Users of Navisphere, the single global technology platform released by C.H. Robinsonm are now able to view detailed shipment information through their Apple or Andriod smartphones, allowing the platform to extend its worldwide reach.

C.H. Robinson Worldwide Inc, one of the world’s largest logistics companies, has developed the app, which allows users to view detailed shipment information by searching according to pickup and drop off dates, reference codes, container or load numbers.

In addition, users are able to view events of a shipment, imaged documents, and can email their account representative with questions on a particular move.

Following the launch of Navisphere® in November last year, customers can leverage C.H. Robinson's technology investments and gain access to a centralized network of more than 100,000 supply chain partners, without the need to integrate with each provider individually.

“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. “The Navisphere app gives customers another method to stay connected and informed on all their shipments.”

According to a statement by the company, this new development ‘marks a continuation of C.H. Robinson’s commitment to mobile technology’. In November 2011, C.H. Robinson introduced its CHRWTrucks.com mobile app geared towards carriers and other providers. The carrier app allows a motor carrier to enter critical shipment information, such as check calls and delivery information, as well as post empty equipment locations.
