We’re a visibility platform and location data aggregator focused on European road freight and we’re collaborating with Shippers and Forwarders to improve visibility of tracking processes and help their contractors to securely share data with their customers because of the GDPR issues.
HOW I CAN INTEGRATE MY FLEET WITH CO3?
Customer who wants their fleet data to be shared with him sends an invitation to the carrier. After the carrier’s approval CO3 gets the contact data and starts the onboarding process. Next steps consider gathering consents for sharing the data and additional information needed to connect the fleet and make it visible on CO3 Platform. As a carrier you receive access to a unique account where you can fully control sharings. CO3 Team provides dedicated support at any stage of the process.
