Companies looking to simplify carrier qualification and safety paperwork can now receive configurable qualification standards relative to the logistics companies’ specific categories of measurement with a new solution rolled out by EBE Technologies.
Carrier CSI offers comprehensive carrier qualification through integrated workflows, contract creation and interfaces with FMCSA and other safety and financial websites, the company said. Through this integration, the process of qualifying and managing required paperwork is streamlined, helping improve accuracy and reducing time spent qualifying and contracting carriers.
“Carrier CSI was developed to fill a void for logistics companies and carriers providing logistics services,” said Larry Kerr, president. “Its ability to create, monitor, retrieve, analyze and take action on relevant carrier information offers logistics providers an extra layer of confidence when on-boarding and managing carriers. Carrier CSI’s ability to manage both data and documents allows companies to spend more time dispatching loads and less time shuffling papers and analyzing data.”
Carriers fill out an online qualification form and using web portals such as FMCSA and Dun & Bradstreet, Carrier CSI gathers the data necessary to formulate an overall carrier qualification score. Data is pulled from sources such as lanes services, equipment type, safety and financial scores.
Once the score is attained, CSI creates a carrier contract and pre-populates static data for positively ranked carriers. Carrier packets and associated paperwork is also populated, EBE said, along with the addition of barcodes to identify the paperwork.
