Leveraging Xora's GPS Time Track technology, Power Freight Systems (PFS), a rapidly growing third-party logistics (3PL) provider, has improved the ability to track daily pick up and delivery activities and record the current locations of the company's drivers in real time.
The GPS Time Track product, first introduced by Xora in 2003, turns GPS (global positioning system)-enabled cell phones carried by PFS drivers into an integral part of Power Freight's logistics management operations. The phone-based software enables dispatch staff to track and record where their vehicles are at any given time, including transit times and when they arrive at and leave a delivery location. Back at PFS logistics centers, management can access Web-based maps and business reports that show the locations and status of drivers in real time.
The new system significantly improves customer support responsiveness, adds depth to PFS' back office analytic capabilities, and enables the company to better utilize the capacity of their transportation fleet.
Power Freight Systems CEO Malcolm Winspear is enthusiastic about the new capabilities, stating, "At Power Freight, we're committed to embracing and leveraging new tools. However, we never do this for the sake of the technology alone. With GPS Time Track we recognize an obvious value -- customers get better service, our staff are better informed, and our operations run more efficiently."
Power Freight Systems specializes in time-sensitive, customized logistics solutions. Progressive use of cutting-edge technology is the hallmark of the company's commitment to set and improve the changing standards of the industry.
