Convoy and KeepTruckin will integrate freight visibility API to access location data for en-route shipments, helping carriers increase efficiencies and improve their businesses.
“We are excited to kick off a strategic, multifaceted partnership with a fellow industry leader in KeepTruckin, starting with the integration of their freight visibility API and offering discounts on critical fleet management products,” said Brooks McMahon, VP of partnerships at Convoy.
Generated by carriers in its network who use KeepTruckin’s ELDs, the information will provide additional visibility and eliminate the need for additional driver check-in calls. Carriers will have total control and must initially consent for their data to be shared between the two companies.
Convoy and KeepTruckin’s freight visibility integration will provide a secondary location proof point to augment Convoy’s shipment tracking capabilities, using data from the carrier's KeepTruckin ELD. The partnership also includes a 15% discount on KeepTruckin’s ELDs and other fleet management technology.
“We envision many opportunities in the weeks and months ahead to help carriers leverage their data to grow their businesses with a platform they’re already using to be compliant and with information that is already being generated,” said Jairam Ranganathan, SVP of product at KeepTruckin. “Now drivers can use that data for a competitive advantage—without any additional work besides opting in — to eliminate headaches, access more load opportunities, and make more money.”
