Asset-based Operations versus Brokerage
Truck Software Core Products
Keystone's core package and options cover all the needs of an asset-based
operation. While trucking companies were our original focus, over the years
it become obvious that brokering would become a more and more significant
part of the market. Many clients added brokerage business to provide better
service to their existing customers, or to allow them to run a smaller fleet
of their own.
Many of Keystone's current clients are strictly brokerage, agreeing that
Keystone has everything they are looking for.
Brokerage features include tracking individual drivers with a carrier,
insurance coverage details, preferred traffic lanes and carrier ratings. You
can search and filter your carrier base by traffic lanes, fleet size,
available equipment types and more.
Whether you run your own trucks, owner-operators, brokered carriers, or any
combination of these, we have you covered. There is no additional charge to
set up as many sets of books as you need.
Many of our clients are strictly asset-based, some straight brokerage, while
more and more run both type operations. Your Keystone software supports all
these combinations. Whether you run our operation as one company, separate
asset-based and brokerage companies, or even further taxable entities, your
software license covers all the bases. While many transportation packages
charge extra for additional companies, there is never an extra charge for
your Keystone software. As long as the separate databases are housed on the
same computer, they are covered under your license.
