Automate, Refine, Repeat

One of the core software design principles at Silver Bullet Technologies is flexibility.  Our software is built to accommodate many of your unique needs out of the box. Easy to customize software empowers companies to differentiate themselves with their unique business process and refine those processes over time. We believe that software can be a differentiating asset that gives companies a competitive edge while allowing them to continue to define and refine the way they do business. That's why we help every customer configure our software to their unique needs and goals.  From integrations, to billing, to admin, to workflow - doing so is fast and efficient in a software platform that has been designed to be flexible at its core.

Software should be a high performing asset, not an expense.

Import & Export

Whether you're bringing shipments into the country our sending them out, our software modules allow you to deconsolidate shipments for distribution or consolidate shipments for export.

A truly modular system

Connect the dots between operations. Eliminate silos in your organization.

Just because a shipment has left your yard, warehouse, vessel, or truck, doesn't mean it should leave your database or software system. Using different software solutions from different vendors to manage distinct transportation modes can create complexity, an integration challenge, and limitations on efficiency and growth. Eliminate redundant data entry and silos in your organization by using a solution that comprehensively meets your business needs and allows you to manage all operations from a single database.

Eliminate silos in your operation.

A configurable platform

Modules that simplify your business

We've built a powerful, configurable software platform for logistics service providers. Our trucking management system is one component in this platform. Use our trucking software on a stand alone basis, or integrate it with other components such as our Warehousing, Yard, or Freight Forwarding module. Each component can be customized to fit your unique business processes, and data, communication, and finance needs. Enjoy the flexibility to expand into new service areas by just adding a module. All modules work from a single database, creating an efficient and simple platform for your business with extensive integration and reporting capabilities.

Assign Drivers to Loads, Equipment, and Routes

Assign drivers to loads, equipment, and routes. Drivers can then accept or reject the assignment. Eliminate the need for unnecessary administration. Let your software save you time, money, and labor expense. Send drivers new route assignments in real-time. Let the system calculate new schedules, delivery times, and make re-assignments based on changes.

Maintain Your Fleet

Create a fleet maintenance schedule with custom work orders that automate tasks within your organization. Define custom work orders, automatically assign them to specific workers, create oversight procedures, capture photos and documents related to the task, and save all of this information to the work order, equipment, and worker log. Immediately see what's been done, what's in process, and what's scheduled. Manually create a work order or trigger work orders based on custom alerts and events. The possibilities to automate and intelligently manage your operations are endless.

Make Extensive Customized Reports

The database is at your disposal to create simple, or extremely detailed functional reports. Integrate with our other modules or your own systems for more detailed and comprehensive reports. For example, connect the Silver Bullet Trucking Module to a WMS or YMS for even more functionality and reporting possibilities. Create an infinite number of reports at commodity, customer, branch, or any level. We'll train you to pull any custom report your teams need to understand your business on a deeper level and make strategic choices that lead to business growth.

Reduce Data Entry

Data entry is time consuming, requires unnecessary labor, and is prone to error. Often times, companies receiving information from partners will have to input that information into the system manually. Other times, when a shipment moves from one mode of transportation to another, some shipment information will have to be re-entered instead of simply automatically updating the shipment. A smartly integrated and automated system can reduce cost, error, and increase efficiency and quality of customer service.

  • Utilize EDI, XML, Excel and other forms of data imports to reduce data entry.
  • Customers, steamship lines and trucking companies can provide data electronically regarding incoming and outgoing equipment.
  • Scale integration, no manual weight entry required.
  • Bar coded equipment and yard spots allow for quick and easy verification and data entry

RFID and Image recognition capabilities

Electronically register the in and out gates of equipment with no human interaction required. RFID and image recognition capabilities can be added to your workflow through custom business processes and automatically managed in our trucking or yard management software. 

Alerts, Notifications, & Partner Integrations

Managing an efficient trucking operation requires handling many different processes, people, partners, shipments, assets, and communications. Automated alerts and notifications allow fleet operators to keep track of all of the drivers, trucks, trailers, and shipments and to know immediately when a change needs to happen in order for operations to keep running smoothly. Alerts, notifications, and automatically triggerable procedures such as work orders can be completely configured and defined by you. Why should we guess what your organization needs? We've built a platform that allows you to define and configure your requirements at the deepest level. For example, you can alert relevant parties, send emails, text alerts, notifications, and trigger job functions for:

  • Reefer management-plugin
  • Reefer temp control
  • Dispatch and arrival
  • Route changes
  • Additional stops
  • Detention and demurrage
  • Equipment loaded and ready
  • Equipment maintenance
  • Cargo condition or equipment damage
  • Reassignments if driver has not checked in
  • Updates of shipper instructions
  • and unlimited possibilities

Define events, milestones & dashboards

Create customizable events, milestones, business processes and dashboards.

  • Configurable dashboards allow users to quickly and easily update data and events for multiple loads, tasks and processes on a single screen.
  • Always know the status of any shipment or piece of equipment with customer defined statuses and events
  • Manage refrigerated, bulk, liquid, containers, and trailers of any size and type of conveyance
  • Create views that display all of the information that you need conveniently
  • Never have to dig through software to find what you need again

Use on Mobile and Desktop

For example:

  • Use our desktop application for office functions, fleet management, reporting, and issuing work orders.

  • Know the status and condition of everything in your fleet at all times

These documents are then easily accessible in the dashboard by users with appropriate permissions. You can create custom documentary procedures to fit your business process.
