Load tracking platform chosen based on its reputation for providing a highly accurate and affordable solution
CLEVELAND, OH – July 11, 2017 - MacroPoint, creator of patented freight tracking software designed to give shippers, 3PLs, brokers and carriers real-time visibility into load status, today announced that A. Duie Pyle Brokerage Solutions is using its automated load tracking solution exclusively in its operation.
“We chose MacroPoint to be the exclusive provider of our freight visibility platform based on its strong reputation for an accurate and affordable solution,” said Anna Hummel, Director of Brokerage Solutions at A. Duie Pyle Brokerage Solutions. “Our challenge is to get real-time load status information from the many carriers we work with every day and provide it promptly to shippers. We cannot make check calls as effectively, productively or affordably as we can when using MacroPoint to provide freight location updates.
“Additionally, with our asset-based background we were accustomed to having our system updated automatically,” Hummel continued. “With MacroPoint, we’re able to integrate load data seamlessly with our Freight Broker software from TMW Systems.”
First introduced to MacroPoint at the TMW 2016 in.sight User Conference, A. Duie Pyle Brokerage Solutions evaluated the load tracking software’s capabilities and went live with the platform in January 2017. The implementation and integration went very smoothly, Hummel reported, and today the solution is being used to track a growing number of loads while enabling the brokerage to manage by exception and focus on freight hauls that may be late or off schedule.
“There is no way to make a check call or exchange an email with a carrier and update our brokerage management system—and be sure the information is accurate and in real time—for the cost of a transaction using MacroPoint,” Hummel stated. “At the same time, MacroPoint is always working to make sure we are using its technology to the fullest extent and as efficiently as possible. No other relationship has been as smooth, fast, up to our expectations and as supportive before and after we became a customer as what we have experienced with MacroPoint.”
“It is a great honor to be named the exclusive provider of load tracking for such a well-known company in the transportation marketplace,” said Dave Halsema, Executive Vice President of Partner Alliances at MacroPoint. “We look forward to meeting the needs of A. Duie Pyle Brokerage Solutions so they can provide real-time load status information to their customers productively and affordably.”
