The tool allows you to:
- View railcars/shipments en route to your facility
- See cars placed at your facility
- View cars on constructive placement
- Order cars in
- Provide switching and other handling instructions
- Release cars
- Create and send electronic bills of lading.
The instructions that you submit through ShipperConnect™ automatically populates work orders for the railroad crews. This reduces the chance of communication error between you and the railroads. ShipperConnect™ also provides an automated log of all instructions sent to the railroad. This log can then be used to resolve differences with service requests and/or demurrage billing.
