FACTSTM Complete Highway Dispatch

Carrier Logistics’ Highway System is a Linehaul and Equipment Management application designed to aid in the coordination and control of trailer moves within ground transportation companies. The module is composed of several utilities to manage highway moves between one terminal/depot and another, making it easy to control, monitor, and track all rolling stock and resources within your organization. Dispatchers can rely on real-time decision support to make the best use of your routes, equipment, and drivers.

Highlights:

  • Single or multiple trips can be pre-scheduled or created on the fly
  • Select drivers and equipment based on availability
  • See drive times and ETAs between stops
  • Record driver notes and specific trip instructions
  • Track all relevant information needed for detailed driver pay or settlement records
  • Update dispatch and arrival trips all from the same screen 

Route Planning

A key component to the success of any multi-stop freight operation is the ability to properly plan and balance routes prior to loading your trailers. FACTS™ Decision Support facilitates the planning of a driver’s workload long before the delivery or pickup has even been scheduled. At the heart of the FACTSTM is the concept of grid or geo-coded-based routing. Grid-based routing is a systematic scheme of pickup and delivery route planning based on your service area’s historical and geographic information.

The system will pinpoint the location of every stop — even for first-time customers — and will assign stops to drivers, taking into consideration such factors as the location of the consignee, number of pieces and weight of the shipment, special customer requirements, special handling requirements, and arrival times. This is all done behind the scenes. If workload varies depending on the day of the week, week of the month, or month of the year, with proper setup you can produce different route plans in which routes can be consolidated, dropped, or added to your standard plan. Using “Delivery Support,” the routes can be further balanced and sequenced to better optimize the day’s operation.

Highlights:

  • See what the system has planned for your drivers before they start their day
  • Auto-logic removes the guesswork as to whose route a stop belongs to
  • Drag and drop stops from one route to another when making changes on the fly
  • Shipment info can be displayed many different ways
  • Once verified by dispatch, route plans can be sent to drivers automatically in real time
  • Route planning is complemented by our Location Intelligence digital mapping tool
