CLEVELAND (March 23, 2016)- MacroPoint, creators of patented freight tracking software designed to give third party visibility into load status by tracking the location of a driver’s mobile phone, including flip phones, or existing in-cab ELD/GPS devices, today announced it will be the Official Logistics Track & Trace Provider of the No. 47 JTG Daugherty Racing NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team, tracking the trucks that haul for the Harrisburg, N.C. racing organization all over the country weekly until the season-finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway in November.
“MacroPoint tracks freight for shippers who take supply chain visibility very seriously, but NASCAR fans take it to a whole other level when they want to know where their favorite NASCAR team is”, said Bennett Adelson, CEO of MacroPoint. “Let’s just say that they are very passionate about knowing when the car will arrive to the track, and will be waiting for it very enthusiastically. We’re incredibly proud to be selected as the technology JTG Daugherty Racing will use to track their most precious cargo, the No. 47 car that competes in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series!”
