Descartes Systems Group announced that it has acquired MacroPoint, an electronic transportation network providing location-based truck tracking and predictive freight capacity data content.
Acquisition   Logistics-intensive businesses
U,S.-based MacroPoint runs a connected network of over 2 million trucking assets and drivers. MacroPoint connects to trucks through integrations to on-board electronic logging devices (ELDs), transportation management systems, GPS-enabled smart phone applications and location-based mobile phone triangulation.

MacroPoint uses this data to help transportation brokers, logistics service providers and shippers track the locations of deliveries in trucks.

MacroPoint can also use this content to provide transportation brokers and shippers with predictive freight capacity to help identify early opportunities for additional freight moves.
