England Logistics chooses Load Track platform

Freight brokerage company England Logistics has selected the Load Track platform from Trucker Tools for end-to-end shipment visibility and automation.

Headquartered in Salt Lake City UT, England Logistics offers a portfolio of non-asset-based transportation solutions that include full truckload services, intermodal, dry and temperature-controlled LTL, parcel, and complete supply chain management.

In December 2016, after evaluation and testing of various freight tracking products, the company implemented the Load Track solution.

“Load Track quickly became the clear choice for its low-cost, robust and driver-friendly solution that delivers an immediate return on investment,” said Michelle Potter, senior director of strategic development for England Logistics.

England Logistics uses Load Track as an integrated platform with the PowerBroker transportation management system from McLeod Software. When load assignments are made in PowerBroker, assigned drivers are provided a text link on their phones to download the free Trucker Tools app if they have not already downloaded it.

Load Track, a feature included in the Trucker Tools app, captures the real-time location of shipments using the GPS on the drivers’ phones and provides England Logistics with additional communications and automated data collection tools.

As drivers arrive and depart from shipper and consignee locations, Load Track’s geofencing technology provides shipment status alerts in PowerBroker and triggers an automated form that drivers use to enter load details into clearly presented fields with easy data capture tools.

Drivers can electronically capture bill of lading (BOL) numbers; piece counts; over, short and damaged (OS&D) details; reefer temps; electronic signatures; and proof-of-delivery documents. An instant-messaging feature also enables drivers and dispatchers to share real-time information at any stage during shipment.

The Trucker Tools app gives drivers a holistic trip-planning solution to locate truck stops and scale stations, monitor fuel prices, and use truck-specific routing and navigation. This app has been downloaded by more than 400,000 owner-operators and small-carrier drivers.
