Bourque Logistics, a provider of logistics software for industrial shippers, has introduced the latest version of YardMaster Truck, a one-stop software solution designed to address all tasks for weighing, inspection, documentation and shipping operations for bulk and liquid products by truck, as well as the same for inbound loaded trucks.
YardMaster Truck 2.0 supports truck inspection management, scale integration for automated weight capture and scale ticket printing. The module also is designed to manage the loading of liquid products and to provide volume correction calculations based on product temperature and gravity or density. Tank and product associations can be made and validation checks can be performed at the time of loading/off-loading.
YardMaster Truck 2.0 provides functionality designed to allow shippers to generate a bill of lading and customs documentation from an order, pattern or manually. At time of arrival, the software module enables check-in processing for driver and carrier credentials if required, and the bill of lading destination can be modified if needed.
“Our customers have asked for this added capability, and now we provide it,” says Steve Bourque, president of Bourque Logistics. “With over 200 plant and terminal facilities using the YardMaster system for rail shipments, our clients can now leverage the same process for their truck shipping operations. Our partnership with Industrial Networks’ weigh scale, signature pad and tablet field devices will allow automated data capture for a more efficient shipping process.”
Using YardMaster Truck, the user can print the bill of lading for the driver and automatically e-mail a PDF copy of the BOL to partners and customers; this application soon will be enhanced to provide a Web interface for client and carrier scheduling. The software module also features seal capture, operator and/or driver signature capture and check-out processing using signature pads. The application is designed to integrate with other systems for product analysis as well as client order and accounting systems for shipment confirmation.
