The Woodlands, Texas – September 26, 2018. Bourque Logistics, the leader in logistics software and services for industrial shippers announced the upcoming release of SHIPPER BI, a logistics business intelligence tool to provide clients visual evaluation of performance measures. The release is scheduled for fall, 2018.
SHIPPER BI provides intuitive dashboards which aggregate a wealth of fleet, shipment, freight cost, and equipment maintenance data. This allows logistics managers to immediately identify and generate reports on efficiencies and trends within their logistics operations. SHIPPER BI is a multi-mode tool addressing rail, truck, and intermodal operations, both domestic and international, unlocking the potential for more informed, business-driven decisions.
“Through its intuitive dashboards, SHIPPER BI allows our clients to gain total visibility of logistics operations on both a tactical and strategic level,” said Steve Bourque, president of Bourque Logistics. “Its visualization capabilities allow our clients to reveal key trends based upon their multi-mode transactions captured within RAILTRAC®, YardMaster®, YardMaster® Truck, RateServer®, RAILAcct®, and TCMS Navigator.”
