10-4 Systems announced that it has integrated with McLeod Software to provide shippers and carriers the ability to gain transparency into their networks through McLeod Software’s PowerBroker.
Currently integrated into over 8,000 carriers nationwide, 10-4 works with carriers to provide visibility to their shippers, the company said. 10-4 provides a hierarchy of settings and automated system alerts for shipments running early, on-time, in jeopardy or late. They continuously recalculate the ETA and give customers the ability to share this information internally across ports, distribution centers, wholesalers and externally to the final consumer, the company added.
By using real-time carrier data, 10-4 said it geofences key locations in transit so customers can share delivery windows for planning purposes via mobile, web, and desktop notifications.
“This is an exciting integration for both our Shipper and Carrier customers as it enables a “plug-and-play” solution for McLeod software users," said Travis Rhyan, 10-4 president and CEO. "McLeod users can now turn on the integration and share and/or consume real-time location and shipment data with any partner in their network."
“Partnering with 10-4 Systems allows our mutual customers the ability to share information with their entire supply chain from start to finish,” said Robert Brothers, manager of product development at McLeod. “Increased efficiency and a better customer service experience creates a win-win for everyone involved.”
