BIRMINGHAM, AL — The release of LoadMaster, PowerBroker, and LoadMaster LTL version 11.2, will provide Canadian customers with new functionality and business process automation, says McLeod Software.
The LoadMaster and PowerBroker systems give McLeod customers the ability to operate with multiple currency transaction capabilities and nonUS taxes. And this new capability makes the McLeod enterprise software solution available for Canadian transportation and logistics companies.
LoadMaster and PowerBroker now include a powerful new Radius Search capability. For brokers, finding the best carrier using the carrier history search includes a radius search on both the origin and destination for every load to allow them to find the best options quickly. This feature also makes it easier for carriers to find the right backhaul opportunities during their planning process, the company claims.
A new tab for Market Rate Guidance has been developed for LoadMaster and PowerBroker. This feature makes it simpler for brokers to get rate guidance by combining information from TransCore DAT and Internet Truckstop with the customer’s own historical data on rates for a particular lane in a single easytouse location.
The new Continuous Moves feature in PowerBroker makes it easier for brokers to keep their carriers moving by booking them on the next available load, near the next location their tractor is scheduled to deliver out. McLeod has also enhanced the carrier insurance monitoring options in PowerBroker, by adding new integration interfaces with Carrier Performance Check and Internet Truckstop in this release.
LoadMaster and PowerBroker 11.2 deliver enhanced Key Performance Indicator reporting with the expansion of McLeod’s Vital Signs real time KPI reporting feature. There are new built in analytics that help carriers pay closer attention to how many miles their drivers are getting.
New offtheshelf integration products for a wide array of solutions from the company’s industry partners have been released, including enhancements for Manhattan Associates’ optimization tools, support for batch fuel and check advances from U.S. Bank, expanded capability with TCH fuel purchasing integration, more features for CarrierWeb mobile communications, plus enhanced trailer tracking capabilities from Skybitz.
LoadMaster LTL version 11.2 brings new capabilities to streamline a wide range of daytoday operations and EDI activities for LTL carriers plus support for the PeopleNet in cab mobile communications system for LTL operations.
