Knoxville, TN and Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) September 17, 2012
Spireon, Inc., the leader in Mobile Resource Management (MRM) and trailer tracking solutions and McLeod Software, one of the leading providers of transportation management software, have announced the integration of Spireon’s FleetLocate real-time trailer data into the McLeod LoadMaster® Enterprise system.
Now fleets can capture and leverage business intelligence to save significant costs, improve customer service and make faster, more profitable business decisions. FleetLocate’s real-time trailer visibility enables fleets to see which trailers are underutilized, and helps identify where there’s a real need for more trailers. This rich data also allows transportation companies to reduce their overall trailer count while maintaining the same amount of workload.
The first transportation company to use the integrated system is Tutle & Tutle Trucking based in Cleburne Texas. Integration gives Tutle & Tutle the benefit of seeing their entire fleet of trucks and trailers on one screen. Dispatchers have a complete view of tractors, trailers, drivers and loads. Now their operations team has a systematic way to track trailers within their McLeod LoadMaster dispatch system. They also receive real-time updates when their trailers move and the ability to track the actual mileage as it accumulates. In addition, the operations and maintenance personnel instantly receive a notification when a trailer is ready for service and the exact location.
“FleetLocate is unlike other trailer tracking systems, we provide continual, real-time views of the entire fleet of trailers,” says Roni Taylor, Vice President of Product Marketing for Spireon. “Through the partnership with McLeod, our customers will now receive valuable trailer reporting capabilities within McLeod’s Loadmaster software to enable them to do more with less trailers and improve overall utilization.”
