April 14, 2005 — DHL Express Canada, Mississauga,
Ontario, a Canadian package delivery carrier, has chosen the FACTS
highway freight operations management system, designed by Carrier
Logistics Inc., Tarrytown, N.Y. The system provides full control
of manifesting, trip management, driver settlements, equipment control,
and fuel tax reporting. It provides a complete set of operations
reports and other management tools.
DHL expects the system to help achieve more precise control of operations:
- Locating missing trailers
- Developing accurate costing per load or per trip
- Creating performance reports: scheduled vs. actual times at
selected locations, planned vs. actual trip times, etc.
- Matching accounts payable to actual trips to avoid paying for
trips not made
"DHL found that the FACTS highway system has the capability
to support the company's expedited freight service," said Ken
Weinberg, vice president of CLI. "The system, based on advanced
open architecture, offers package delivery and LTL carriers a low
cost of ownership."
DHL has 160,000 employees and an international network that links
more than 220 countries and territories worldwide. The company is
owned by Deutsche Post, which is challenging UPS and Fedex globally.
Carrier Logistics Inc., has provided software solutions for more
than 30 years and is best known for its LTL solutions.
