Sun Logistics Enhances Visibility and Efficiency with DDC FPO
DDC Sync mobile data capture solution is improving Bill of Lading accuracy for the first and last mile LTL services provider
Evergreen, CO– DDC FPO, a provider of business process solutions for the logistics and transportation industry, recently announced the implementation of the cutting-edge DDC Sync mobile data capture solution for Sun Logistics, a leading first and last mile LTL services provider in NYC and South Florida. The strategic move by Sun Logistics aims to significantly enhance the visibility and accuracy of bill of lading (BOL) information throughout its network.
"We selected DDC Sync to elevate our network service level by gaining early access to critical pick-up data, empowering us to plan and optimize more efficiently,” said Nathaniel Klein, COO of Sun Logistics. “With instant access to high-quality BOL images, we can make informed decisions and initiate billing prior to our drivers returning to the terminal.
“This proactive approach enables us to cross-dock freight promptly and optimize outbound loads throughout our network,” Klein added. “DDC Sync's effortless usability for drivers, combined with the enhanced visibility and accuracy it provides, significantly reduces friction and operational costs."
Sun Logistics worked closely with DDC FPO and its mobile dispatch provider, Acordex, on the project. "As a result, we now receive real-time reporting and automated alerts, offering unprecedented visibility into shipments," Klein explained. “The synergy between DDC FPO and Acordex was the perfect match."
Earlier this year, DDC FPO and Acordex announced the integration of the Acordex Mobile Dispatch solution with the intuitive and automatic DDC Sync smart OCR bill of lading (BOL) capture system.
At Sun Logistics, the solutions are also integrated with FACTS freight management software from Carrier Logistics Inc. The carrier had already enabled using Acordex data for billing and order entry workflow processes in FACTS and will input BOL information from DDC Sync into the software earlier to optimize routes, loads, and equipment utilization.
DDC Sync, which operates in the background with any transportation management system (TMS), dispatch, or routing solution, can be built by DDC FPO for any platform provider. DDC Sync is a native Android app that transmits data. Designed specifically for freight operations, its imaging capabilities provide enhanced document control and data retrieval, as well as validation before the data is sent to a carrier’s TMS or dispatch software.
