When Software-As-A-Service TMS isn’t the right choice—the merits of purchase-installed solutions. Transite, which sells both forms of TMS, has issued a six-page whitepaper outlining and detailing the top five reasons why buyers should consider purchase and install solutions.

  • The Flexibility to Control Your Destiny

  • You Control Your Data

  • Tighter Integration Model

  • Cost

  • Better Customer Experience

First, let’s acknowledge that Transite offers its transportation management solutions as software-as-a-service as well as a purchased, on-premise customer installation. So, the company isn’t trying to push readers away from SaaS—in fact, more than half of Transite’s customers utilize the company’s SaaS solution.

In today’s transportation management systems (TMS) market, companies continue to invest in transportation management software to reduce costs, improve efficiency, and help run their overall freight management functions more effectively.

Companies can either purchase and install their TMS solution or obtain the functionality through the software as a service model—and, if they are a shipper, they can simply choose to outsource the whole thing to a third-party logistics provider.

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.
