MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Shaw Tracking has announced the availability of ACE status notification through CrimsonLogic to OmniVision and OmniTRACS units.
CrimsonLogic ACE customers now have the ability to receive ACE status notifications directly to OmniVision or OmniTRACS units. ACE status notifications include important information for crossing the border such as the customs broker’s entry number when they clear PAPS shipments and also when an ACE manifest has been accepted by CBP.
Knowing this information before a driver gets to the border is essential for ensuring a smooth border crossing. Officials say having these notifications sent directly to OmniVision or OmniTRACS unit saves carriers time and money, as well as having to make phone calls to the broker or back to dispatch.
Once set up, dispatch can store the complete list of driver profiles including driver names and e-mail addresses in the CrimsonLogic application. Every time dispatch selects a driver in a manifest it will automatically associate the events for that ACE manifest to the OmniVision or OmniTRACS unit for that driver, the company says.
“In the new era of border security, there’s a new mantra of ‘know before you go’ and with the ability of ‘real-time’ border events being sent directly to the driver in the cab of the truck, we’re leveraging off technology and empowering the carrier of tomorrow,” said James May, business development manager with CrimsonLogic.
“We’re committed to providing our customers leading edge technology solutions. This is one more opportunity for our customers to integrate and make life of the road easier for drivers. We continue to develop solutions to provide our customers further functionality and increased visibility,” said Mike Ham, vice-president, business service, Shaw Tracking.
