Echo Global Logistics Launches EchoDrive, a Carrier App and Web Portal with Access to Echo's Private Load Board, on New EchoAccelerator Platform
"Echo was founded on the concept that through our disruptive technology we could simplify transportation and bring efficiencies into the huge and highly fragmented transportation market," said
EchoDrive gives carriers the ability to book, manage, and get paid on freight hauled for Echo. The platform's load management tool and document upload capabilities streamline operations, keeping dispatchers organized and helping drivers get back on the road faster. EchoDrive users get real-time access to search, view, and bid on available freight, reducing the effort associated with finding freight for their available equipment.
"EchoDrive provides our carriers an efficient platform, available on the web and via mobile, enabling real-time visibility and driving efficiencies for our carriers to manage freight," said
Also built on the EchoAccelerator platform, EchoShip consolidates and simplifies shipping by enabling customers to build loads, store frequently used shipment information, and track shipments in real time. Shippers can also search, view, and pay all invoices using EchoShip.
Other customers commented on the clean design, user-friendly experience, and the fact that logistics teams could use EchoShip without any training. The easy-to-use intuitive technology is customized to clients' needs and driven by digital innovation and design. By automating the shipping process, EchoShip empowers shippers to focus on growing their business and is supported by Echo's reliable, 24/7, U.S.-based customer support.
"Booking shipments on EchoShip is as easy as booking flights online," said Menzel. "It's the place to find the best rates, book with a click, and automate the day-to-day tasks that otherwise consume hours. It's technology at your fingertips and experts at your side when you want them."
In addition to automating day-to-day shipments, EchoShip offers a host of tools designed just for shippers. For example, EchoShip automatically alerts shippers of potential issues such as excessive weight, expired quotes, or holiday transit delays.
EchoConnect, which is also supported by EchoAccelerator, is Echo's integration platform that enables the company to connect to thousands of shippers and carriers via Application Programming Interface (API) and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) technology.
"EchoAccelerator, which is built on our proprietary architecture and integrates with best-in-class industry technology, allows us to re-envision how technology can streamline transportation management," said
