McLeod Software announced the availability of LoadMaster V9.0. Key components of the new release include:

  • An enhancement to the Customer and Order Entry screens to show actual available credit information, not just over or under the credit limit, so carriers can confirm the credit amount is sufficient.

  • Multiple enhancements to the ETA/Out-of-Route module to better manage late and out-of-route status based on user-defined controls; a new late status for assigning the reason (such as weather, traffic, accident) is coupled with new filtering capabilities by driver, route, or dispatcher and a report of active late stops; includes changes to the ETA notifier to warn users based on the type of late status.

  • Order Planning and Driver Management screens now include ETA information along with confirmation on which drivers have received and acknowledged preassigned movements via mobile communications devices.

  • A new Trailer Detention report to assist in negotiating rates or billing customers based on dropped days past the free-day limit; includes the ability to apply up to five daily rates once a trailer is detained past an allowed number of days.

  • The creation of a Top Driver Report based on revenue with multiple filters.

  • New interfaces with the DriverFACTS safety and accident reporting system and StarTrak's ReeferTrak trailer tracking system.
