"Frequent Lanes" Feature Available to Carriers

As a carrier, are there lanes that you would prefer to move freight in? Based on carrier feedback, Ultra Logistics decided to use this information and—in an effort to provide enhanced services to our carriers—develop a system to regularly monitor and provide information on our most frequent lanes. With that in mind, we created our “Frequent Lanes” feature.

By logging into the “Frequent Lanes” feature of the GoUltra.com website, registered carriers can sign up for email alerts that will notify them when a new load is available in a lane that interests them. Sound simple? It is. We are certain that it will bring efficiency and ease to another level for our carriers.  Even if a carrier is not registered, they can still go to the website and sign up within minutes.  Click here to be redirected to our registration page.

The “Frequent Lanes” feature is easy to navigate. Once logged in, carriers can click on the Loads link and then the Frequent Lanes link. When they find a lane they are interested in they can select it by clicking the Add link. Afterwards, they will get an email notification any time loads become available in the lanes they have chosen.

Ultra Logistics Introduces "Available Equipment" Feature

Ultra Logistics recognizes the fact that—because of the many criteria involved—matching carriers to the right loads is vital. We noticed that allowing carriers to search for loads based on where their available equipment is would be a valuable tool. With that in mind, we wanted to provide our carriers with a method of being notified whenever there were loads available of particular interest to them.

The new “Available Equipment” feature of the GoUltra.com website makes this possible. It will alert carriers when there are available loads that match their available equipment. Registered carriers can set up their available equipment profile through their goultra.com accounts. Once set up, carriers will receive email alerts every time a load becomes available that matches their listed equipment. Even if a carrier is not registered, they can still go to the website and sign up within minutes. Click here to be redirected to our registration page.

Once you are logged in, just click on the Load Matching link towards the top of the page. Here carriers can fill in the information for any equipment they would like to receive notifications for. Once all the equipment is set up, our system will take care of the rest. Carriers will get an email notification any time loads become available for the equipment they have registered.
