App aims to ease Canadian border crossings for truckers, carriers


Truck operators and carriers who carry freight to and from Canada may want to take a look at a new app that bills itself as one that can help make border crossings more efficient.

The Livingston Shipment Tracker app from Livingston International, available for both iOS and Android, gives carriers and drivers info on clearance status of their loads “as quickly as possible,” Livingston says.

The app employs both the U.S. Pre-Arrival Processing System and Canada’s Pre-Arrival Review System.

It also has scanner functionality to allow drivers to use a barcode to scan and check their shipment status, rather than typing in the barcode.

Carriers and drivers can also opt for text and/or email shipment updates.
