European road service Freightex and data aggregator and unifier GateHouse Logistics have jointly announced that Freightex's service offering incorporating the unique ghTrack data tracking technology has been shortlisted in the innovation category of the Global Freight Awards 2016. The Awards are run in association with Lloyds List.
A panel of leading industry experts shortlisted Freightex's service offering for the prestigious award because it enables transport managers to become more efficient in their daily operations and have immediate visibility of assets in transit whatever GPS or telematics system is being used by sub-contractor hauliers.
With GateHouse Logistics' ghTrack integrated into its service product, Freightex aggregates and unifies all data relevant to customer assets in transit on one screen. As a Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) cloud platform, the technology enables all involved in the entire logistics supply chain to become more efficient and better informed. With ghTrack, the days when transport managers wasted time in powering-up more than 200 tracking systems for key asset data such as positioning and time of arrival have long gone.
"Clearly, Freightex is delighted that its unique service offering has been shortlisted for the Global Freight Innovation Award," says Freightex CEO, Tim Phillips. "By embracing ghTrack technology, Freightex offers customers a single tower view for real time location of loads whatever the logistics or GPS systems are being used by our sub-contractors."
"ghTrack is game-changing, Industry 4.0 compatible technology for the logistics world and is the powerhouse behind Freightex's shortlisting for the Global Freight Innovation Award," adds Jesper Bennike, GateHouse Logistics' CEO. "Freightex now offers customers a more intelligent means to track assets and deliveries in this data-driven logistics world where immediate asset transparency is key to operational efficiency."
Winners of the Global Freight Awards will be announced at a gala ceremony at the Lancaster Hotel, London on 3rd November 2016.
