WIN gives forwarders a mobile edge

Published: Saturday, August 6, 2016

WIN has launched a new mobile application platform to give independent forwarders a mobile edge.
The app features real-time track and trace, an interactive agent directory, instant messaging, route checking and shipment status tools allowing users to track and update status on any shipment including proofs of delivery or pictures of damaged cargo.

A version of WIN Mobile branded for individual freight forwarders to distribute to their end-customers is also available.

“Forwarders already using WIN to work electronically with partners and carriers now can now multiply the value of the information exchanged in WIN, and securely provide shipment visibility their own customers,” said John DeBenedette, Managing Director, WIN.

“WIN is all about giving independent freight forwarders an edge. Now we have extended this to the mobile frontier.”
Craig Chapman, Air Export Manager of ATM Transports SA, Switzerland said it was refreshing to have the possibility to check flight schedules and tracking facilities “under one roof”.

“The phone application is particularly well made and very helpful while out of the office or while discussing certain shipment details in meetings with clients,” he said.
