MacroPoint® Automatically Updates Your Load Statuses

Cut down the number of inconvenient calls with automatic load updates. After the initial installation on your mobile phone (smartphone not required), MacroPoint® automatically captures your load statuses. Even better, it doesn’t use data or require additional hardware, and it’s free and easy to use for C.H. Robinson contract carriers and drivers in the lower 48 states.

Visit our FAQ page for more details and tell your C.H. Robinson representative you want to start using MacroPoint® for your next load.


GPS Tracking with C.H. Robinson and Omnitracs®

If you already have an Omnitracs® agreement, get the most out of your service by automating your check calls. We’ve coordinated with Omnitracs® to reduce manual inbound/outbound check calls. After the initial setup process, Omnitracs® will send position data and shipment status updates directly to C.H. Robinson through an electronic shipment visibility application for all C.H. Robinson loads.

EDI Carrier

Become an EDI Carrier

Through electronic data interchange (EDI), you can choose how to communicate with us about routine matters like pickups, check calls, and deliveries. We currently trade the following EDI documents with our contract carriers:

  • 204 Load Tender (Truckload, intermodal, LTL)
  • 990 Load Tender Response (Truckload, intermodal, LTL)
  • 214 Shipment Status (Truckload, intermodal, LTL)
  • 210 Motor Carrier Invoice (Truckload, LTL)

We’ve found that online EDI testing allows for an efficient and productive setup process. Our online EDI testing tool is Ramp Manager, hosted by EDIFECS. It provides the ability to download and review specs, test data, and instructions, as well as upload test files for validation and feedback. All LTL, truckload, and intermodal dray carrier specs are also available.

> Let your C.H. Robinson representative know you want to become an EDI carrier today.
