C.H. Robinson has announced the launch of its NavisphereÂ® Driver mobile app in Europe, designed to allow drivers to view and update information on their loads while on the road, the company said.
The app automatically submits required in-transit updates and enables drivers to scan and upload documents to expedite payment processes.
The mobile application, available for iPhoneÂ® and AndroidÂ® devices in the App Store and on Google Play, was designed specifically for drivers. It delivers load assignments through easy SMS text notifications. It uses geo-fence updates and the phone´s location service to automatically submit near real-time load updates each hour, or more frequently if the shipper requires it. Tracking lasts for the life of the load. Finally, the driver can use the phone´s camera and the app to scan and upload paperwork to begin the payment cycle.
