McLeod adds broker app to TMS software

McLeod Software has updated its transportation management software to include a new carrier app for brokers, and introduced improvements for customer service teams. PowerBroker Version 20.1 has the new Carrier App to connect brokers to carriers and drivers, using a secure connection to the PowerBroker system. That means logistics companies using PowerBroker will be able to deploy some of the same capabilities promoted by “digital brokers” that engage carriers with mobile apps, the company says.
