For each shipment to be tracked, initiate tracking when moving towards container pick-up location by entering shipment id, container number(s) (typed or scan/OCR), and click on milestone icons (container picked up, departing warehouse etc) as they occur.

How does the truck driver know which shipments to track?

Request shipment tracking via Last Mile Container Tracker, when requesting dispatch.

What does it cost?
