Reliable Freight, Parcel, Logistics, and document solutions across the world with “Hub Connect”, developed by Unique Software Development.

Introduction

Hub Group connects dispatchers and carriers to transport fortunes via freight, be it LTL, FTL, LCL, or FCL. The legacy Final Mile capability is energized by its Forward Air Final Mile for services to industries like appliances, retail, automotive, etc. It owns many firms that aid in cost-effective and time-efficient supply chain operations with self-, mutual, and partner-owned carriers.

Project Idea and Goal

Although the freight and transportation industry has many players, full-scale solutions were lacking. Additionally, there was a wide gap in managed solutions regarding documentation and consolidation, especially in ecommerce. An end-to-end linking platform was the need of the hour.

In 2017, after going global through acquisitions and expansions, the objective shifted towards a central platform through a web app. Hub-Connect was the missing link, allowing all home and business owners to benefit from the broad range of premium services. Cargo, LTL optimization, FTL shipping, and final mile solutions should all be available to clients through a single web app.

Development Timeline

From concept to implementation, the project spanned from June 2017 to November 2017. During this time, meticulous planning, design, development, testing, and implementation phases were conducted.

Key Challenges

The platform was an all-inclusive unification of discovery, selection, and tracking of logistics and involved numerous integrations. However, there were many challenges in system performance optimization and external integrations.

Multimodal
Transits

A parcel could take more than one mode to the destination, so tracking becomes challenging yet essential.

Live Rate
Quotation

Building a precise quotation system involves big data sets and quick mining capabilities with computation.

Scheduling
Shipments

Customers can add or schedule new shipments in case of no match, which would execute on-demand.

Document
Consolidation

Lists and samples of shipping documents must be available to assist with consolidation.

Freight Analytics
Review

It must present visual analytics tools to aid customers in their relevant assessments for an edge.

Weather and
