The sound of success! Introducing SMS text tracking from FreightCenter! Our goal has always been to simplify your shipping experience and with this new SMS text tracking feature, we’ve done just that. As one of the first in the freight shipping and logistics industry to utilize this technology, our SMS text tracking will give you greater visibility into the status of your shipment. In turn, this will help you deliver an even better customer experience. Let’s dive into some of the details!
How SMS Text Tracking from FreightCenter Works
With FreightCenter’s SMS text tracking, you will receive two text messages. The first message is sent to your phone when the shipment is picked up and the second message is sent to you when the shipment is delivered.
If you want additional details about your shipment and tracking, you can simply follow the link within the text you received that will take you to the tracking page on FreightCenter.com.
How Do You Sign Up for SMS Text Tracking from FreightCenter?
Signing up is a pretty simple process. First, your FreightCenter agent will need to input your cell phone number into your FreightCenter account. Then, you will need to request to opt in to receive text messages from FreightCenter.
Here are the two simple ways you can sign up:
- You can opt in to receive each kind of message, such as tracking, news, and deals on your My FreightCenter page.
- A FreightCenter agent can check the SMS boxes and indicate what type of messages you want to receive. Remember, for this option, you must give the FreightCenter agent permission to do this on your behalf.
If you ever decide you no longer want to receive tracking text messages from FreightCenter, all you have to do is text “Stop” in reply to a text from us.
