TransCore’s Canadian-based Link Logistics has integrated Google Maps API Premier into its Loadlink logistics freight-matching service. This allows Loadlink customers to map the origin and destination of all freight and equipment postings and matching leads with ease. It will be available to all Platinum customers at no additional charge this year.

Loadlink subscribers can map all their freight and truck matches based on the preferred sorting criteria they use to organize their search. They can also view their leads in satellite and street views from Google Maps, providing a complete overview of available freight and equipment. The integrated maps service enables dispatchers to make quick decisions, says TransCore, based on the mapped co-ordinates within their Loadlink application without the time-consuming process of searching multiple applications to find locations.

The company says deployment of this feature for Loadlink.net version 2.8 users will be seamlessly integrated into the service without requiring any configuration changes.
