SuperDispatch launches new digital payment app
KANSAS CITY, MO–SuperDispatch, a Kansas City-based car shipping platform, launched SuperPay, an integrated and automated payment feature within the SuperDispatch platform, that uses a combination of ACH transfer capabilities paired with an intermediary digital wallet, allowing shippers to pay carriers in as little as one business day. SuperPay eliminates the need for fragmented payment systems and streamlines the accounting process, the company said. Incorporating Digital Delivery Verification, SuperPay gives brokers and shippers a 48-hour window to place a payment on hold while confirming that the correct vehicles were picked up from and delivered to the right locations. This reduces the need to verify every delivery manually and allows users to only manage exceptions.
