Theres an app for that inbody
The Navisphere customer app can be downloaded for free at the Apple App Store on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Marketplace.

C.H. Robinson Worldwide Inc. has developed a mobile app to extend the reach of the Navisphere platform, allowing users to access critical shipment information with Apple or Android mobile devices.

Navisphere app users are able to view detailed shipment information by searching for shipments via pickup or drop off dates, container, customer reference, or C.H. Robinson load numbers. In addition, users are able to view events of a shipment, imaged documents, and can email their account representative with questions on a particular move.

C.H. Robinson introduced Navisphere, the next version of the company's single global technology platform, in November 2012. The platform allows customers to leverage C.H. Robinson's technology investments and gain access to a centralized network of more than 100,000 supply chain partners, without the need to integrate with each provider individually.

“Supply chains are constantly in motion, so having continuous visibility to each movement is a requirement for logistics professionals,” said Tom Mahlke, chief information officer at C.H. Robinson. “The Navisphere app gives customers another method to stay connected and informed on all their shipments.”

This release marks a continuation of C.H. Robinson’s commitment to mobile technology. In November 2011, C.H. Robinson introduced its CHRWTrucks.com mobile app geared towards carriers and other providers. The carrier app allows a motor carrier to enter critical shipment information, such as check calls and delivery information, as well as post empty equipment locations.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
