Carrier Logistics, which provides freight management software for less-than-truckload fleets, announced an integration of its Facts freight management system with the FreightSnap dimensioning solution. The company said this can increase terminal operation efficiencies, shipment revenues, and automation.
FreightSnap dimensioning solutions use infrared sensors to automatically capture pallet or parcel measurements in seconds. The company said that traditional methods are prone to measurement and data entry errors, take more time to complete and require that information be entered manually into a transportation management system.
“By integrating the FreightSnap automated pallet and parcel dimensioning solution with our Facts system, our LTL carrier customers can easily ensure they are charging shippers accurately based on actual weight and actual dimensions of each shipment,” said Ben Wiesen, president of Carrier Logistics. “Generating a bill once using actual shipment dimensions eliminates unnecessary administrative time spent revising invoices. With FreightSnap, manually entering information is not needed – the entire process is now quicker and more accurate due to automation.”
The Carrier Logistics Facts transportation and freight management system can be deployed across a network as a single database to manage all administrative and operations functions. Facts includes a complete financial suite, and the Facts Deal Management pricing and rating module, which gives LTL freight operations the ability to properly price and rate shipments.
“Through the seamless integration enabled by CLI between its Facts system and our dimensioning solution, LTL operations can use accurate shipment data to resolve common billing issues and eliminate the need for freight audits to address incorrect invoices,” said Michael Eichenberg, CEO and co-founder of FreightSnap. Because CLI is able to automatically process the data generated by Freight Snap, load planning is also improved by the integrated solution.”
