The LogisticsFramework™ (TLF)
Streamline the Job-to-Invoice Process & Improve Your Bottom Line
Qv21 Technologies provides a sophisticated, multi-faceted, cloud-based transportation logistics platform, The LogisticsFramework™ (TLF). The low-cost, SaaS solution is used by trucking companies as well as oil and gas E&P companies, trading companies, waste hauling and other industries.
TLF is a robust, cloud-based, end-to-end logistics system for dispatch, tracking, e-ticketing, HOS logging and reporting all in one system. The Qv21 industry-leading SaaS product suite provides dispatch tools, a customizable dashboard to schedule jobs, track orders, move jobs between drivers, even over multiple stops.
Qv21 has developed an FMCSA-certified Electronic Logging Device (ELD) that will have your drivers compliant with the D.O.T. ELD requirements for no capital expense, just a low monthly subscription. The ELD is installed in the truck to record location and HOS data, and reports through the driver's phone or tablet through the ELD Compliance module. Data reports in real time for use by dispatch and management through the TLF platform.
Companies using Qv21’s system expand their operations with cost savings from improved operating efficiencies, faster order-to-revenue receipts and AR turnaround. Our customers report that they see dramatic improvement in dispatcher efficiency, with 3 to 6 times as many drivers managed by a single dispatcher than with other transportation management systems.
TLF consists of these configurable modules designed to meet your operation's needs.

The LogisticsNetwork (TLN)
Dispatch and e-ticket data captured from TLF is aggregated so that producers, purchasers, terminal operators, marketers, refiners, carriers and pipeline operators can view and access their shipments, deliveries, orders, inventory and contracts in real time. Automatic feeds from TLN can be configured and integrated for ERP, accounting, inventory and other internal systems.
TLN is the result of a broader Qv21 strategic product vision that enables the flow of actionable information easily and seamlessly across the supply chain functional spectrum, (i.e., from contracts to pricing to order management to shipping and delivery, to AR and AP, to inventory reconciliation). TLN also collects, connects and integrates data at every step with data from/to multiple systems, irrespective of whether these systems are Qv21-based or not.
3PL by Qv21
With increased production across oil basins, Crude take-away challenges are greater than ever, for Producers and Logistics Providers alike. Often times production output can surpass the number of available trucks within your fleet, and to that point we understand that it makes strategic sense to outsource loads to your third-party partners to get the job done.
With 3PL by Qv21, Producers and their tiered carriers can connect the dots, and do business up and down their exclusive 3PL channels entirely electronically, an industry first. Producers can designate take-away volume for their Tier 1 carriers, and in turn, Tier 1 carriers can establish multiple 3PL channels with their third-party partners. Once a 3PL channel has been configured and loads have been outsourced, fleets utilizing The LogisticsFramework® (TLF) can pick up, eTicket, complete, and report back up to help you reach your contracted commitments.
What you get with Qv21:
Real-time visibility between dispatch, back office & third party drivers.
Automatic integration of completed ticket data.
Real-time visibility up and down 3PL channels.
Producer, Carrier, & 3PL Partner confidentiality within 3PL channels.
Dispatch 3PL loads to third party partners.
Qv21 Business Intelligence Dashboard
The Qv21 BI dashboard is an easy to read, one-page summary of the metrics and KPIs that govern your business. It is an overview of your crude oil supply chain at a glance. There are many advantages that result in the utilization of this tool. Some of the most important benefits are:
Customizable – Dashboards can be customized by users expectations. Each decision level dashboard can be customized to present the most valuable and useful set of information. This allows each user to see the level of detail that they need in order to get their job done and meet their goals.
All-in-One - In the past users would spend a large amount of time reviewing and analyzing different reports to reach a final conclusion. This tool allows users to see, at a glance, an overall situation report of the desired information.
Drill into Detail - Having all-in-one does not mean the absence of details. Dashboards are developed with the ability to get as deep into the information as required by simply selecting the desired variable or object.
Intuitive Data Presentation - There is no need for complicated and exhaustive training. Dashboards are designed to be intuitive to any user. The graphic design allows an easy and smooth navigation throughout the information.
Mobile Device Accessible – The Qv21 BI dashboard is mobile-friendly, for both iOS and Android. The idea is to reach anyone, anywhere in a timely manner with the most accurate information.
