Transporters can visualize the cargo transportation process using the SaaS for transporters and replace inefficient working methods with an easy and systematic management.
Vehicle owners can manage their transportation history, allocate vehicles, and receive cargo through the app for vehicle owners. With functions such as e-signing and travel route calculation, it is possible to transport more cargo.
A spokesman for Coconut Silo said, “COCOTRUCK is a platform that connects all the players in the logistics market and makes it possible for anyone to quickly and easily request cargo transportation.” He continued, “We improve the quality of logistics through independent technical capabilities, with things like big data-based automatic price quoting, travel route optimization algorithms, and real-time location-based, smart mixed shipping system.”
