Carrier Logistics Enhances Dock System

Carrier Logistics Inc., a freight management software provider, announced that it added new features to its dock management system.

Carrier Logistics, Tarrytown, N.Y., said its technology has new features, such as preventing loading on the wrong trailer, capturing the dimensions of a shipment, tracking on a per-piece basis and fully automated paperwork.

Other features include scanning freight by using handheld devices to eliminate errors and precise shipment location information, the company said in a June 7 statement.

In addition, the product tracks shipments — and who handled them — as well as incorporating information as to when shipments are reweighed to assure proper pricing of a load.
