Nolan Transportation Group deploys Descartes visibility system

Atlanta-based Nolan Transportation Group (NTG), a third-party logistics company, has deployed the Descartes MacroPoint freight visibility system across its North American distribution network.

“Descartes MacroPoint is a vital piece of both our carrier and customer operations at NTG. Our customers can opt to get real-time visibility on every shipment we move,” said Perry Falk, senior vice president, carrier operations at NTG. “The drivers for our carriers can provide location updates with minimal interactions while in-transit, leaving us with happier carriers who can focus on driving safely.”

The cloud-based Descartes MacroPoint freight tracking system gives carriers, brokers, shippers and logistics service providers near real-time visibility into the location and status of every load.

NTG has integrated the Descartes system with its own transportation management system (TMS) to improve the efficiency of operations and communication of in-transit freight status.
