Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) February 09, 2016
MacroPoint, creators of patented freight tracking software designed to give 3rd party visibility into load status by tracking the location of a driver’s mobile phone, including flip phones, or existing in-cab ELD/GPS devices, today announced an integration with project44, a provider of web-service API connectivity technology to the freight industry. The new integration enables MacroPoint’s accurate location-specific freight tracking capabilities on project44’s web-service network for less–than-truckload (LTL) shipments.
“project44 has invested years of development to create our technological infrastructure and deep network of API connections with carriers and technology providers,” said Wally Ibrahim, CTO and co-founder of project44. “This new integration with MacroPoint makes it possible for our shipper, 3PL and brokerage clients to connect a more robust, single source of end-to-end, granular and actionable shipping data into their IT platforms.”
Used with a driver’s mobile phone, including flip phones, or existing in-cab ELD/GPS devices, MacroPoint’s patented location monitoring and tracking software gives third parties load status and location visibility on their shipments. With MacroPoint, brokers, 3PLs and shippers have real-time location tracking, delivery monitoring, and event notifications that enhance the efficiency and profitability of their operations.
“MacroPoint’s cost effective load tracking solution combined with project44’s cloud-based Freight APIs will now provide shippers and 3PLs with more opportunities to connect with carriers in real time,” said Glynn Spangenberg, senior vice president/general manager of MacroPoint. “This new partnership will give our mutual customers the value of the most accurate track and trace information seamlessly and automatically.”
