Fujitsu launches private cloud for trucking companies

Updated nationwide system supports small- and medium-sized transport companies in Japan

By CBR Staff Writer

Fujitsu in collaboration with the Japan Local Network System federation of trucking company unions, has updated the truck and freight booking system in Japan and implemented it as a private cloud computing service.

The Local Network System is used by small- and medium-sized trucking companies throughout Japan to match cargo information to space available on their trucks, facilitating the booking of truck requests and cargo requests to help them to run their businesses more efficiently.

The Japan Local Network System federation of trucking company unions uses it to disclose logistics information on carrier vehicles, freight, and warehouses, while carriers use it to exchange information directly, as well as to execute contracts and settle accounts in real time.

Fujitsu said that the new updated system features the ability to calculate CO2 emissions for each trip and uses Internet-based map data to show origins, destinations, and trip data.
