PeopleNet has partnered with Carrier Logistics to use PeopleNet Link as a way to retrieve and populate data into CLI's Facts software, according to Ken Weinberg, vice president of CLI
. The integration will speed up the communication between drivers and dispatchers, he said.

"Drivers for some of the carriers using our software currently phone in information to dispatchers who manually enter it into our Facts system," Weinberg said. "Now they can integrate GPS location data, along with inbound, outbound and freeform messaging data, to leverage Facts more fully. PeopleNet is the conduit for automating and streamlining additional processes and workflows that integrate with Facts."

"With the added ability to create PACOS Geofencing dispatches, key in-transit, arrival and departure events will be communicated back to Facts and drivers will experience ease-of-use and automation throughout the process," said Randy Boyles, vice president of tailored solutions at PeopleNet.

Facts is CLI's stand-alone freight-management system, which integrates routing and dispatch capabilities with billing and administrative functionality. It also includes a complete financial suite for the less-than-truckload and small-package industries.

According to Joe Dohrn, vice president of Dohrn Transfer Company, Rock Island, Ill., a CLI customer, the new capability will add to the tools currently being used by dispatchers.

"We're planning to use the PeopleNet Link and PeopleNet mobile communications system to automate the entry of stop updates and load data," said Dohrn. "We believe the system's geofencing capability, an advanced form of GPS, will help our dispatchers keep better track of our entire fleet. Drivers and dispatchers will both save time."
