Supply chain data aggregation firm GateHouse Logistics and US based 3PL technology provider Cargo Chief jointly announce a partnership that could see a nationwide network of more than 500,000 carriers reducing the number of empty runs on North American highways.
“Every year, American trucks travel at less than market rates or even empty for nearly half of their billion miles on our highways wasting fuel, time, labor and causing needless pollution,” says Russell Jones, Cargo Chief’s CEO. “By partnering with GateHouse Logistics, we can integrate its ghTrack technology into our data streams and provide brokers and transport companies with information in real time about trucks in specific areas that are intelligently paired with available loads to keep trucks rolling at reasonable rates.” Jones is also excited about ghTrack enabling highly accurate and ubiquitous tracking of all client truckload shipments.
“This partnership confirms the widespread applications of ghTrack technology in the logistics industry. Smart factories and their extended, just-in-sequence logistics are just a few examples and better capacity planning is yet another,” adds Jesper Bennike, CEO, GateHouse Logistics.
ghTrack is fully integrable as data-as-a-service, and its tracking and visibility data will enrich Cargo Chief solutions to provide accurate and relevant matches for freight planning.
