Responding to need they see within the industry, Carrier Logistics Inc. (CLI), has introduced LOCI, an artificial intelligence (AI) tool for determining the exact location type for a pick-up or delivery.

This new module improves the efficiency of the supply chain by providing automation around how to manage different customer location types. LOCI works seamlessly with FACTS, the total freight management solution installed in hundreds of sites around the globe, to give users detailed information on a pick-up or delivery address, and apply business rules regarding how to best service those addresses.
LOCI gives users:
• Over 115 Categories of Locations - so much more than residential or commercial - that cover everything from Airport to Zoo.
• Ease of Use: Fully-integrated into the FACTS shipment entry and rating modules.
• Ability to Plan and Dispatch the Right Driver with the Right Equipment
• Automated assigning of a carrier’s accessorials.
“We know that right now, many carriers are servicing different customers and locations than they have in the past,” said Ben Wiesen, president of CLI. “And we know that staff at the carriers is in a state of flux, with people covering dispatch who might not have the tribal knowledge about the customer base. And of course, we know how confusing that can be. In order to assist our clients during these turbulent times, (and even as the economy starts to open up) we are offering this emerging technology for free through June 30, 2020.”
Carriers need to know during these unprecedented times: Are companies open? Are their hours changed or reduced? Are they staffed to accept delivery? LOCI helps cut down the expense of return shipments. LOCI gives you the data you need to plan your operations in the most efficient way possible.
