Blue Tree Systems Inc and McLeod Software have announced the integration of Blue Tree System’s R:COM trailer tracking and temperature management system with McLeod’s LoadMaster Enterprise trucking dispatch operations management system. The interface will provide carriers with real-time visibility to trailer positions, temperatures, and other cargo sensors while in transit.

Carriers using R:COM and LoadMaster will have visibility to trailer positions, receive trailer status updates, and can set temperature limits for any given load so abnormal conditions or temperature alarms are detected and brought to the attention of the right people immediately. Alarm reports for sensors such as refrigerated unit power/battery can also be delivered via the LoadMaster Rapid Alert module. In addition, load temperature history is maintained in the LoadMaster system for each load, giving carriers proof that specified temperatures were maintained throughout the entire dispatch process.

“The integration of R:COM with LoadMaster means that our customers can not only provide better customer service and overall improved load management but they are now provided with the information necessary to make swift and early decisions in order to prevent load spoilage and cargo claims,” said Charlie Cahill, chief executive officer of Blue Tree Systems.

“We are very happy to have Blue Tree Systems as a new partner at McLeod Software,” said Tom McLeod, CEO and founder of McLeod Software. “We believe our customers will recognize the value that our integration solution with R:COM can bring to their business, especially for our temperature-controlled carriers.”
