An accessorial revenue feature that identifies costs based on load-specific revenues has been added to the Truckload Cost Information System (TL/CIS(r)) and Less-Than-Truckload Cost Information System (LTL/CISTM), according to the Transportation Costing Group (TCG). Developed for motor carriers with sizable amounts of accessorial revenue income, the new feature calculates the corresponding costs of specific extra services.
Other enhancements to both TL and LTL systems include a simplified drill-down process for identifyins reasons for specific loss or profitability issues. The new drill-down process simplifies a wide range of reports including Freight Profitability by customer, by driver, and by lane as well as operationally focused reports among others that can be viewed all the way down to the individual load. Additionally, new sorting criterion let carriers create summary reports, as well as access a new reporting function by driver. www.tcgcis.com.
