TransFollow App

  • Add image URL to RTI

It is now possible for the submitter of the Freight Document to add a picture of the Returnable Transport Item to specify which one is indicated. The pictures’ purpose it to specify the RTI if the wording is not enough.

The freight document needs to be opened to download the images, before the driver can view the picture. A preview of the picture is presented on the RTI section and the driver can click on the preview to show the picture.

You can add the URL of the image of the RTI in the JSON code when you are creating the Freight Document.

  • Employee identification in Company Code

The signing method, signing with the use of a Company Code has been expanded. Previously, the company code could be scanned by the driver, but now the submitter of the freight document can also add a specific code for the employee of the company.

This indication can be done in the API code, by writing the company code, place a pipe symbol (|) and writing the code for the employee. TransFollow will generate a unique QR code which can be scanned by the driver. First the company code will appear, than the employee code will appear to be scanned.

The identification of the employee will be presented on the signing summery, the TransFollow Portal and the PDF file. There is no expectation, so this means that if there is no additional code for the employee, the driver can finish his signing process like before. If the wrong company code is scanned, there will be a warning.
