Schneider Transportation Management Realizes Success With MacroPoint
Brokerage reports improved service performance and enhanced productivity with automated freight tracking
CLEVELAND, OH – February 21, 2017 - MacroPoint, creator of patented freight tracking software designed to give shippers, brokers, 3PLs and carriers real-time visibility into load status, today announced that Schneider Transportation Management is reporting improved service performance and productivity with its automated load tracking solution.
“MacroPoint automated load tracking is what EDI was in the past,” said Ben Schuchart, VP Brokerage Operations at Schneider Transportation Management, the brokerage division of Schneider National, Inc. “Once we started tracking loads with MacroPoint we saw an improvement in service performance because we can automate the process of providing shippers with the visibility into load status that they require. It also improves productivity for our associates because it has eliminated the need for hundreds of checks calls with carriers and drivers.”
Schneider Transportation Management now strongly prefers that many of the more than 25,000 carriers in its pool of freight haulers utilize one of the MacroPoint enabled methods of tracking loads and providing status updates. The freight location platform is also integrated with the MercuryGate TMS solution at Schneider Transportation Management.
“We are pleased to hear that Schneider Transportation Management is improving service performance with MacroPoint and that a growing number of its customers are asking for freight tracking when tendering loads,” said Dave Halsema, executive vice president of MacroPoint. “We look forward to continuing to provide them with the visibility into load status that is enhancing productivity for the brokerage, its carriers and drivers.”
