Software designer and developer Carrier Logistics has launched its FACTSmap version 2.0, said to offer dispatchers increased routing optimization capabilities and ease of use, for its FACTS transportation software suite.
Current customers who have the FACTS total freight-management system with the optional FACTSmap 1.0 module are entitled to a free upgrade. The new version offers many enhancements.
Among them, there’s the ability to provide ETA alerts for shipments that have become delayed and will not make their scheduled delivery times. There are real-time alerts when traffic jams occur, enabling trucks to take an alternate route to avoid delays.
Users also have increased flexibility to manage dispatching and operations at multiple terminals instead of just one.
As well, there’s the ability to switch pickups and deliveries from one driver to another by a click of the mouse.
Geo-coding enables dispatchers to re-direct shipments headed to the wrong location, avoiding late deliveries.
