Freight Hound is revolutionizing the way trucking companies search for missing freight and organize OS&D. Below are just some of the highlights and success stories we’ve accumulated. 
4/18/2008 Photo Editing Capabilities Added
Picture Power just got more powerful. Freight Hound is adding a photo editor to the Add Overage screen which will allow users to rotate, crop, enlarge and enhance pictures on the fly. We have also increased the size of pictures to 700x700 pixels, making it easier to identify freight.
4/8/2008 Claims Awareness Training Posters Now Available
Claims Awareness Training and Posters are the newest loss prevention tool to be offered from the folks at Freight Hound. For less than $5.50 per location per month, carriers can be confident that every employee receives the same quality loss prevention message. Once a year every terminal will receive a package containing 12 full-size, color posters along with a binder full of training guides and attendance sheets. Training topics include Forklift Safety, Blocking & Bracing, Dunnage, Recouping, Quality Loading, Manifesting, Security, Proper Stacking, Bill of Lading Review and more.

3/28/2008 Salvage Hound Integrated With Freight Hound
Freight Hound just gained an ally in the war against freight claims. Salvage Hound, our salvage liquidation subsidiary, has long been recognized as a technology leader in the freight salvage arena, but until now, Freight Hound users had to log into a separate system to see if freight they were looking for had been sent to salvage. But no more. Freight Hound subscribers who also utilize Salvage Hound can now search both systems with a click of a button on the revised search screen.
3/1/2008 Holland Matches $92,000 In Freight!
Congratulations to USF Holland users who successfully matched over $92,000-worth of freight in 2007. Holland OS&D Clerks are vigilant about adding photos to their listings, which is likely the reason they find a home for over 26% of their over-freight.

2/8/2008 Freight Hound Text Editor Rolled Out
Get Creative! This week Freight Hound added an HTML editor to several screens which will allow users to easily format text. Not too long ago we realized some tech savvy users had started adding html tags to their overage listings (things like bold, bullets, indentation, larger fonts, etc.) and we thought, “why not?” Now everyone (not just the geeks) can pretty up their listings, e-mails, and APB’s.

USF Reddaway renewed their subscription to Freight Hound this week citing the programs ease of use and management’s eagerness to please as reasons. We are proud to have Reddaway as customers.
