How to invite your carriers to dispatch drivers, manage documents and receive shipments through your new FreightPath Carrier Portal.
The FreightPath Carrier Portal is a powerful tool for your brokerage to work better with your carrier partners.
Using it, your team can book loads directly with your carriers, get real time track and trace, instantly fill and share paperwork, and provide free dispatching tools for drivers.
To start, just go to the carrier you'd like to invite (if you haven't added a carrier yet, check this article out for how to do it) and press the three-dot menu button on the card. From there, select "invite user". This is the email to which shipment confirmations will be sent to, and which the carrier will log in with!
Your carrier will receive an email with instructions to finish setting up their account. Once they're done, they'll be able to log into their account at app.freightpath.io and begin booking shipments directly with you.
You'll also notice a blue checkmark next to the carrier's name in your TMS once you've successfully invited them to create an account - this means that they'll receive emails for shipment confirmations, and will be able to provide real time track and trace through the FreightPath mobile app.
