In an effort to improve the services we provide to our customers, East Coast Transport made large investments in two industry-leading transportation management software companies: MacroPoint, McLeod, and Trucker Tools. With the addition of these software solutions, East Coast Transport is able to offer customers cutting-edge logistics technology solutions.
We Offer the Industry’s Best Logistics and TMS Software
McLeod is a software development company 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.

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 system software.
Trucker Tools, based in Reston, Va., is the leading provider of freight matching, visibility and trip planning applications for the transportation industry. The company’s popular driver smartphone app has been downloaded by about 450,000 owner operators and small-carrier drivers to access information and services conveniently while on the road. Load Track is a robust feature included in the app that connects drivers with carriers and freight brokers to eliminate manual check calls.

Trucker Tools, McLeod Software Announce Smart Capacity Integration
Trucker Tools, a leading driver smartphone app, load tracking and freight matching solutions provider, announces the integration of its Smart Capacity platform with PowerBroker®, an enterprise-wide freight brokerage management system from McLeod Software.
Launched in September 2017, Smart Capacity is a transformative, cloud-based freight matching platform used by third-party logistics providers (3PLs) and carriers to leapfrog the current technology of load boards, freight marketplaces and companies trying to “uberize” the transportation industry.
By combining instant carrier-driver connectivity with predictive analytics, the Smart Capacity platform gives 3PLs forward visibility of available capacity in their private carrier networks. The platform effectively shines a light on capacity that was previously hidden in the dark.
With the integration, 3PLs can automatically send available loads from their PowerBroker® system to Smart Capacity to optimally match with available capacity from their trusted carrier networks. Logistics providers and carriers then use the online Smart Capacity portal to review matches and quickly execute freight transactions.
Once a load is tendered to a carrier, 3PLs use the Load Track platform, also from Trucker Tools, as an integrated system with PowerBroker® for continuous shipment visibility, instant driver messaging, and proof-of-delivery document capture, among other automated features. Logistics providers share visibility of loads only to trusted carriers in their networks and carriers do not share the exact locations of assets and drivers.
East Coast Transport, LLC., a mid-size 3PL that serves some of the largest shippers in the United States with transportation of time- and temperature-sensitive products, is among the first companies to use the integrated system from Trucker Tools and McLeod Software.
