Do you have staff assigned to manually looking up data from partner portals and third party information web sites, and re-keying the data into your transportation management system or other internal systems?

If so, then you know these manual activities are very time consuming and costly for transportation and 3PL providers.

Join Transplace for this Webcast, to learn how they were able to automate manual processes by tightly integrating their transportation management system (TMS) with the portals of carriers, and 3rd party vendors in a matter of a few weeks.

Attend this Webcast to learn:

  • About the latest Web data integration technology used to integrate transportation management systems with external portals of carriers, and 3rd party information provider Web sites.
  • How automating manual routine tasks like gathering freight bill payment information or securing proofs of delivery (PODs) from a partner site, allows businesses to redeploy staff toward higher-value, strategic work.
  • Why the future is bright when it comes to automating almost any manual task that requires integrating web application data with internal systems.

Speakers: Barry Gasaway, Transplace; Moderator: Bob Trebilcock, SCMR

XPO Logistics announced second quarter earnings and the acquisition of two companies, New Breed Logistics, a non asset-based 3PL focusing in contract logistics services, for roughly $615 million, and Atlantic Central Logistics, a 3PL provider of last-mile logistics services, for roughly $36.5 million.

The report, entitled “Outlook for the Domestic Transport and Logistics Market in 2H14 and Beyond,” takes the view that strong freight levels in the second quarter have left trucking companies in a good position: one in which they need to come up with new plans to handle rising demand. But even with that positive momentum afloat, the report observes that there are some familiar challenges intact, such as a lack of qualified drivers and the regulatory drag from the new hours-of-service rules that took effect in July 2013.

Flags of Convenience are a fact of life in the commercial maritime trade, but several European political action groups are worried that they will pose a threat to the Continent’s air cargo industry.

For May, which is the most recent month for which data is available, the SCI is -7.5, following April’s -7.5. FTR said this reading represents a still-tight capacity environment, as utilization rates hover between 98 percent and 99 percent.
