MacroPoint, creators of patented freight tracking software designed to give third-party visibility into load status, has announced an enhanced integration with Real Time Freight, a transportation management system (TMS) for shippers, brokers, and carriers. The TMS partner is now including MacroPoint as an embedded feature delivering seamless, integrated freight tracking automation for mutual customers.
“Our deeper integration with MacroPoint freight tracking solutions provides additional transparency throughout our customer’s freight network,” said Trent Broberg, general manager of Real Time Freight. “MacroPoint’s industry-leading track and trace functionality eliminates phone calls, automates visibility, and simplifies resource allocation. Its functionality adds value to our customer relationships, and we anticipate its use will grow considerably.”
Activated from a driver’s mobile phone, including flip phones, or existing in-cab ELD/GPS device, MacroPoint’s patented location tracking software gives third parties load status and location visibility on their shipments. With MacroPoint, brokers, 3PLs, and shippers now have the same real-time location tracking, on-time delivery monitoring, and arrival and departure notifications that GPS-enabled carriers have been using for more than two decades.
Integrated with a range of TMS systems, MacroPoint automates the entire process, eliminating the need for drivers to check in with dispatchers, and for shippers and brokers to check in with carriers. To date, nearly 300,000 drivers supporting thousands of brokers, shippers and trucking companies are MacroPoint-enabled. To learn more, call 866-960-0328 or access www.macropoint.com.
