Track Loads. Scan Trailer Barcode. Email Alerts for ETA & Traffic Events. Custom Reporting for USPS Compliance. Used by Brokers, 3PLs and Carriers
The Postal Service has instituted a new tracking GPS requirement for all US mail freight contractors which are third party logistics firms (3PL) or brokers, are using 3PLs or Brokers, or otherwise do not have their own dedicated assets.
Under this new requirement, these firms must use a certified mobile phone/tablet app based tracking solution to provide the Postal Service with timely GPS & logistics information. All vehicles with mail carrying compartments on trailers and straight body / box trucks which do not have an Orbcomm device provisioned, or cannot have an Orbcomm device provisioned, must have the driver of that vehicle download, install and use a Postal Service certified tracking app as directed.
They require the driver to download a tracking application to their smartphone or tablet.
Once the app is installed on the driver’s mobile device, it is automatically tied to an HCR or Trip (by the dispatch manager in the 3PLs back office). In addition, the app will track & report the Postal Service freight across the duration of the trip.
During each stage of a trip, the driver can be prompted to scan barcode (99T or 99V) to provide additional status and compliance information.
Logistics intelligence such as entry / exit from a postal centre, ETA to next stop etc. can also be automatically generated & reported by the system.
When the trip is completed, the app will automatically stop tracking until the driver’s next assignment. The driver can delete the app, or choose to keep the app on their phone such that it can be used for HCR / GO-Anywhere trips in the future.
