The D.W. Morgan Company has developed an application for the Apple iPhone, which communicates real-time shipment tracking reports and recipient signatures to its global customer base. The new application has been integrated into the company's ChainLinq Suite of transportation and inventory-management applications. D.W. Morgan will use the iPhone for enhanced electronic communications between dispatchers, drivers and warehouse personnel. The driver will receive pickup and delivery instructions via the iPhone, then use the device to file status reports and obtain an electronic signature at point of delivery. In addition, the new service integrates the iPhone's GPS features, providing the exact location of a delivery, which can then be displayed visually on a Google Earth map. The tracking data, delivery notification and imagery are available to customers in real time via the D.W. Morgan website. The company offers transportation-management and logistics services, as well as strategic consulting.
