Werner Enterprises, a transportation and logistics provider, has announced Carrier’s EDGE, its new carrier portal designed to offer increased visibility and streamline communications for Werner’s alliance carriers. Through Carrier’s EDGE, alliance carriers can gain visibility to Werner freight, book loads, maintain preferences, view tracking information, buy or sell equipment and communicate directly with Werner associates.
This portal, available for qualified carriers, launches with load offerings and other features with additional plans to introduce new capabilities throughout the year. Carriers will be able to view historical load data and insurance, upload documentation and manage available capacity. Carrier’s EDGE will also provide smart recommendations based on preferences, previous offers and loads.
“Carriers rely on real-time visibility and data to improve their operations and keep trailers full and moving,” said Derek Leathers, Vice Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Werner. “While our carriers rely on Werner’s customer service and personalized approach, they also desire a portal that will allow them to self-service when it’s convenient for them, whether that be after hours or in a time crunch. Carrier’s EDGE gives them the best of both worlds by providing the self-service technology they require and increased communication with Werner associates to support their business needs.”
“We are incredibly proud to offer an enhanced carrier experience from Werner EDGE,” said Daragh Mahon, Chief Information Officer at Werner. “Through Carrier’s EDGE, our alliance carriers can now optimize freight, streamline work processes, and manage profiles and preferences, all while being rewarded for loyalty and usage. This is only the first introduction of an improved carrier portal. Our team will be adding new features and functionality in the coming months, which will all be part of Werner’s commitment to driving the industry forward.”
