MacroPoint, creator of patented freight tracking software designed to give shippers, brokers, 3PLs and carriers real-time visibility into load status, announced a partnership with Eminent Global Logistics, an Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) member, to integrate its load tracking platform with Oracle Transportation Management (OTM) solutions.
Mark Kissell, vice-president–logistics solutions, North America at Eminent, said, “The ability of the MacroPoint load tracking solution to provide real-time location and status updates fits perfectly with our need to enable OTM to proactively identify problems that impact freight movements.
“EDI communications with carriers tend to be batched and not real time, so shippers cannot use that information to effectively manage exceptions when loads are late or off schedule,” he said. “Leveraging the power of MacroPoint within Oracle solutions means not using a generic mapping engine that could provide inaccurate location data, but instead having the ability to look at accurate load status for specific carriers and specific routes in real time.”
Eminent is one of the largest and most successful integrators of Oracle Supply Chain Cloud applications in North America. It solves transportation-related challenges and helps companies save money and improve service in transportation and logistics.
