NFI Chooses MacroPoint for Load Tracking

MacroPoint, creators of patented freight tracking software designed to give 3rd party visibility into load status, today announced that NFI, a fully integrated supply chain solutions provider, has implemented its solution to enhance load tracking capabilities within its brokerage service offering.

“We chose MacroPoint to fill a gap in the track and trace function of our business,” said David Broering, SVP, Integrated Solutions at NFI. “MacroPoint gives us another tool to use to provide our carrier partners with options for updating us with the location of the loads they’re hauling. With MacroPoint we will also be able to track more loads with the same number of people, allowing us to scale our business faster without having to incur additional overhead costs.”

NFI, headquartered in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, is a privately held company that provides dedicated transportation, warehousing, intermodal, brokerage, transportation management, global, real estate, and trailer storage services. The more than $1.1 billion operation has 25 million square feet of warehouse and distribution space and a company-owned fleet of over 2,000 tractors and 8,200 trailers, operated by more than 2,600 company drivers and 250 owner operators.

Activated on the mobile phones of drivers hired by NFI’s carrier partners, MacroPoint’s location tracking software provides load status and location visibility. With MacroPoint, the company now has real-time location tracking, on-time delivery monitoring, and arrival/departure notifications, eliminating the need for third parties to check in to receive load status reports.
