Polaris Transportation Application Centralizes Independent Links in the Supply Chain

Polaris is distinguished by its sophisticated robotics automation. It is Canada's largest privately-owned LTL carrier, serving every zip code in the United States as well as every postal code in Canada. It transports over 300,000 orders to and from the United States each year.

FREMONT, CA: Freightlens, a Polaris Transportation Group technology, was inspired by the company's LiFT digital platform (Linked insights For Transportation). For digital processing, the network has several layers and unifies separate connections to supply chain participants.

Polaris is a transportation and logistics business that specializes in dry goods cross-border shipping between the US and Canada. Polaris is distinguished by its sophisticated robotics automation. It is Canada's largest privately-owned LTL carrier, serving every zip code in the United States as well as every postal code in Canada. It transports over 300,000 orders to and from the United States each year.

The goal with Freightlens is to provide seamless integration to the company's carrier partners, as well as clients (shippers, brokers, manufacturers), and suppliers, allowing them to connect to the LiFT platform and use applications for process reporting, invoicing, real-time status notifications, and other functions throughout the supply chain.

"We want to create a digital platform that offers the ease of doing business with full transparency throughout the supply chain freight lifecycle," stated Dave Brajkovich, Chief Technology Officer for Polaris.

"The Freightlens technology is a win-win and can work like gears and cogs in a well-oiled machine without resorting to unnecessary middleware components. Today the Logistics market space has an opportunity to digitize, but only if people don't work in silos, which has been a problem for the industry."
