La Cañada Flintridge Calif., May 8, 2014 – ALC Logistics, the software and logistics division of the Allen Lund Company, has entered into an agreement with Locus Traxx Worldwide to integrate real-time visibility, load temperature and location tracking into the ALC Logistics TMS solution.
Kenny Lund, ALC’s Vice President of Support Services, said “We have been developing this tracking system with Locus Traxx over the past several years because we understand that visibility and traceability are paramount to the produce industry.” Lund added, “The combination of automated load tracking with our TMS provides key visibility while loads are in transit.”
David Benjamin, President and CEO of Locus Traxx Worldwide stated: “We are committed to providing real-time visibility in the supply chain, actively reporting temperature and tracking the location of perishable products. As ALC’s TMS is integrated to produce, it only made sense for us to combine technologies in order to deliver necessary information faster and more efficiently.” Benjamin added, “This is a game changer for the produce industry integrating real-time visibility with ALC’s robust TMS solution that was designed by and for produce experts. When you add real-time visibility of temperature and location, and the ability to take corrective action while the product is in transit, our customers see better on time delivery, dramatically reduced claims processing and no one has to go hunting to pull data from an old-time logger.”
