TruckPark Team for Reservations|
January 31, 2020
AscendTMS will allow the dispatcher to see forward looking parking spaces ahead for each driver based on their current HoS available and their current average speed - and then reserve parking spots with a single click.
InMotion Global's AscendTMS and TruckPark have signed an agreement to allow truck parking reservations to be made directly inside the AscendTMS software platform by fleet dispatchers. This partnership provides the logistics industry with fast, easy access to thousands of secure parking spaces via the AscendTMS software for carrier fleets of all sizes.
Bert Goo, EVP of Partnerships & Channel Marketing at AscendTMS, said; “The key to making driverparking reservations is saving the spaces well before someone else does. This agreement with TruckPark is a first for any TMS provider in that it allows the dispatcher to make the reservation for thedriver while he or she is driving, hours before it even crosses the drivers mind. This partnership allows the dispatcher to help their drivers out by seeing all the forward-looking parking spaces available based on the drivers current location, their HoS available, and their average speed. AscendTMS will then provide several parking suggestions on the road ahead for the dispatcher, and allow the reservation to be made in AscendTMS with a single click. The driver is then notified automatically of their reservation by SMS text message or by ELD text message. No other TMS platform has ever done this before.”
