With the rapid adoption of ePOD by industry hauliers CDN has been able to release a free industry Dealer Portal service where any dealer can access the real-time ETA's of inbounding vehicles as the delivery driver progresses his delivery to the dealer. Further, the Dealer Portal also offers the a repository of ePODs that has be delivered in the past. Wayne Pollock said, this is another example of the business value that can be created from real-time data capture in the field by the delivery agent.
