MAKE SMARTER SUPPLY CHAIN DECISIONS, FASTER

We use machine learning to examine massive volumes of internal and external data, capturing over 1,000 data points for each shipment. This analysis generates a level of supply chain visibility that was never before possible, helping shippers improve their forecasts, adjust to market shifts, and respond to operational problems. 

Real-time tracking on every truckload

Gain 24/7, real-time visibility into every load you ship with Convoy. We provide total transparency, from initial tender to final delivery. No more time wasted tracking down trucks.

Improve downstream supply chain operations by informing your entire team and customers with shipment status that’s accurate to the minute. Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your shipment is on schedule.

View trends and spot anomalies

Since 2015, we’ve collected over 16 terabytes of shipment and operations data. That’s the equivalent of more than 104 million pages of Microsoft Word documents. We use machine learning to analyze this data, yielding insights that were previously undiscoverable.

These insights can unlock significant savings across your supply chain. By providing automated reports, dynamic tools, and custom insights, we’ve helped shippers:

  • Reduce detention costs at problematic facilities
  • Uncover the root causes behind spiking incidentals
  • Improve carrier preference for shipper facilities

Free white paper: Supply Chain Visibility and the Digital Freight Network

Many shippers lose visibility of their freight as soon as trucks leave their docks. Convoy’s digital freight network provides a solution. Data and analytics shed light on hidden inefficiencies and arm your logistics team with insights to improve supply chain operations.

Convoy’s white paper explores how network insights help shippers:

  • Optimize operational spend
  • Improve facility performance
  • Reduce carbon emissions

Uncover what’s going on at your facilities

Beyond tracking on-time pickup (OTP), delivery (OTD), and wait times to the minute, Convoy also encourages carriers to provide detailed feedback on their experience at facilities. Drivers use our mobile app to input feedback on facility service, communication, amenities, and more. This combination of quantitative and qualitative feedback can reveal problems at facilities and provide opportunities for improvement.

See what’s driving incidental costs

We provide statistics and benchmarks on incidentals to help capture your total cost to ship. Review breakdowns of detention, lumper, TONU, layover, redelivery spend, and overall incidental spend over time. Compare your incidentals with similar shippers in your industry and against the rest of Convoy’s network of shippers.

By measuring the key drivers of incidentals, you can determine where to make better supply chain decisions that reduce total transportation costs.

Track your progress towards sustainability targets

We make it our mission to eliminate waste in transportation. Central to this mission is lowering carbon emissions from empty freight miles. Our automated load batching yields a 45% decrease in CO2 emissions from empty trucks, helping you ship responsibly and meet your sustainability goals.

As part of our network insights, we provide a detailed assessment of your year-to-date environmental impact, including the amount of carbon emissions saved through the use of automated batching, green appointments, and fuel savings.

Easy integration with supply chain visibility platforms

If you use FourKites, Project44, Trimble 10-4, or Macropoint, you can track your Convoy shipments right alongside your other carriers. We’ve done the integration for you, so real-time visibility into your Convoy shipments through these services works right out of the box.
