In an effort to improve the services we provide to our customers, East Coast Transport made large investments in two industry-leading software companies in 2016: MacroPoint and McLeod. With the addition of these software solutions, East Coast Transport is able to offer customers cutting-edge logistics technology solutions.
We Now Offer the Industry’s Best Logistics and TMS Software –
McLeod is a software developer focused on carrier, broker, and freight management businesses. It developed its own comprehensive transportation management and trucking software that can support integration with complimentary logistics solutions. With over 800 customers in North America, involvement in national organizations, and involvement in 20 state and regional organizations, McLeod has strong connections across the country.
McLeod software includes solutions for truck dispatch operations, brokering, business processes, customer relationship management, mobile applications, and more. It allows us to be fully EDI to customers that need to be, as well as to offer a web portal to our larger clients and carriers.
MacroPoint is a relatively new company that develops logistics tracking solutions for third party freight transporters. MacroPoint transforms an operator’s cell phone, smartphone, or in-cab device into an automated tracking system. Despite only being on the market since 2011, MacroPoint is already being used by over 6,000 trucking companies that are tracking over half a million drivers across North America.
Users of MacroPoint get automated status updates in real time, which can be sent to anyone they choose, and the ability to use messaging and file-sharing features. The software also integrates with operators’ current transportation management systems.
What This Means for our Customers
East Coast Transport is excited to be able to offer our customers the best logistics software services the industry has to offer. We want our customers to experience the transparency these solutions can bring to supply chain networks. As logistics grows in complexity, our hope is that we can continue to help our customers simplify their supply chains through investments like MacroPoint and McLeod logistics and TMS software.
