MacroPoint completes freight tracking integration with Manhattan Associates

Mp Mobile Phone 2016 06 20 11 43MacroPoint, creator of freight tracking software, has completed integration with the Manhattan Associates Transportation Management System (TMS), making it the first freight visibility platform in the Manhattan Value Partner program (MVP).

“Joining Manhattan Associates’ MVP program is a testament to the value of our supply chain visibility software,” said Dan Cicerchi, chief operating officer of MacroPoint. The MacroPoint Carrier Visibility Network has over 1 million drivers and millions of connected trucks, he said.

Manhattan Associates is a software provider of supply chain and omni-channel commerce systems used by more than 1,200 global customers. Its software unites information from across the enterprise, converging front-end sales with back-end supply chain execution.

The partnership with MacroPoint offers access to real-time, off-schedule freight tracking alerts and arrival and departure location monitoring. The companies say the exception-based approach permits Manhattan customers to modify plans in the event of unforeseen route or network changes.

“The goal of the MVP program is to deliver comprehensive and value added omni-channel and supply chain solutions to Manhattan’s ever-increasing group of customers,” said Jeff Cashman, senior vice president, business development, Manhattan Associates. “MacroPoint is a valued contributor amongst a group of partners with whom our existing TMS capabilities are further enhanced by simplifying, optimizing and reducing costs for our customers.”
