Landstar System announced the launch of its mobile app for Smartphones to provide BCOs, agents and employees the ability to search for loads or agents and perform status updates via mobile devices. The free app is available for download at the iPhone App Store, Android Market and Windows Phone Marketplace.
“As more and more of our independent business capacity owners and agents started using their mobile devices to conduct load searches, we started developing an app to make it easier for those users,” says Larry Thomas, vice president and chief information officer. “The mobile site mimics the intranet site that Landstar BCOs use to find and select freight. It’s fast and user-friendly.”
Utilizing the new app, users can identify Landstar available loads using specific and various search criteria, plus view load details including stops, accessorials and revenue breakdown. App features include user-controlled search favorites for repetitive and efficient searching, plus the ability to enter freight bill related status updates for in-transit, arrival/departure locations, loading/unloading and delivery time. Users also can set the load origin search criteria and in-transit location to their current location using their phone’s GEO locator.
