Trucker Tools LLC, which provides shipment visibility, carrier capacity management and predictive freight-matching solutions for the transportation industry, announced that England Logistics has signed on to the Trucker Tools platform and implemented several of the company’s cloud-based applications and tools.

Headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, England Logistics offers a vast portfolio of non-asset-based transportation solutions that include full truckload services, intermodal, dry and temperature-controlled LTL and parcel. England Logistics also has a separate SCM Division that offers complete supply chain management services.

England Logistics selected Trucker Tools after a thorough evaluation of market offerings and solutions, noted Michelle Potter, senior director, strategic development for England Logistics. “This is a highly strategic engagement for us,” Potter said. “Implementing and integrating with the Trucker Tools platform will help streamline our brokerage business processes, enhance capacity management, decision-making and the delivery of timely, quality information to our customers.”

England Logistics, which works with thousands of trucking providers, has launched and deployed a new suite of Trucker Tools applications, including:

  • Smart Capacity Freight Matching. Provides predictive freight-matching through real-time visibility into capacity, with trusted, accurate intelligence identifying when and where independent carriers have available trucks. Using powerful algorithms to optimally rank and match selected carriers with a load, Smart Capacity helps brokers and carriers dramatically reduce the time and cost to find and secure a load, while increasing accuracy and providing advance planning and location visibility into future truck capacity.
  • Smart Capacity Automated Load Tracking. Provides real-time shipment visibility information derived from the Trucker Tools mobile app, which has been downloaded by over 600,000 truck drivers. The mobile app integrates with a smart phone’s GPS software to continually capture, in real time, precise location data, which is then transmitted over Trucker Tools’ confidential, secure network, and displayed to users in a clean and easy to navigate interface.

“Our primary goal is to enhance the logistics process for all parties involved,” stated Shaun Beardall, vice president of Brokerage Services at England Logistics. “Aligning England Logistics’ efforts with the resources available through Trucker Tools empowers our customers in their business operations.”

“I’m excited to welcome England Logistics to the Trucker Tools family,” said Prasad Gollapalli, the company’s founder and CEO. “We are honored to have won their trust and support, and we look forward to helping them drive efficiencies into brokerage operations, build strong carrier relationships, and increase shipment tracking compliance, quality and timeliness with their carriers.”
