It’s no surprise that freight visibility is at the center of the transportation industry and an important part of maintaining strong partner relationships.
Using the new Inbox module, Partner Location Sharing lets carriers share location updates from their ELD to their broker partners directly on a shared Order. Last known location updates are only shared between Rose Rocket partners using the Inbox and will update every 2 minutes.
Real-time location updates enhance partner relationships by enabling carriers to offer great customer service, and brokers to have more visibility into their freight - it's a win for everybody!
Carriers - Turn Partner Location Sharing ON
To turn on Partner Location sharing for your broker, follow one of these two methods.
Option 1: Go to the shared order. Under the map, select the 'Enable location sharing' button. This will enable location sharing for all future orders with your partner.
Option 2: If you want to enable location sharing for a customer outside of an order or enable it for multiple customers at once, you can also do this from the Customers module:
Please note, your broker has the option to request location updates from you on the shared Order. If you want to fulfil the request and allow location updates for that customer, follow the same steps above.
