“We are pioneers in introducing cutting-edge technologies to intermodal landscape. We keep pace with customers and substantial industry changes,” states Brian Widell, President, Profit Tools. The leadership at Profit Tools is well aware of market trends like intermodal brokerage and growing preference of transporters for operational independence. The company enables clients to move freight with any combination of drivers, independent contractor drivers, and third party carriers. Profit Tools provides intermodal trucking software solution to enable the clients to perform operations in an automated fashion. “Our solution helps them to perform the operations in an efficient manner and in full compliance with the regulations,” says Widell. The solution captures crucial data-points like proof of delivery (POD), order information, deadlines, and schedules.
The platform anchors subsequent processes like movement rating, calculating the cost of shipment movement on the previously captured data. The web and mobile friendly trucking solution endues customers as well as drivers with visibility into the operations. As the drivers receive real time information on their handheld devices, their dispatch office visits cease to continue.
We want to overcome business and technological challenges for our clients
Case in point is M&J Logistics and Eagle Intermodal, which is headquartered in Chicago, IL—managing 170 drivers with operations in several states. The management team of the clients had been experiencing a number of challenges such as running a dynamic operation manually by using T-cards and hand written assignments. The practice had been the genesis of tons of paperwork and barrage of phone calls. Again, the paperwork and the practice of daily manual report generation had become inefficient and time-consuming activity for the clients. After deploying Profit Tools’ intermodal trucking solution, the clients were able to register 15 percent business growth for two consecutive years, 50 percent increase in productivity. “Profit Tools was the perfect solution to streamline all of the company needs,” says Musa Mohammed, CEO, M&J Logistics.
“We create the success stories akin to M&J Logistics and Eagle Intermodal due to our customer orientedness,” informs Widell. “And we take pride in our clientele, which is our companion in our journey since inception.” Profit Tools discerns the client feedback, listens to the technological and operational problems, and offers solutions accordingly. The firms’ future roadmap is in tandem with the business requirements and technological advancements. “At the end of the day, we want to overcome business and technological challenges for our clients,” concludes Widell.
