Automated Product Ingestion.

CEDAR TRANSLOAD makes it easy to ingest external data to eliminate data entry. Leverage railroad EDI data to automate the ingestion of new inbounds. Shipper ERP feeds eliminate the need for manifest emails. Finally, Cedar's mobile-phone based scanning app can ingest virtually any product label into your system, allowing your customers to track their product by their own internal identifiers. For inbound truck shipments, our minimal in-gate process takes seconds.

LEVERAGE YOUR mOBILE PHONE to avoid new purchases

Scan new product by scanning with mobile

Most commodities ship with either a QR or UPC code - when you are unloading inventory off a car, or organizing a truckload to be sent off, scan the codes to create records in your system.

No QR codes? You can use your phone's camera to pick out text on the package using OCR (Optical Character Recognition), instead of typing literally everything into a form.

By being phone-first, we can ditch the expensive, clunky scanners and leverage a free, more flexible solution.
