LeanLogistics Issues App for Fleet Planning and Execution

LeanLogistics has added LeanFleet, a tool to streamline truck-fleet planning and execution, to its transportation-management system (TMS).

LeanFleet allows shippers to plan and execute their private fleet and contract carriers on the same platform, with visibility across the entire transportation network. Shippers can optimize fleet routes, reduce empty miles and maximize use of their assets, the vendor said. The system automates the assignment of drivers to trucks based on a scoring algorithm, which evaluates information such as the driver’s current location, personal calendar and hours of service. Shippers can integrate their telematics into the TMS and utilize its features in one workflow. They can receive updates on a driver’s arrival and departure based on their geofence, transmit load details, and communicate with the driver via messaging.
