Shippers and 3PLs use PRO numbers to track goods through the supply chain, but when carriers pick up shipments, these identification tags haven’t historically been automatically generated at the point of dispatch. Consumers have been demanding greater visibility into their shipments, and real-time visibility accessibility has become job number one for transportation providers. But the timely transfer of PRO numbers from carriers to shippers has constrained visibility growth.

SMC³ has also witnessed an increase in LTL bid activity generated through its Bid$ense product.
