McLeod Software now offers LoadMaster V9.0, providing new time-saving and data-access enhancements. Key components of the new release include an enhancement to the Customer and Order Entry screens to show actual Available Credit information, not just over or under the credit limit, so carriers can confirm the credit amount is sufficient.

There are several enhancements to the ETA/Out-of-Route module to better manage late and out-of-route status based on user-defined controls. A new late status for assigning the reason (such as weather, traffic, or accident) is coupled with new filtering capabilities by driver, route or dispatcher and a report of active late stops.

Order Planning and Driver Management screens now include ETA information along with confirmation on which drivers have received and acknowledged pre-assigned movements via mobile communications devices, saving planners and dispatchers valuable time.

As well, there’s a new Trailer Detention report to assist in negotiating rates or billing customers based on dropped days past the free-day limit; includes the ability to apply up to five daily rates once a trailer is detained past an allowed number of days.

The revised software also allows the creation of a Top Driver Report based on revenue with multiple filters. There are also new interfaces with the DriverFACTS safety and accident reporting system and StarTrak’s ReeferTrak trailer tracking system.

Among more than 100 improvements to LoadMaster is a new field in the customer record to indicate those who allow their freight to be brokered and a new Accounts Payable feature allowing users to generate ACH payments directly to a vendor’s checking account.
