January 4th, 2007 - FACTS System's State-of-the-Art Technology
Integrates Data Entry, Billing, Rating, and Tracing
Rexdale, Ont., January 2, 2007 - Purolator Courier Ltd., Canada's
largest courier company, has chosen the Carrier Logistics Inc. FACTS
system to support the growth of its new freight division, Purolator
FACTS is a total freight management system developed by Carrier
Logistics Inc. (CLI), a Tarrytown, New York-based transportation
systems consultant and technology developer. The system will give
Purolator Freight employees greater accessibility to information
in real time. By providing improved line-of-sight in real time and
a lean communication flow, the system will enable employees to reap
the benefits of sharper decision making and more accurate assessments
of the business.
"The system will give Purolator Freight's customers greater
access to billing, administrative, and operating information in
real time," said Joe Guimond, vice president and general manager
of Purolator Freight. FACTS, based on advanced open architecture,
offers LTL and parcel delivery carriers a low cost of ownership
by reducing administrative costs for rating, billing, and dispatch.
A major component of the new system will be the new Purolator Freight
website (www.purolatorfreight.com) where information on shipments
will be powered by the FACTS system. The website will feature the
capability to trace shipments, view freight charges, retrieve images,
generate pickup requests, and more.
"We are pleased that after a lengthy and thorough RFP process,
Purolator Freight has chosen CLI and our FACTS system," said
Ken Weinberg, vice president of CLI. "We're proud of the fact
that CLI was chosen to provide Purolator Freight with both consultation
and software solutions and we look forward to a successful relationship
for years to come."
