MacroPoint announced it has integrated with CarrierWeb. “This seamless integration enables their mutual carrier, shipper and broker customers to instantly share freight tracking information tailored to their unique service requirements,” according to the companies.
“The integration gives our customers another way to share critical load information with their customers who utilize MacroPoint to monitor load status across many different carriers in their system,” said Keith O’Brien, vice president of product management and professional services at CarrierWeb. “For example, JNJ Express came to us and said they needed to provide load updates via MacroPoint to a large customer. Working with MacroPoint we integrated their tracking functionality to give them the automated information they need.”
“Our customer told us we needed to enable the MacroPoint integrated load tracking solution they use to help manage shipments globally,” said Joe Hilderbrand, director of operations at JNJ Express, an asset based transportation and logistics services provider headquartered in Memphis, TN. “We asked CarrierWeb if they could set up the integration and told them we needed to get it done quickly.
“Ten days after our initial integration meeting we were in final testing,” Hilderbrand added. “Implementation of the MacroPoint solution via CarrierWeb was very smooth. Both companies were great to work with and most importantly, we are now helping our customer increase efficiencies in its organization based on the load tracking information we’re providing.”
Used with a driver’s mobile phone, including flip phones, or existing in-cab ELD/GPS devices, MacroPoint’s patented location tracking software gives third parties load status and location visibility on their shipments. “With MacroPoint, brokers, 3PLs and shippers have real-time location tracking, on-time delivery monitoring, and arrival and departure notifications that enhance the efficiency and profitability of their operations,” the company said.
“By integrating with our MacroPoint freight tracking software, CarrierWeb is seamlessly providing visibility into the location of freight for our mutual customers,” said Glynn Spangenberg, senior vice president/general manager of MacroPoint. “We designed our third party load tracking software to integrate with solutions that carriers, brokers and shippers are already using to manage their operations without needing additional software, and we’re pleased that CarrierWeb has joined our growing list of partners.”
