the power to be more efficient and cost effective, making them a better choice for their customers. The platform also gives customers the ability to provide more accurate visibility, improve collaboration, manage issues and reach new levels of efficiency, better positioning them to be the carrier of choice for their customers.
Blume CarrierGo™ eliminates manual processes, streamlines transportation order management, including the ability to accept and reject contracts digitally. Participation in a ML- driven interactive marketplace enables carrier to selectively grow their business and access the Blume Shipper Network.
Blume CarrierGo™ improves the efficiency of finance applications such as freight audit and pay, sends completed invoices faster, initiates rate management, enables users to increase revenue by participating in spot markets within the Blume network, and increases driver and fleet efficiency by reducing idling time.
Blume CarrierGo™ provides real-time visibility to customers, allowing for greater exception management. It provides proof of delivery and dispatches invoices quickly. It also enables greater collaboration and management of issues across the Blume network.
“Our goal is to better enable every aspect of the supply chain, and motor carriers are a critical component of that ecosystem. Blume CarrierGo™, with both the business application and driver application, can transform end-to-end operations and revolutionize the motor carrier business,” said Pervinder Johar, CEO, Blume Global. “This solution is designed to specifically address motor carriers’ greatest challenges, while helping them grow their business through the Blume network, which has been evolving for 25 years.”
