Coming Soon: ShipmentVision Capacity Manager
Exciting enhancements are coming soon to our advanced shipment tracking platform, ShipmentVision. Starting this spring, Loup will offer Capacity Manager, a new functionality that gives customers unprecedented visibility to their inbound rail cars across all rail carriers. Capacity Manager is being rolled out now on a limited basis and will be available for a wider audience in early 2018.
Staying Ahead of Customer Needs
Capacity Manager was designed in direct response to a need our counterparts at Union Pacific Railroad identified in the marketplace, particularly for plastics customers: With expected increases in production, these customers would have more and more rail cars headed to their facilities. In order to properly manage their inbound capacity and keep product flowing smoothly, they’d need to know how many rail cars would be arriving each day and what that means for their pipeline.
Knowing this challenge was ahead for their customers, the Union Pacific team came to their resident logistics experts at Loup with an important question: How could we give customers a way to better manage their inbound capacity?
The answer: Capacity Manager. This new functionality offers:
- Enhanced ability to control pipeline health
- Visibility across rail carriers in a single view
- Optimized ETAs
- Customizable dashboards and reporting
