Estes has been named the winner of the SCV Innovation of The Year award for its industry-leading Pickup Visibility application by SupplyTech Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization. SupplyTech Breakthrough conducts its annual awards program by evaluating and recognizing standout technology companies, products, and services in the supply chain technology and logistics industry. This year’s SupplyTech Breakthrough Awards program drew more than 1,400 nominations from over 15 different countries.
Estes’ Pickup Visibility application earned the company an Innovation of the Year award for making Estes the first carrier in the industry to provide shippers with a detailed line of sight to their freight from the time they schedule their pickup through delivery. The application’s intuitive, user-friendly interface features an easy-to-use visual progress bar that displays important pickup milestones in real time, including pickup exceptions and real-time “Stops Away” updates as well as an Estimated Time of Pickup.
“In featuring the industry’s most comprehensive pickup data, Estes is putting all the real-time information shippers need right at their fingertips and improving the entire shipping experience,” said Bryan Vaughn, Managing Director of SupplyTech Breakthrough Awards. “By equipping shippers with the industry’s most comprehensive, real-time pickup data through innovative new technology, Estes Pickup Visibility makes it easier for shippers to manage their freight every step of the way.”
“We’re honored to accept the SCV Innovation of the Year award from SupplyTech Breakthrough, said Carrie Johnstone, Estes Vice President of Customer Experience and Innovation. “Because most freight transportation issues begin at pickup, we wanted to bring peace of mind to customers during this most critical stage of the freight shipping process, and we couldn’t be prouder of the application’s success.”
