Outs: Eliminating Hassles from Your Logistics

  • Switching Between Multiple Platforms: Who isn’t sick of having at least 5 different software for every load function? Alvys brings integration to the forefront, eliminating the need to juggle between multiple platforms and providing a unified experience.
  • Paying 3rd Party EDI Companies and Still Having Problems: Why even bother having a TMS if you’re constantly having to swap to other software and hire third parties to build EDI connections to your shippers? That doesn’t sound like a software that does much transportation management to us! Alvys removes the middleman and ensures direct and seamless communication between you and your shipper.
  • Manually Entering E-Checks and Double-Entry: Manual data entry is a thing of the past. All that time wasted typing things up all day can be used to network and find new lanes and improve your business. With Alvys’ elimination of double-entry and automatic features, you reduce the risk of errors and improve accuracy so you can have the confidence to check one thing off your list!
  • Having to Call Drivers for the Status of Loads: Real-time visibility means no more check calls. Alvys keeps you informed, creating better communication with drivers. And! Alvys has a Driver Mobile App that truck drivers actually like!
  • Losing Time and Money to Errors: Alvys is your shield against errors. The TMS platform automatically scans for any loads that might be in trouble and alerts your staff to pay attention to those loads. By automating processes and ensuring real-time visibility, we minimize the risks associated with manual intervention. 
  • Losing Out on Loads Due to Disorganization: Disorganization is the enemy of growth. Alvys’ workflows and integrated approach pave the way for a steady increase in load volume, eliminating the chaos of disorganization.
  • Hidden Onboarding Fees: Alvys believes in transparency. Bid farewell to hidden onboarding fees and experience a straightforward, cost-effective onboarding process.
