Introducing Modal Tracker: Intermodal Shipment Tracking Made Easy


Categories: | | | | |

Today is the day. I have been working on a new project called Modal Tracker. A system to track intermodal shipments. We are starting our FREE beta officially today.

Modal Tracker is an online system for tracking shipments done via steamship carriers. Modal Tracker features automatic updating of your shipment's information from online sources. You don't need to do the manual work. Modal Tracker is web-based software, so it's easy to get started. There's nothing to install. No servers to buy. Just enter a bill of lading number and you're started.

Salesforce.com represented a high level enterprise offering, with a high level of complexity and expense. Basecamp brought software as a service home to us all.
