Rand McNally’s TND 760 and TPC mobile fleet management devices are now integrated with Carrier Logistics’ (CLI) FACTS freight management system, an integrated billing, accounting, and operations package.
“The transportation community does a good job of focusing on and resolving pressure points for customers. The right technology tools can uncover financial opportunity, driving profitability by solving business problems the customers don’t notice,” said Ben Wiesen, vice president of products and services, CLI. “The combination of Rand McNally and CLI enables better service to customers while providing the data and insight necessary to take advantage of the great opportunities that exist.”
The FACTS system assists LTL, TL, and multi-stop carriers in reducing staffing resources allocated to billing and IT, CLI said. It also improves cash flow due to accurate and rapid processing of bills and increased driver productivity with better routing.
Rand McNally’s mobile fleet management line of products will provide data for the FACTS system, allowing for enhancements to CLI’s service such as last-mile visibility, real-time status along the delivery chain, improved safety, and cost savings via monitoring of driver and vehicle performance.
“Through our new partner CLI, a company who has focused on providing business solutions via technology since 1972, LTL companies and other freight carriers will be able to reap the benefits of mobile communications,” said Jim Rodi, senior vice president, mobile communications group, Rand McNally. “Our integration helps provide visibility of a shipment from first to last mile and helping ensure compliance, while being able to monitor vehicle and driver behavior.”
