McLeod Software has released LTL Module, a software product that is fully integrated with LoadMaster Enterprise Version7.
LTL Module is designed for carriers that do partial-shipment consolidation, rather than carriers dedicated to less-than-truckload freight.
Product manager Matt Cacace said the module gives carriers more choices when cross-docking, and makes it easier to consolidate truckload shipments with partial shipments.
The product provides real-time information through LoadMaster’s java message service. McLeod said this functionality enhances the accuracy of load tracking, improves the carrier’s ability to allocate revenues to its trucks, and raises accuracy when billing to shippers, resulting in increased profitability for carriers.
In addition, the real-time capability allows company officers to instantaneously see how much revenue each manifest change produces.
The module also allows users to easily track partial shipments through each leg of the trip and through several stops.
