TORONTO, Ont. – Freight Logix unveiled its new transportation management system at Truck World 2002 in Toronto.
John Brutin, president, explains that Freight Logix built its LTL and cartage software from the ground up specifically for LTL and cartage haulers. Truckload carriers simply do not face the same complexities as LTL and cartage carriers, he says, and the truckload software doesn’t have the flexibility to handle less-than-truckload freight.
“There is no room for grace with LTL, you have to be fast and you have to be accurate,” says Brutin. “The response to the program has been fantastic.”
By integrating all functions of the operation, from order entry to driver settlements, the software improves efficiency by eliminating data entry and reducing errors.
Freight Logix has integrated with PeopleNet Communications and Qualcomm, because it is strictly an application system that functions via the services of its wireless partners.
“We take over and integrate the data for the communications company, then relay to their interface with a single flow of data entry,” he says.
The program combines shipment tracing, an automated rating system, advanced planning and dispatch tools, zoning capabilities, the ability to handle international exchanges, integrated driver communications and a task management system.
It is a flexible package that addresses every point of operation for the company and can be configured to adapt to any company process. Also, filters are in place to control the user and their functions, and the program can be configured to any user’s preferences.
Brutin says Freight Logix is a simple solution for complex freight, as it will lower operating costs by increasing profit per mile, maximizing resource utilization and keeping track of all operations..
