“There are across the board enhancements to Facts encompassing all modules, and they all tell the same story,” said Ben Wiesen, president of CLI. “We continue to advance the solution we provide to LTL (Less-Than-Truckload) trucking companies while focusing on providing the most secure platform. LTL carriers will be more profitable due to advanced dock management and Robotic Processing Automation (RPA). At the same time, we provide ‘cybersecurity’ in terms of a hardened platform coupled with a return to operability guarantee, should there be any issues. These capabilities, and others to follow, put us ahead of our competitors, and propel our transportation clients to new levels of success.”

CLI’s 11.4 release utilizes artificial intelligence and in particular robotic processing automation, the company says.

The company says another use of AI at CLI is in its LOC-AI (Location Management Artificial Intelligence) application that was rolled out in 2020, initially to respond to changing needs for information about shipping and receiving locations during the pandemic. The LOC-AI tool, which is integrated into the Facts shipment entry and rating modules, uses AI to provide automation around how to plan, manage and dispatch equipment and drivers for different customer locations by providing information on a pick-up or delivery address, and by applying business rules regarding how to best service those shippers.

Management of the cross dock operation, improving freight visibility and control, worker productivity and loading accuracy, is furthered by an upgraded version of the Facts Dock Management System (DMS), CLI says. The DMS in Facts 11.4 is also coupled with the company’s new visual Dock Management Board, which provides a display showing the status of all dock assignments.

The Facts 11.4 platform follows the strictest ISO/IEC 27001 security standards, the company says.
