Carrier Logistics introduces AI tool to assist during Coronavirus pandemic

Carrier Logistics Inc. (CLI), has introduced LOCI, an artificial intelligence (AI) tool for determining the exact location type for a pick-up or delivery.

The company says this new module improves the efficiency of the supply chain by providing automation around how to manage different customer location types. LOCI works with FACTS, a total freight management solution, to give users detailed information on a pick-up or delivery address, and apply business rules regarding how to best service those addresses.

CLI says LOCI gives users over 115 categories of locations, full integration into the FACTS shipment entry and rating modules, the ability to plan and dispatch the right driver with the right equipment and automated assigning of a carrier’s accessorials.

“We know that right now, many carriers are servicing different customers and locations than they have in the past,” said Ben Wiesen, president of CLI. “And we know that staff at the carriers is in a state of flux, with people covering dispatch who might not have the tribal knowledge about the customer base. And of course, we know how confusing that can be. In order to assist our clients during these turbulent times, and even as the economy starts to open up, we are offering this emerging technology for free through June 30.”
