Van den Bosch introduces FreightInsight

23 July 2019 – Van den Bosch Transporten has taken a new step in supply chain connectivity. By introducing FreightInsight, Van den Bosch provides customers with real time information on the actual status of loads. The online portal also gives access to additional information, such as the expected time of arrival, previous loads and loading reports.

“With FreightInsight we meet the growing need for traceability, transparency and connectivity in the supply chain”, Pirke van den Elsen explains. As Manager Business Development at Van den Bosch Transporten, he was actively involved in developing and introducing the online customer portal. 

Real time information on orders
FreightInsight is inspired by the track and trace information you receive after ordering a package online. Van den Elsen explains: “Everyone wants to know what is happening to his or her order. That is the same in bulk transport. Thanks to FreightInsight, our customers have real time insight into their logistic flows. They can simply follow the actual status of their orders via a personal dashboard, as well as the expected and actual time of arrival. Moreover, they have access to additional information, such as previous loads, payload, loading and unloading weight, temperature and nonconformities.”



Connectivity and transparency
The introduction of FreightInsight is part of the Transforming Logistics Together campaign. Van den Bosch recently introduced an innovative package of additional logistic services under this name. One of these additional services is providing track and trace information by introducing FreightInsight. “But we are taking this one step further”, Van den Elsen continues. “It is our ambition to not only provide these data, but also make them available for further integration in our customers’ logistic systems. We call this ‘Track & Connect’. This is how we create connectivity and transparency in the supply chain together with our customers and their partners as well.”
