Kewill has expanded its supply chain management services with the introduction of Kewill Flagship Express, a non-premise-based technology designed for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMEs).

According to spokesmen, this is a “cost-effective U.S. origin shipping solution” that does not sacrifice performance or flexibility.

This new offering comes on the heels of the announcement of Kewill Netship, a cloud-based, fully integrated end-to-end, desktop shipping service.  With the announcement of Flagship Express, Kewill is now able to provide mid-market companies with functionality previously only available in enterprise-level systems at a price point that meets “budgetary needs.” 

Details of Kewill Express include:

• No hardware cost, lower total cost of ownership
• Multiple integration options to ensure data integrity
• Supports Low to Medium shipping volumes
• No or extremely limited IT support requirement
• Scalability – low overhead to migrate if volumes increase
• Robust add-on modules that add value to a variety of work flows

“Kewill Flagship Express provides us the ability to offer customers a shipping solution with this level of capability to fill a void that currently exists with other solutions targeted to the small to mid-market organizations,” said Alan Gold, vice president of marketing and business development for Kewill Inc. “Typically these companies need to choose between carrier-supplied, limited functionality shipping tools, expensive on-premise software, or complicated and costly implementation cycles.  With Kewill Flagship Express we’re changing all that.”

UPS today announced diluted earnings per share of $1.32 for the third quarter 2014, a 13.8% improvement over the prior year period. Operating profit increased 8.3%, resulting from balanced growth across all three segments.

The Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) reported this week that U.S. trade with its North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) partners Canada and Mexico increased 4.4 percent from August 2013 to August 2014 at $100.6 billion.

As expected, global trade dipped from August to September but still saw annual gains, according to data issued this week by Panjiva, an online search engine with detailed information on global suppliers and manufacturers.

Transportation and logistics merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in the third quarter saw annual gains, which were driven by smaller deals in the trucking logistics, shipping, and passenger air sectors, according to data issued in the Intersections report by PwC this week.

With the holidays rapidly approaching, it appears retailers are not quite done getting inventory set up and on the shelves in time for what is expected to be a fairly active shopping season. That much was evident based on recent data for September volumes issued by the Port of Los Angeles (POLA) and the Port of Long Beach (POLB).
