EDEN PRAIRIE, MINN.– C.H. Robinson has announced the release of Navisphere Carrier, a new mobile app designed to support contract motor carriers and their business. C.H. Robinson said the new app is expected to immediately improve the access of the current users of the company’s former app, CHRWTrucks, and provide access to the tens of thousands of loads C.H. Robinson books daily.
The on-demand technology was built with contract carriers for contract carriers to support the more than 50,000 small carrier businesses C.H. Robinson works with. The technology is available on Apple and Android mobile devices, offering accessibility, increased connectivity to drivers, expanded planning capabilities and expedited payment processes, said the company.
“We recognize that time is money to our contract carriers. And with the streamlined workflow we provide through the Navisphere Carrier mobile app, we expect to help our contract carriers reduce the amount of time they spend booking loads and submitting updates,” said Kevin Abbott, vice president of North American surface transportation, truckload.
“Through this app, we are helping contract carriers find and secure loads more quickly, thereby helping them meet their business goals.”
The app also gives greater functionality of C.H. Robinson’s single global technology platform, Navisphere, to contract carriers, said the company. Navisphere enables carriers to support the world’s supply chains and is connected to the company’s carrier representatives who work with contract carriers to move North America’s Freight.
“We are excited to release this industry leading app accelerating our carriers’ advantage. We are focused on extending our technology ecosystem to drive increased efficiency and functionality for our customers and contract carriers,” said Chad Lindbloom, chief information officer.
