“This enhancement does more than just automate a paper bill of lading,” says Frank Hurst, president of Roadrunner Freight. “The LTL industry is dominated by paper and manual processes, and this new capability will transform the way that shippers and carriers communicate.”
Roadrunner Freight’s new technology enables LTL shippers to automate shipping processes and goes even further by enabling digital rate requests, Bill of Lading creation, document sharing, shipping label creation and pickup requests through a single API call.
Roadrunner Freight, a business unit of Roadrunner Transportation Systems, Inc., has digitized the paper Bill of Lading process through advanced API connectivity, providing a solution to a common obstacle for less-than-truckload (LTL) shippers. This new integration will enable customers to electronically submit shipping documents and improve the quality of data throughout the pickup request process.
