TMW Systems Inc., a provider of enterprise transportation software for the logistics and trucking industries, announced the release of IDSC MatchAdvice Version 6.0 for its power-to-load matching application for truckload load carriers. Along with reducing dwell and in-transit delays, as well as empty miles, the software safely maximizes driver and truck utilization, the company says.
IDSC MatchAdvice enables truckload carriers to improve capacity utilization while simultaneously reducing empty miles, in many cases, by as much as 15 percent, TMW says. The software integrates with all major commercial dispatch systems, as well as custom or in-house managed operations systems.
“Our customers rely on IDSC MatchAdvice to increase loaded ratios while improving efficiency,” says David McKinney, TMW vice president of professional services. “By matching the right trucks with the right loads in the context of the entire freight network, IDSC MatchAdvice helps carriers to maximize profitability in any load planning or dispatching process.”
This latest software release incorporates additional flexibility to adapt to almost any company’s business operations, including depot-based short hauls, McKinney says. Another notable product enhancement is shift-based driver scheduling, which can help optimize worker assignments for fleets that operate in scheduled shifts, such as produce, grocery and fuel delivery companies.
“The new IDSC MatchAdvice v.6.0 can also identify multiple load consolidations onto a single truck for additional savings and efficiencies,” McKinney says.
