Clark Freightways Optimizes Operations and Productivity with Robocom's Enterprise Transportation System
FARMINGDALE, N.Y. and MARKHAM, Ontario, May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Clark Freightways has realized improved business results and greater business integration through its implementation of Robocom's Enterprise Transportation System.
A case study released today by Robocom Systems International finds that British Columbia based Clark Freightways has improved productivity, reduced cost and seamlessly integrated all aspects of its operations through Centerline, Robocom's Enterprise Transportation System. Serving more than 600 communities throughout BC, Clark Freightways uses Centerline to operate a fleet of over 175 trailers, 75 power units and multiple branches and agents distributed throughout the province.
Greg Rogge, General Manager and Vice President of Clark Freightways said, "The primary reason for implementing Centerline was to enable the flow of information within our company and externally with our customers. Our customers need to know what is happening with their orders, and they need up-to-date information."
Since implementing Centerline, Rogge says his expectations have been exceeded. Reflecting on the ease with which multiple tasks are performed, Greg Rogge concludes his assessment of Robocom's Centerline solution: "Companies make changes either to save money or provide something of value to their customers. Centerline does both!"
"Centerline is a resource planning and operations management tool that automates the business processes of a transportation company and delivers optimal control over the entire shipping process," said Fred Radcliffe, Robocom President. "The results achieved by Clark Freightways demonstrate the ongoing value Centerline delivers to Less-Than-Load (LTL) and Truck Load (TL) businesses."
