project44 enhances truckload tracking capabilities

The platform is designed to provide customers with insights at the “speed of thought.”

   The advanced visibility platform for shippers and third-party logistics providers project44 on Thursday unveiled a portfolio of new truckload tracking capabilities.
   The company said the newly launched capabilities further enable its growing customer base of manufacturers, retailers, distributors, wholesalers and logistics providers to meet on-demand customer expectations, lower costs while increasing productivity, reduce driver dwell time and dock congestion, better manage inventory and satisfy tight or just-in-time delivery requirements.
   In its announcement Thursday, project44 said its commitment to high-quality data provides customers deep insights at the “speed of thought,” and delivers a solid foundation for advanced, predictive analytics. More specifically, project44’s new truckload capabilities within the advanced visibility platform:
   • Deliver accurate and proactive tracking: project44 retrieves location updates from carriers via ELD, telematics, direct APIs, app-less tracking or smartphone applications and then enriches the data and applies predictive analytics to deliver more accurate, proactive Truckload arrival, pickup, location, ETA and delivery information than ever before.
   • Enable dynamic, predictive delivery times: ETAs are available pre-pickup through to delivery, dynamically change with every data point and are responsive to real-time conditions, including traffic patterns, weather and road conditions. Road constraints (i.e. maximum height or weight of a vehicle) also will be considered in order to predict the most likely driver route. Finally, driver hours of service will be factored in to predict driver idle time and further refine the accuracy of the ETA.
   • Allow for personalized notifications and more meaningful collaboration: Configurable, rule-based email, SMS, API updates or push notifications ensure that internal and external teams are empowered with the latest shipment information improving organization-wide decision-making and proactive collaboration. A multi-tiered, time-based (geofenced) threshold can be applied to trigger events allowing for more flexible altering.
   • Reduce cold chain risk with live temperature control: Track temperature in real-time across cold chains via connections to a wide variety of IoT sources, allowing users to receive alerts as soon as exceptions occur to ensure freshness and avoid loss.
   To generate the industry’s most accurate tracking information and arrival times, project44 is connected to more than 175,000 global carriers and 92 percent of all domestic ELD/telematics devices and has out-of-box integrations with 57 TMS vendors, the company said.
