Scargos Freight Shipping App

Complete logistics solution for shippers, carriers, and drivers

Mobile & Desktop app

Simple, easy-to-use web app to connect shippers and carriers

Shippers can easily book freight loads, accept offers from carriers, and follow their cargo from pick-up to drop-off with GPS tracking. Carriers get access to a live-updated database of shipment orders and place their offers. Truckers have a convenient tool for navigation and reporting.

All through one single user-friendly application with intuitive UI/UX.

Project goals

The solution aimed to bridge the gap between shippers and carriers, allowing them to avoid making phone calls to set up deals, searching for offers in messenger app channels, and having to deal with freight forwarders and customs brokers. Another goal was to allow drivers to plan their routes and minimize the amount of empty mileage in-between deliveries.

Our software engineering and design teams were tasked to implement a web application with adaptive UI that would run smoothly across devices with a great mobile user experience.

Challenges

To fit all the logistics functionality, and at the same time create a seamless experience for the app, we had to seriously work on the design logic. Shippers, carriers, and drivers each had their unique roles and required their own set of tools to participate in shipment processes.

The main challenge was to come up with a UI that would accommodate all.

Work done

To make the UI of our freight shipping app more intuitive, the user roles were split into three separate profiles: supplier, carrier, and driver. Each profile has its own separate view with only the tools available to the corresponding role.

  • Freight load builder for shippers.

  • Geolocation and mapping service for drivers.

  • Live-updated truckload dashboard for carriers.

Implementation details

Our team chose to go with a progressive web application (PWA) implementation to ensure it runs smoothly across mobile and desktop platforms. The PWA offers high performance, has the same touch and feel as a native mobile app, and can also work in offline mode.

We've designed the user flow to be logical and convenient. Three separate screens for the shipper, carrier, and driver profile allowed us to have all the controls in front of the user and make the navigation that much easier. The app provides the ultimate seamless experience even for users who are not as tech-savvy.
