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.”

Intermodal units, at 278,767 containers and trailers were up 6.7 percent compared to the same week last year and marks the third best week for intermodal ever recorded based on AAR’s data.

LM Group News Editor Jeff Berman recently conducted a wide-ranging interview with Bobby Harris, President and CEO of non asset-based 3PL BlueGrace Logistics about various aspects of the freight transportation market.

It’s small, but senior brass at YRC Worldwide will take it. After nearly seven years of continuing losses in excess of $2.6 billion, the parent of the nation’s second-largest LTL carrier posted a narrow net profit in the third quarter ended Sept. 30.

As was the case for the second quarter, third quarter earnings results for publicly-traded less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers are again strong. Signs of solid earnings results from carriers that have posted earnings to date include tonnage increases, gains in weight per shipment and average daily shipments, higher yield, and revenue per hundredweight.

While the holiday season is known to bring good tidings and cheer to all, it may also come with another thing that is not so pleasant: higher rate freights. That was the thesis of a commentary written by Mark Montague, industry pricing analyst and chief market-watcher for DAT, a Portland, Ore.-based subsidiary of TransCore.
