Transportation Tech Leaders

We recognize the value of information technology as it applies to the transportation business and have invested heavily in the most up-to-date satellite tracking and communication technology available.

This keeps our customers fully informed about the loads that they entrust to us. After all, real-time information relating to a shipment is just as important as the actual movement of the load itself.

We currently offer the following technologies to our customers:

  • Satellite tracking on both tractors and trailers
  • Satellite communication
  • On-board scanners for document imaging
  • Online document retrieval: Customers can retrieve their own PODs
  • Website tracking and tracing including current position of our vehicle
  • Custom reporting
  • EDI- Electronic Data Interface
  • E-mail invoicing
  • Electronic banking
