Trucker Tools integrates with PowerBroker

Jan. 1, 2018
Learn the benefits offered by Trucker Tools integrating its Smart Capacity platform with McLeod Software's PowerBroker.

Trucker Tools announced the integration of its Smart Capacity platform with PowerBroker, an enterprise-wide freight brokerage management system from McLeod Software.

Launched in September 2017, Smart Capacity is a transformative, cloud-based freight matching platform used by third-party logistics providers (3PLs) and carriers to leapfrog the current technology of load boards, freight marketplaces and companies trying to “uberize” the transportation industry.

By combining instant carrier-driver connectivity with predictive analytics, the Smart Capacity platform gives 3PLs forward visibility of available capacity in their private carrier networks. The platform effectively shines a light on capacity that was previously hidden.

With the integration, 3PLs can automatically send available loads from the PowerBroker system to Smart Capacity to optimally match with available capacity from their trusted carrier networks. Logistics providers and carriers then use the online Smart Capacity portal to review matches and quickly execute freight transactions.

Once a load is tendered to a carrier, 3PLs use the Load Track platform, also from Trucker Tools, as an integrated system with PowerBroker for continuous shipment visibility, instant driver messaging, and proof-of-delivery document capture, among other automated features.

Trucker Tools went to great lengths to ensure data privacy and protection for Smart Capacity users. Logistics providers share visibility of loads only to trusted carriers in their networks, and carriers do not share the exact locations of assets and drivers.

Both the Smart Capacity and the Load Track platforms utilize the Trucker Tools smartphone app, which has been downloaded by more than 450,000 owner-operators and small carrier drivers.
