The FreightDATA Intermodal software package is an integrated, full featured enterprise software solution to meet the needs of rail and harbor transportation companies. The Intermodal application includes Dispatch, Rating, Billing, A/R, A/P, G/L, Owner/Operator Payables, Management & Financial Reporting, Tracking & Tracing, Driver Management & Pay, Credit
& Collections, Equipment Maintenance, Sales & Commissions, Statistics
& History and Calendaring & Messaging. Extended solutions may
include Payroll, EDI, Fax, Imaging, Wireless/Mobile Technologies and Web
Tracing. The FreightDATA system can also interface to other systems such as
PC*Miler, ProMiles, ODBC programs and 3rd party accounting and
rail/harbor tracing systems.
The System is designed to allow the transportation company flexibility and control in all the areas of concern in the movement of freight in and out of the terminals and yards. Automated rating in a multi-user environment allows you to create and maintain personalized customer rating for all phases of intermodal movements.
Entering information into the computer at the moment of notification allows the system to automatically trace/track the movement of your container from beginning to end of the move. This data is kept in memory for easy reference at a later date, providing easy access to everyone on the system. Constant updating of information as the container moves through dispatch ensures
proper billing of per diem charges and any accessorial services. The system automatically calculates and logs all per diem and detention charges. The system offers options to print or fax accessorial authorization letters against
applicable loads. When using a paper system this information easily gets lost in the shuffle.
Each rail and ship line's individual interchange agreements can be set up in the system (e.g. free days, pools, etc.). At the end of each business day the freight activity is posted to the General Ledger, Accounts Receivable, and various statistical files. All information about any freight bill is available on any screen on the system. Payments for Owner-Operators can
be automatically calculated when the driver information is entered and adjustments may be made up until the check is issued.
