We’re pleased to announce the return of a long-time favorite feature: Along a Route search for website users. While app users have enjoyed the feature all along, it’s just been revamped and powered up for both the desktop and mobile web user.
How to Search Along a Route
It’s simple: just toggle to “Along Route” mode when you search, and you’ll see a list of shipments directly on the way between your pickup and delivery points. This tool was designed to make it easier, faster, and simpler to find relevant shipments on the route you’ll be taking anyway, reducing time-to-book for both you and your shipping customers. So it’s a win/win.
Here are a few things to remember:
- You’ll need to enter a specific city or zip code in both the Pickup field and the Delivery field, rather than a broader area or state. This ensures the shipments you find are truly along your route, rather than hours out of the way.
- You’re able to create a Saved Search with Along a Route as a filter, meaning you can continuously receive notifications about shipments on a specific lane you drive frequently.
The feature is now active for all uShip users, worldwide.
