PCS Software Launches Prime Express For Driver-Load Matching Automation

Logistics Tech Outlook | Friday, September 02, 2022

Shippers and carriers benefit from an AI-driven transportation management platform to optimize load planning.

Fremont, CA: The logistics sector has begun to include artificial intelligence (AI) technologies such as intelligent transportation, route planning, and demand planning into their operations during the past several years, but this is only the beginning. AI significantly impacts logistics, from last-mile delivery robots and sustainability solutions to warehouse automated picking systems and predictive optimization tools.

PCS Software (PCS), leading transportation management (TMS) platform provider in North America for shippers, carriers, and brokerages, released Prime Express, a novel AI-driven Transportation Management Platform (TMP) that optimally matches loads, assets, and drivers across supply chains.

Prime Express is an innovative departure from the usual model of Transportation Management Software (TMS). Several suppliers are already developing TMS solutions for certain segments of the transportation and logistics industry. However, PCS Software takes a comprehensive approach to create the first-of-its-kind TMP: a unified web-based platform that streamlines load planning and dispatches for the shipper and the carrier.

The initial release gets supplied as a web portal that can get accessed through PCS subscribers' existing TMS systems. The platform uses the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to provide immediate and direct benefits that standard TMS systems do not offer.

Prime Express provides users with immediate and optimal driver-load matching decisions and recommendations using a sleek, modern user interface. Users can execute the recommendations with a single click by integrating them with their TMS dispatch routines.

"Change is the only constant in the fast-moving transportation and logistics industry. In the current inflationary environment, companies need higher levels of automation and visibility to succeed," said Paul Beavers, Chief Technology Officer of PCS Software. "The release of Prime Express comes at the perfect time. With access to powerful load and driver optimization technology in a single, easy-to-use platform, shippers and carriers of all sizes will be able to increase efficiency and sharpen their competitive edge."

Prime Express eliminates time-consuming processes and maximizes the return on human capital for businesses in daily operations. Prime Express determines the best mix of drivers and cargoes by considering various characteristics such as asset location, driver availability, equipment type, and much more.
