Basic information about the widget

Add the Most common directions widget to your Dashboard to track the distribution of accepted freights on key/most popular routes over the last 30 days.

Most common directions widget:

  • belongs to widgets from the Freights category,
  • is addressed to contractors and carriers,
  • presents data collected on the basis of freights that resulted in transactions concluded on the Platform (does not apply to multistop)
  • displays historical data
  • can be added to your Dashboard more than once (up to 9 times).

Widget navigation

The main elements of the Most common directions widget are:

  1. A line chart showing the results over the last 30 days for the 3 or 5 most frequently selected countries where the contractor loads and unloads.
  2. Legend explaining which color is assigned to a given country (place of loading or unloading).
  3. Filters - after clicking the blue arrow, a window with filters opens: type of operation (loading, unloading), show on chart (Top 3, Top 5). Additionally, at the bottom of the filter tab there is a truck icon corresponding to the type of operation.

How to analyze data

The Most common directions widget shows the number of formally accepted freights over the last 30 days for the three or five most popular destination countries.

  1. To facilitate data analysis, add the widget twice (you can add the widget up to 9 times).
You can learn how to add a widget to the Dashboard in the article Widgets - basic information.

  1. Set the loading view on one widget and the unloading view on the other.


Filter setting:

(1) Operation type: unloading, Show in chart: Top 3.

(2) Operation type: loading, Show in chart: Top 3.

It is worth noting the difference in the most popular loading and unloading countries. The data shows higher activity in both loading and unloading operations in Poland. In other directions, there are periods of downtime followed by increases. This suggests that there are certain cycles in freight traffic that may be related to, for example, seasonality, market trends or other factors.

If you analyze the data as:

A shipper who publishes freights, the chart shows the loading and unloading locations, where the country of loading is always your country and the unloading locations correspond to your contractors.

- A carrier who accepts freights, the loading and unloading locations correspond to the routes on which you carry out transports.

- A forwarder who participates in the process both as a shipper and a carrier, the data on the chart are the sum of your actions as separate parties to the process. Loading locations indicate the country of loading and unloading locations indicate the country of unloading based on the number of orders.

  1. Hover over the selected part of the chart to get detailed information: the average number of freights on a given direction, in a specific period.

With such analysis you can:

  • identify which routes are most frequently used during a given period,
  • quickly notice decreases in share in specific areas and identify potential issues,
  • respond to changes in demand on particular routes,
  • adjust your actions according to current market trends and effectively manage logistics operations.
