News Facts

- Vector released contactless solutions available to all sectors of the supply chain

- Vector’s platform aims to restore industry-wide interoperability and create an open standard for contactless pickup and delivery

- Contactless solutions target health and safety concerns across supply chain partners

Enhanced Contactless Pickup and Delivery Solutions

Contactless eBOL: An end-to-end solution that digitizes paper BOLs and enables contactless pickups and deliveries, thus enhancing visibility and unlocking efficiency gains by removing manual processes associated with paperwork, all while ensuring the resiliency of the supply chain and the safety of supply chain workers.

Mobile Capture: An easy-to-use mobile application that automatically captures, crops and enhances paperwork so the driver doesn’t have to. Auto-assist ensures drivers of all abilities are uploading perfect digital copies, regardless of lighting, faint print, or backdrops.

Driver Workflow: A quick and easy solution that minimizes duplicate data entry and audits by pulling information directly from company telematics and TMS, easily running calculations and sending important information directly into pre-existing AP systems.

Executive Viewpoint

"In order to establish a more resilient and safe supply chain in light of the pandemic, shippers, carriers, retailers and other participants must adopt a contactless solution, moving away from in-person interactions and paper transfers," said Vector VP of Design Darren Chan. "Physical paperwork, while the tried and true form of communication, has proven inadequate across the industry. Implementing Vector's contactless solutions provides safer and more efficient capabilities for shippers, carriers and, notably, drivers than any product on the market."
