CLEVELAND, March 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — MacroPoint, the industry leader in third party freight tracking solutions, has announced an enhancement to its ELD tracking service that allows logistics companies and shippers to remotely locate virtually any Class 8 vehicle on the road.
MacroPoint’s ELD tracking service now combines with their cell phone tracking solution to make up the largest single source of truck location data ever previously available to the transportation industry. MacroPoint’s patented load tracking portfolio delivers the unique ability to automate track and trace procedures by simply tracking a driver’s cell phone and/or In-Cab ELD/GPS device.
Glynn Spangenberg, a former executive at both Qualcomm and PeopleNet, who serves as MacroPoint’s general manager and executive vice president states that, “The technology is a game changer for the non-asset world of trucking. Now, regardless of the technology inside the cab or who is hauling the load, shippers and 3PLs will always know the location of their freight.”
Unlike traditional tracking products, MacroPoint’s solution uses patented technology to track the drivers’ cell phone or In-Cab ELD/GPS device. This flexibility gives MacroPoint customers a single source by which they can track all of their brokered freight regardless of whether the vehicle has an on-board computer installed or not.
Designed to deliver direct visibility over the location of third-party loads and brokered freight, MacroPoint’s capabilities include:
- Location Tracking via Any Cell Phone and/or In-Cab ELD/GPS Device
- Automated Events
- Breadcrumb Mapping
- Direct TMS Integration
“MacroPoint’s track and trace software is engineered to remove the guesswork typically associated with tracking brokered freight,” adds Glynn Spangenberg. “This comprehensive integration gives our customers a powerful new avenue for gaining real-time insight into the precise location of their loads.”
