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.”

While core metrics were down from a very impressive July, the August edition of the Non-Manufacturing Report on Business from the Institute of Supply Management (ISM) was still very strong.

The Clean Cargo Working Group (CCWG) has released a report indicating that in 2014 average CO2 emissions in the global container shipping trades declined 8.4 percent from the year before.

UPS Freight, the less-than-truckload (LTL) subsidiary of UPS, recently announced it has rolled out a new service center facility in Franklin Park, Illinois. This is the company’s fifth Chicago-area service center along with other ones in Aurora, Chicago, Palantine, and South Holland.

Putting the renewed strength in the truckload market into a very positive perspective is a report issued by Avondale Partners analyst Donald Broughton, which was released yesterday. Entitled, “Q2’15 Trucking Capacity; Goldilocks Era Continues,” Broughton explained that in the second quarter only 70 truckload fleets failed, or exited the business. That number may seem high to some, but it is not, especially when you consider that the second quarter of 2014 saw more than five times as many truckload carriers, 375 to be exact, exit the business.
