Freight Visibility: The Key to
We want to help your company become more flexible and more efficient. We come
from the supply chain world and understand the importance of freight tracking
and logistics. In fact, BOLT is an acronym for Best On-Line Tracking! When you
can accurately track of where all your equipment and freight are, where
they were, and where they will be, then your business will be in top form.
Bolt also provides a Customer Portal Option, where you can selectively allow your
customers the ability to log into your system and view the details of their
shipments – whether they are scheduled, in-transit, or delivered. You can also
provide automated emails with delivery ETAs, based on data from your vehicles’
“Most of our competitors concentrate on
tracking the truck, which limits what you
can do against Amazon… BOLT provides the flexibility needed to give you that
Supply Chain Optimization for Transportation
BOLT was designed as a supply chain module that fills in a missing gap –
transporting of finished goods from manufacturer to consumer. Whether inbound,
outbound, or third party loads, all relevant information is displayed and
readily available. BOLT gives you the capability to integrate with your
Corporate ERP system and allows for updating of In-Transit Inventory with
Enterprise Inventory Management for raw goods, work-in-progress, or finished
We have seen it many times – management uses BOLT to examine routes and
performance, and discovers ways to increase efficiency and delivery speed. They
may, for example, look at the available data and determine that there are better
ways to make a last mile delivery – such as utilizing a local or regional
carrier, rather than relying on a 53-foot trailer and tractor. With insights
like this, BOLT helps even small companies compete against industry titans.
“BOLT has made the decision to support a
mix of devices… Our objective is to help you find the best price/performance
solution to your fleet management issues.”
Handle Multiple Channels With Ease
As online sales continue to explode, growing and sustaining multiple sales
channels can be overwhelming for shippers. Most truck-based freight movements
are either “1 pick / 1 drop” or “1 pick / multi-drops.” Ever since Amazon, this
is not acceptable to the average consumer. They expect next day delivery, and
they expect it at their home address.
Using older methods, these demands are getting increasingly hard to meet while
maintaining profitability. Time, cost, and profitability must be recorded,
documented and incorporated into the overall cost for each SKU or material unit.
BOLT gives you the means to achieve next-day delivery through multi-channel
distribution, while properly tracking costs every step of the way.
