Truckload carriers C.R. England and Knight Transportation each recently announced they were investing in new software aimed at making its routing and fuel purchasing more efficient.
C.R. England, Salt Lake City, said that it brought online load planning software from Manhattan Associates’ Carrier suite. Knight, Phoenix, said it licensed fuel pricing and routing software from TMW Systems.
