Lynden Transport has improved its EZ Tracing system with the addition of GPS mapping of shipment locations while en route over the highway. By clicking on a link on the Lynden Transport website, customers can monitor their shipments on a digital map that shows the truck as it moves from origin to destination. Lynden also launched a new website, www.lyndentransport.com/ltia, redesigned based on customer feedback for easier navigation.
Jim Beck, Lynden president, said, “We plan to expand our network to include freight moving on marine vessels so our customers can see the same visibility on the water as we now offer on land.”
GPS mapping is the latest addition to Lynden’s other recent service improvement, Predictive Delivery, which provides customers up-to-date delivery times for their shipments in major services centers in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Kenai, Juneau, and Ketchikan.
The EZ Tracing GPS mapping feature is automatically engaged each time a shipment is booked through the EZ Commerce system. To sign up for Lynden’s free EZ Commerce program, go to www.lyndentransport.com/ltia and click on the “sign up now” link.
