Radiant Adds Crown Data Systems to Shipping Service
Radiant Logistics Boosts Service to Shippers with Crown Data Systems
Buffalo, NY – February 25, 2010 – Radiant Logistics has aligned with Crown Data Systems to leverage the company’s ability to receive electronic shipment tracking information from domestic trucking partners. Through Radiant’s trucking partners using Crown’s dispatch software, shipment statuses are immediately sent to Radiant’s computer systems.
Shipment data populates Radiant’s global tracking system in near real-time, since many Crown users are providing their drivers with Crown’s 2-way data solution through Nextel. Without EDI interfaces, the traditional industry method of phone calls, faxes and emails to track shipments was the norm.
“Radiant Global Logistics operating the brands of Adcom Worldwide and Airgroup remain committed to delivering our clients world class transportation and data solutions”, said Noel Howard, Vice President, Domestic Services of Radiant. “Via the Crown Data Systems platform Radiant is able to leverage the network of Crown users to extend electronic data gathering efforts. This coupled with our existing footprint of 70+ locations positions Radiant Global Logistics as an on-time carrier with real time data.”
“As we continue our commitment to data management we seek electronic methods and partners to expedite visibility to the consumer level” adds Howard. “Crown Data Systems creates that extension, keeping our customers in touch at each shipment milestone. These methods produce comfort, security and visibility whether a client tenders a single shipment or thousands of shipments in a distribution.”
“Having the last mile shipment statuses and PODs quickly available from trucking companies to their freight forwarding clients continues to be a challenge as freight forwarders work to incrementally improve service with their shipping customers” said Bruce McLelland, Sale Manager for Crown. “The same efficiencies that have emerged through the automation Crown has provided to our trucking customers over the years are now being leveraged for the benefit of the overall industry with partners such as Radiant.”
