Car-shipping platform Super Dispatch has launched Touchless Delivery, stating it is a response to help carriers and their families stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Super Dispatch connects auto transport industry professionals such as shippers, brokers, and carriers with software to help them move cars faster while managing and growing their businesses. Touchless Delivery is a feature within the free Super Dispatch app that the company says “is just the beginning of enabling the auto transport industry to move cars smarter in a post COVID-19 world.”
Touchless Delivery is the newest feature within Super Dispatch’s car hauling app and is available for all app users. The company says that with the click of a button, the free app makes completion of the bill of lading faster.
The driver can stay safe on the road with the app by selecting “Touchless Signature” when prompted for pickup and delivery signature. Once that is selected, the app sends a text message with a link for the pickup or delivery contact to sign and submit a signature. Upon completion, the bill of lading is automatically updated with the signature.
The Super Dispatch team saw the safety challenges carriers face during COVID-19 and spoke to customers about their needs to stay on the road safely. Super Dispatch’s engineering and product teams participated in a “development sprint” to provide its customers with a safe product.
Super Dispatch chief executive officer Bek Abdullayev said in a news release that companies using Super Dispatch “had an easy transition to working from home,” but driver safety was still a concern for Super Dispatch. Drivers, Abdullayev said, “are essential workers and nothing gets shipped without them.” Super Dispatch introduced Touchless Deliveries “to further our commitment to making it safe,” Abdullayev said.
The company expressed the importance of drivers’ ability to “work without a threat to the health of themselves, their coworkers, and their families,” touting Touchless Delivery as “the smart solution for the auto transport industry to keep moving forward.”
