TransCore’s Canadian Loadlink Service Enhances Logistics Freight and Equipment Matching Tools with Google Maps
TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TransCore’s Canadian-based Link Logistics announces the integration of Google Maps™ API Premier into its Loadlink® logistics freight matching service. This major value-added integration allows Loadlink customers to map the origin and destination of all freight and equipment postings and matching leads with the ease of widely used and recognized Google Maps.
Loadlink subscribers across Canada benefit from the convenience of mapping all their freight and truck matches based on the preferred sorting criteria they use to organize their search. Customers also have the option of viewing their leads in satellite and street views from Google Maps, providing them with a complete overview of available freight and equipment. The integrated Google Maps service enables dispatchers to make quick decisions based on the mapped coordinates within their Loadlink application without the time consuming process of searching multiple applications to find locations.
The deployment of this feature for Loadlink.net version 2.8 users will be seamlessly integrated into the service without requiring any configuration changes. This value added service will be available to all Platinum customers at no additional charge this year.
TransCore’s Claudia Milicevic explains, “Loadlink customers will experience improved dispatch and operations efficiency by optimizing their trip scheduling and logistics planning. This performance enhancing and mapping integration is part of our ongoing process to provide valuable and easy-to-use decision making tools for our customers.”
Close to 5,000 Canadian transportation companies use Loadlink every day, conducting over 1.5 million searches on the largest freight and truck matching database in Canada.
