The truck brokerage and global logistics company C.H. Robinson Worldwide has released a mobile app to extend the reach of its new Navisphere transportation management platform to allow users to access critical shipment information with Apple or AndroidTM mobile devices.

. App users can view detailed shipment information by searching via pickup or drop off dates, container, customer reference, or C.H. Robinson load numbers. In addition, users are able to view a shipment's events, imaged documents, and can email their account representative with questions on a particular move.
“Supply chains are constantly in motion, so having continuous visibility to each movement is a requirement for logistics professionals,” said Tom Mahlke, chief information officer at C.H. Robinson, in a statement. “The Navisphere app gives customers another method to stay connected and informed on all their shipments.”
In November 2011, C.H. Robinson introduced its CHRWTrucks.com mobile app geared towards carriers and other providers. The carrier app allows a truckers to enter critical shipment information, such as check calls and delivery information, as well as post empty equipment locations. - Eric Johnson
