Today, we added a new capability to Carrier Web so carriers can now upload Bills of Lading (BOLs) directly from their computer, in addition to the Convoy mobile app. Carrier Web is an online tool for carriers and their office staff to centrally manage paperwork, assign loads to drivers, and track payment status.
BOLs have traditionally been submitted through antiquated tools like faxes, emails, and even physical mail. The result is a slow and inefficient process that forces carriers to wait weeks to be paid.
At Convoy, our goal is to provide the most hassle free experience for carriers, so in 2015 we introduced mobile BOL uploads to streamline document processing and ensure payment is sent within 2 business days via free Convoy Quickpay™ with no fees.
As our carrier base has grown, larger carriers have told us they want the same convenience but need to centrally manage BOL submission across their fleet of drivers. To help, we’ve enabled BOL uploading on Carrier Web, for easy tracking of which BOLs have been submitted and to ensure quick payment.
“Managing paperwork is such a hassle but with Convoy’s mobile app and website, I can upload documents easily. Once it’s uploaded, I know it will get to where it needs to go, and I’ll get paid within a couple days.” — Juan, accounting department at National Transportation Services
