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 that Bennett Adelson, president of MacroPoint will be a featured speaker at the HighJump Elevate 2016 User Conference in Orlando, Florida on Monday, March 7, 2016. Adelson’s presentation-- Total Visibility in the Supply Chain— will be part of an agenda of informative, in-depth sessions on industry trends and market needs.
“Providing freight brokers, shippers, third party logistic providers and carriers with real-time locations of the loads they’ve contracted out is an essential part of providing complete visibility across the supply chain,” Adelson said. “The ability to automatically track loads using MacroPoint is a powerful tool for enhancing customer service and addressing issues that may occur. We are looking forward to explaining the benefits of load tracking and our seamless integrated solution with HighJump to customers attending the company’s user conference.”
Announced at the 2014 Transportation Intermediaries Association Conference, the MacroPoint integration with HighJump, a leading supply chain execution software provider, tracks loads including arrivals and departures from stops and provides position updates. The seamless interface with HighJump’s Prophesy Dispatch TMS automatically transfers load information from MacroPoint, reducing the need for check calls and provides event notifications that enhance the efficiency and profitability of operations.
