Integrated Decision Support Corporation (IDSC), a provider of decision support software exclusively for the truckload carrier, said that Hill Brothers Transportation is a new customer of IDSC’s Trip Alert/Swap Advice software. Hill Brothers Transportation is a provider of dry-van and refrigerated services and is an existing customer of IDSC’s Netwise Enterprise and Expert Fuel solutions.
“We’ve added Trip Alert/Swap Advice to provide us with an even greater level of service and security for our customers while increasing our profitability momentum,” said Jack Christensen, operations analyst of Hill Brothers Transportation.
Trip Alert/Swap Advice provides total visibility of assets and exception and event management. It also increases driver time-at-home without impacting profit potential, the company says. Trip Alert automatically identifies the locations and times when two power units will be feasible to swap load assignments. Trip Alert recommends those swap opportunities which improve utilization, on time performance, and driver home time.
Trip Alert provides built-in capabilities to identify candidates for in-transit swaps–leveraging the data to maximize driver and equipment utilization, prevent service failures, and increase driver time at home.
