December 15, 2006 — DIEPPE, N.B. — Midland
Courier, a leading Canadian package delivery company, has teamed
with Carrier Logistics Inc. (CLI) to streamline their freight management
system through the use of the CLI FACTS operations management and
"We completed our transition to the FACTS system earlier this
year," said Scott MacMillan, vice president of Midland Courier.
"We chose CLI's FACTS system because of its capability to support
expedited freight service."
The system can achieve this result, said Ken Weinberg, vice president
of CLI, through accurate load scheduling and planning, automated
routing, web enabled tracking and tracing, and business intelligence
reporting. "The system is based on advanced open architecture
and offers LTL and parcel delivery carriers a low cost of ownership
by reducing administrative costs for rating, billing, and dispatch,"
"Moreover, it automatically assigns freight rates to shipments
and provides Midland Courier customers the ability to trace shipments
on-line." Midland, he said, has begun using features such as
the CLI web module enhancement, which answers shippers' questions
about rates, shipments, invoices and freight status through the
web. This frees up time for carrier employees who previously dealt
with inquiries over the phone.
Midland Courier provides next day air and fast, dependable ground
courier services across Canada. An integrated partnership network
enables the company to provide a similar service level for shipments
to U.S. and international destinations.
Carrier Logistics Inc., a leading transportation systems consultant
developer, has provided software solutions to truckers for nearly
35 years, keeping its core commitment to the LTL industry. The Tarrytown,
N.Y.-based company's customers inc1ude major Canadian, U.S., British,
and Australian LTL and other types of carriers.
