Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) May 11, 2011

McLeod Software, a leading provider of transportation management software, announces the release of LoadMaster® and PowerBroker™ Version 10.2 today.

These new versions of the company’s flagship products for carriers, private fleets, and freight brokers incorporate functionality to help companies collect and manage information from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration for the CSA program.

Not only can freight brokers monitor the CSA scores of their carriers, the new version 10.2 release added more analytics to help brokers keep track of costs, margins, and revenue.

Carriers running LoadMaster Enterprise can keep track of the CSA BASICS for each of their drivers with downloads from the FMCSA Compass Portal. New functions in LoadMaster also allow carriers to input roadside inspection data from drivers before it shows up in FMCSA database. New reports accompany these CSA compliance management enhancements to the LoadMaster system, reports that give carriers details about each driver’s inspection history, past violations, and documented corrective actions. Together these tools will help carriers begin to manage their BASIC’s and document their compliance efforts within the LoadMaster system.

Other new features in the LoadMaster version 10.2 release give carriers better tools to manage driver home time, monitor trailer sensor data, streamline customer quotes, and monitor customer activity levels based on historical patterns.

Both the LoadMaster Enterprise and PowerBroker version 10.2 releases will begin shipping immediately.
