The Active Scout Technologies’ team is comprised of transportation risk management experts that have refined the carrier monitoring and selection process. Through the company’s newest product, Shipper Shield™, shippers’ have found the resource that allows them to monitor their supply chain risk through holistic oversight, and provides the education to make decisions to eliminate exposure and engage in safe ‘next’ practices. Active Scout was perfected by the same leadership team that successfully created and manages sister company, TranzAct Technologies, Inc. TranzAct Technologies has provided freight audit and payment, logistics services and technology to shippers for over 30 years.

Active Scout has been an industry leader in helping shippers respond to the winds of change that are occurring in the industry related to shipper liability. We recognize that many shippers lack the understanding of safety scores and other critical data that they must be abreast of when selecting the vendors they choose to do business with. Additionally, many do not have contracts for 100% of their carriers, or an easy way to organize and access the files, and don’t understand how their insurance coverage under their carriers’ may leave them vulnerable. Shipper Shield™ was designed to close this gap and provide more detailed information and reduce risk for shippers. Building partnerships with our clients that are rooted in personalized service, honesty and integrity is the foundation on which our business is built. Our proven track record and position on the pulse of the transportation industry allows us to provide valuable counsel to all of our clients.

Concierge Plan

As with anything in a business, every responsibility and task is subject to the human element. Today’s transportation, logistics and supply chain departments are as overloaded as ever. You could be dealing with a lack of available staff time; highly variable skillsets and computer comfort levels and worst of all, a worry that this is the kind of thing that could easily end up falling off the radar – when it shouldn’t! You may not be accustomed to worrying about monitoring carriers every day – but we actually are. We live and breathe this stuff! Our standard package offers adequate training and setup assistance for users that are active, involved and adequately staffed. But if you choose a concierge service plan, the relationship’s center of gravity changes a bit: Warning e-mails are accompanied by warning phone calls. Templated e-mail requests to your carriers for information become phone calls to your contact at the carrier to walk them through the process of fully participating. We regularly review your active carriers to look at them like they were our own.

As you will understand, we do not make recommendations or provide any legal advice – instead the concierge level of service puts an account manager on the task of ensuring that you are using our system the way it was intended – with some checks and balances to confirm that you’re not missing critical updates.
