Dallas, TX – McLeod Software, leading freight management and transportation platform provider, has announced a strategic partnership with Highway, enabling Carrier Identity management for PowerBroker users to revolutionize their processes for building and maintaining reliable carrier networks.
Highway brings best-in-class features to reduce the risk associated with adding new carriers, eliminate the manual effort required to ensure carriers remain compliant, and drive sourcing decisions by centralizing all carrier data to a single platform.
“Through Highway’s enhanced onboarding and monitoring capabilities, brokers get alerts and insights for new and existing carrier relationships. This integration provides data-rich carrier visibility so brokers can be confident they’re working with only qualified carriers,” said Ahmed Ebrahim, Vice President, Partner Alliances at McLeod Software.
With just one click, brokers can quickly add carriers to PowerBroker, while the option of a broker-branded carrier registration website reduces the friction for new carriers to register to the system. Highway's near real-time access to insurance certificates and updates, insight into scheduled auto policies by VIN, and rules assessment values make it easy to identify and qualify carriers. Monitoring features keep carrier information up-to-date from equipment types and preferred lanes of operation to important documents.
“Highway is changing the way brokers connect with and manage their carriers. We are the only provider on the market focused on Carrier Identity through a single sign-on that works directly with a broker’s chosen carrier digital experience,” said Michael Caney, Chief Commercial Officer of Highway.
With the integration of Highway, McLeod gives brokers the unparalleled ability to secure their carrier networks and improve the effectiveness of their vetting while creating process efficiencies. Brokers get the data and tools they need to make better-informed decisions for approving carriers and sourcing capacity, all from McLeod’s industry-leading PowerBroker solution.
