In recent years, technology has become an increasingly critical component for logistics providers in the industry. A source stated, “The hottest innovations in logistics and supply chain technologies right now may not be the newest, but it’s the tech that continues to get sharpened and more sophisticated.” Grasshopper is an industry-leading logistics management system that offers technology solutions for shipping heavy goods to thousands of carriers. Whether you’re an LTL, FTL, or a final-mile network, here are four ways you can use Grasshopper to improve your revenue per truck.
Real-time tracking + Communication

With Liveview however, Grasshopper’s live map system, you can access a holistic view of all your trucks across the country- including specific hubs, products, order status, customer information, etc. with interactive tools to manage across different locations. Look out for time-frame delay alerts and issues before the day of delivery so you can forecast your routes and make any adjustments to optimize your delivery trips per truck. You can also customize your notifications in your account settings to inform you of every critical load movement and freight position- from receiving, item on hold, ETA change, etc. Make smart decisions with data-driven solutions at your fingertips.
WMS + Integrated End-to-End Visibility
Keep track of what’s coming in and out of your warehouse with Grasshopper’s General Inventory Management System (GIMS).

Spend less time counting and make more deliveries happen, with higher sales in your business revenue.

With Grasshopper, you can maximize your vehicle capacity by combining shipments from different customers onto a single truck while keeping most other routes undisturbed.
