project44 partners with MacroPoint on freight tracking

The companies have integrated their freight industry API platform and third-party load tracking software integrate to provide project44 customers with real-time status capability.

   The freight tracking software provider MacroPoint this week said it has integrated with project44, a provider of web-service application program interfaces for the freight industry.
   MacroPoint’s software is designed to give shippers and logistics providers visibility into third-party loads by tracking the location of a driver’s mobile phone, including flip phones, or existing in-cab electronic logging or GPS devices.
   The integration with project44’s API connectivity technology gives project44’s web service customers access to MacroPoint’s location-specific freight tracking capabilities on less–than-truckload (LTL) shipments.
   “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,” said Wally Ibrahim, chief technology officer and co-founder of project44.
   project44 acts as a connectivity hub linking shippers and carriers through APIs, a more flexible and interactive communication format than electronic data interchange. Carriers’ separate APIs are routed through project 44 and delivered to a shipper’s TMS in a standard format. And when a certain carrier’s API is set up through Project 44 for a certain shipper, it becomes available to any other shipper that uses project 44.
   Read more about project44 and APIs in the American Shipper October cover story, “A new communications pipeline?” also available in the digital edition of the magazine.
   “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.
    Learn more about MacroPoint and cargo visibility in the December American Shipper webinar, “Where’s My Brokered Load?”: The Path to Visibility for Brokered Freightebinar with MacroPoint and TMW Systems.
