Technology

Continually updated, state-of-the-art technology ensures the accuracy and visibility of your shipment.

Over the years AV has defined and refined event management technology thus allowing visibility of your shipment through the supply chain cycle. AV Logistics knows it’s important to have access to the status of your shipment at all times, which is why AV Logistics utilizes the latest technology for convenient, real-time data access. AV Logistics’ advantages include our custom systems that can be integrated with large companies’ mainframe systems which are usually inflexible and expensive to modify. AV Logistics’ continuous investment in technology keeps us at the cutting-edge.

Listed below are several of our core technologies and capabilities:

VMware Private Cloud Services: Our private cloud allows us to use our datacenter’s efficiency and agility while enhancing security and control. It also allows us to consolidate datacenters and deploy workloads on shared infrastructure with built-in security and role-based access control. We are able to deliver cloud infrastructure on-demand so end users can consume virtual resources with maximum agility and efficiency.

Colo5 Disaster Recovery Center: Provides disaster recovery services that enable AV Logistics to safeguard our business and protect our data in a facility that can ensure minimal downtime. Colo5’s core infrastructure is rated to withstand hurricane category 5 forces, and features state-of-the-art security, power, cooling, and fiber network systems to ensure maximum reliability and peace of mind. Reserving disaster recovery space within Colo5 allows for uninterrupted power usage and connection to its robust network infrastructure.

D2 Link with Geofencing: Using GPS-enabled phones, D2Link transfers load and location data between drivers and dispatchers. Dispatchers can view frequent GPS location readings for trucks (as frequently as every 10 minutes or less), and arrival and departure confirmations are automatically processed. Drivers receive load assignments and trip schedules with all the details they need and stay tuned in for changes or updates throughout their trip.

Xata/Turnpike: Xata Turnpike provides a complete electronic onboard recorder solution to help AV Logistics comply with hours-of-service regulations issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and the Department of Transportation. Xata Turnpike automatically records driver and vehicle information, and then connects via Bluetooth technology to our compatible devices, which sends data to AV Logistics for reporting, analysis, and asset tracking.

EBE: Paperless, workflow & process management solutions. EBE’s CSA Dashboard and Safety and Compliance workflows monitor the driver’s roadside inspection and violation activity, driver qualification files, training, DVIR compliance and even driver performance data such as mpg, idle time and hard braking. Providing alerts to out of standard behavior and automatically assigning corrective activities and tracking those activities through completion allows managers to spend more time with drivers and less time looking for at risk behavior. And, all of this information is rolled up into one single driver scorecard eliminating the need for managers to retrieve information from various websites, databases or spreadsheets to get a 360o view of the driver.

eStat Portal: TMW eStat is our self-service, online portal, providing AV Logistics’ customers with visibility to their orders and tracking information – in real time, 24 hours day. Because eStat is securely linked with our TMW System data and business applications, customers get accurate, up-to-the-minute information, about only their orders. Plus, they’re able to send RFQs or tender shipments to you without ever lifting the phone.

EDI (Electronic Data Interchangers): Our EDI capabilities allow us to send messages which include but are not limited to:

  • 204: Motor Carrier Load Tender
  • 990: Response to a Load Tender
  • 997: Functional Acknowledgment
  • 214: Transportation Carrier Ship. Status Message
