Member News

DAT Solutions announced last week the introduction of DAT OnTime, a load tracking application that enables freight brokers and third-party logistics (3PL) professionals to monitor the location and status of their managed freight using an app installed on the driver’s smartphone.

DAT OnTime is designed specifically for freight intermediaries, who are responsible for managing the intricacies of thousands of freight deliveries, but do not have technology on board the trucks themselves.

If you have news you would like to share with other TIA members, send it to us and we'll place it in the next issue of Logistics Weekly.
