Two new integration went live during this release: RMIS and Big Roads, simplify shipper and broker compliance in a single pane of glass, as well as capacity to track shipment across the US with positional data.

It also includes the usual fixes and enhancements.

Registry Monitoring Insurance Services (RMIS)

An integration to RMIS data has been added allowing customers to import carrier data from this monitoring 3rd party vendor. You will need to have an existing relationship and account with RMIS in order to activate the service within Shipwell.

Customers will be able to set up this integration on their own by accessing the RMIS tile on the Manage > Company > Integrations page.

Integrated RMIS data includes:

  • DOT and MC Numbers
  • FMCSA Safety Rating
  • Operating Authority
  • Insurance Policy Information
  • Policy Effective and Expiration Dates
  • Policy Limits
  • Policy Ratings
  • RMIS Certification Status

Big Roads ELD

ELD providers can now allow Shipwell to receive ELD locations from Big Roads equipped carriers. Contact you Shipwell representative for more details.

Quick view Shipment documents

A new column has been added to the Shipment Dashboard that allows users to select a quick view icon to access all documents associated with the shipment. Document types can include Rate Confirmations, Bills of Lading, Invoices, or any other document tied to the shipment.

Create new power units

On the Shipment Details screen, in the Carrier & Equipment card, the user has the ability to edit the assigned Power Unit for the shipment. This option will display a list of all Power Units set up by the carrier and stored in their Manage > Equipment > Power Units list.

If the Power Unit is not available in the carrier’s list, the user has the ability to enter in and assign a new Power Unit to the shipment. When this happens, the new Power Unit will be added to the carrier's equipment list and be available to be assigned to future shipments. The carrier point of contact will be sent an email notification informing them who added the power unit and letting them know it has been added to their equipment list.

Load board default filter set to next 7 days

In order to speed up the performance of the Load Board, the initial default filter is set to 7 days. The user still has the ability to customize the Pickup Date range when viewing the Load Board, but the initial value will now default to 7 days. This is indicated near the filter icon when the user first enters the screen.

Notifications for Trailer ID change

When a trailer ID is added to a shipment, or if an existing trailer ID is changed on a shipment, the system will generate an email notification with the new trailer information. This email will be sent to the user who created the shipment, as well as all the stop points of contact associated with the shipment. If there are multiple POC’s for a location on the shipment, all of the contacts will receive the email notification.

Global search includes custom data fields

Global search functionality for custom data has been extended to orders.

You can now search across the platform for any custom data fields that have been created and applied to the following objects:

  • Shipments
  • Company
  • Orders

Emails include custom stop data

Custom stop data is now included in emails that are generated from the platform.

Search Shipments and Orders by person

You now have the ability to search for shipments that were created by certain individuals by entering the name in the Created By filter on the shipment dashboard.

For orders, multiple users can be entered into the Created By filter.

Charge types in financials dropdown

Line items, Team Driver and Layover have been added to the category dropdown within the shipment financials section.

Add order name field to orders

Users now have the ability to define an order name for Orders that are created. This is an optional field that will further help users identify their orders.

Add customer filter to Shipment dashboard

A filter has been added to the Shipment Dashboard that allows a user to view shipments by Customer. This is important to carriers who are partnered with more than one Shipwell customer and would like users to view only shipments from certain customers.

Stop status controls now on the dashboard

Stop Status quick actions have been added to the Dashboard Side Panel for easily updating Shipments without having to open up each individual Shipment.

Email contact with routing guides expire

Routing Guides may have start and end dates associated with them. If the Routing Guide should not be used past the end date, an email digest is sent out weekly to notify an administrator of all Routing Guides that will reach the end date in the next month.

The email lists all Routing Guides that are approaching the defined end date and links directly to the Routing Guides so the administrator can rectify the issues immediately.

Email contact with routing guides become unexecutable

When a Routing Guide has an issue (e.g., a contact in the system is removed but on several Routing Guides), those guides may not properly execute. Additionally, it may not be immediately known that a Routing Guide was compromised.

Now, email digests are sent out daily to notify a defined administrator that there are issues on one or more guides.

The email lists the Routing Guides that have issues, the step the issue is on, and what the problem is. The email also links directly to the Routing Guides so the administrator can rectify the issues immediately.
