Gain drivers’ loyalty by giving them real input about the loads they actually want.
McLeod’s LoadMaster Trip Management product gives carriers the tools to interactively plan details of trips with the driver’s input, and actively manage those trips while they are underway.
Using a driver’s current HOS and position information, a trip plan is created and displayed in LoadMaster. Taking into account road conditions, live and historical traffic patterns, and driver breaks provides better visibility for customers to enhance the accuracy of real-time ETA at customer stops and actual arrival time at locations, giving planners and driver managers the ability to proactively deal with potential service incidents at future stops.
Using all of this information to account for events, rest breaks, delays, detention, changing situations in weather, and even re-routing when necessary, allows planners to generate a significantly better dispatch trip plan. The interactive nature of McLeod’s new Trip Management module gives the driver the opportunity to be part of the planning process.
