The interface will provide carriers with real-time visibility to trailer positions, temperatures and other cargo sensors while in transit, Blue Tree said.
Carriers using both products will receive trailer status updates and can set temperature limits for any given load so that abnormal conditions or temperature alarms are detected and brought to the attention of the right people immediately. Alarm reports for sensors such as refrigerated unit power/battery can also be delivered via the LoadMaster Rapid Alert module.
“The integration of R:COM with LoadMaster means that our customers can not only provide better customer service and overall improved load management but they are now provided with the information necessary to make swift and early decisions in order to prevent load spoilage and cargo claims,” said Charlie Cahill, CEO of Blue Tree Systems.
In addition, load temperature history is maintained in the LoadMaster system for each load, giving carriers the necessary proof that specified temperatures were maintained throughout the entire dispatch process.
“We are very happy to have Blue Tree Systems as a new partner at McLeod Software. We believe our customers will recognize the value that our integration solution with R:COM can bring to their business, especially for our temperature controlled carriers,” said Tom McLeod, CEO and founder of McLeod Software.
