PeopleNet-McLeod integration addresses LTL sector

Sept. 16, 2013

SCOTTSDALE, AZ. PeopleNet announced an integration with McLeod Software’s LoadMaster LTL software to address the complexities for less-than-truckload customers, PeopleNet said.

“In the dynamic LTL environment, driver’s assignments are likely to change frequently each day,” said Randy Boyles, PeopleNet senior vice president, Tailored Solutions. “Our mobile communication and computing system automates dispatch-driver communications streamlines the change process and workflow for drivers using LoadMaster LTL, and enables them to respond to changes more quickly and with less effort. PeopleNet customers with LTL (less-than-truckload) fleets now have another transportation management system designed specifically for their needs.”

Through the integration, PeopleNet said a driver can view all stops, select the stop to make, and when the driver indicates arrival, the corresponding form is presented for the driver to complete. For load pickup, drivers are asked to identify freight essentials: number of pieces and pallets, weight and destination zip codes.

“LoadMaster LTL is all about helping both office staff and drivers get more done in less time,” said Marc Mitchell, McLeod vice president of LTL technologies. “The tight integration between automated data collection and mobile communications at the truck-and-trailer level drives errors out of the work process and the system.”
