TransCore announced that Landstar System Inc. has completed integration of TransCore’s CarrierWatch monitoring service into their companywide transportation management software system.
“Through this customized system integration with CarrierWatch, we are confident we supply Landstar’s independent sales agents with the most current safety and authority data on our contracted third party carriers,” says Sandi Edwards, vice president of capacity qualifications for Jacksonville, Fla.-based Landstar.
According to TransCore, CarrierWatch integration benefits to Landstar include:
• Regulatory due diligence systematically employed into the contract motor carrier selection process;
• Continuously providing Landstar independent sales agents with the most up-to-date Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration safety and authority carrier data; and
• Paperless regulatory data retention on all carriers utilized.
“This technical collaboration with Landstar will serve as a model for other firms as they integrate critical carrier monitoring data into their TMS systems,” says Don Thornton, senior vice president of freight services for Portland, Ore.-based TransCore.
