Bridge-strikes easily avoided with SaaS

Covid-19 has not eliminated all other supply chain management hazards. Even though operating methods are changing to accommodate Covid-19-related requirements, other typical transport hazards can also be avoided through the use of an SaaS supply chain management solution. All safety concerns, real-world and/or IT-related, should still be addressed.


A typical example is that ‘bridge-strikes’ do not need to continue to be a fact of life. A SaaS solution like CarrierNet can effectively eliminate bridge strike because:

  1. It ensures that routes provided to drivers are safe for their vehicles and also …

  2. Takes into account real-time traffic

  3. Safe detours can be provided so …

  4. Drivers only have to focus on transport requirements

  5. All loads/vehicle details/etc., are maintained by the company so …

  6. They are not the responsibility of the driver

  7. Managers are immediately informed of detours and so can provide assistance in real-time

  8. Customers may be updated with up-to-the-minute real-time information

  9. Routes and detours driven are both recorded in the TMS so are available for any form of enquiry
