Transite Technology Introduces My Freight Portal -- 3PL to Address Needs of Logistics Companies

RALEIGH, NC—June 22, 2009—Transite Technology, a leading provider of transportation management products and services, has released My Freight Portal-3PL enabling logistics companies to easily manage costs and profits for each transaction, while providing the 3PL’s customers with full transportation process functionality.

“We’ve been listening to our 3PL and broker customers,” said Geoff Comrie, CEO of Transite. “They wanted a 3PL-version of My Freight Portal that had specific features to improve their business processes, help build customer loyalty, and grow revenues and profits. And, it had to be cost-effective, simple and quick.”

To enhance organizational business processes, My Freight Portal-3PL enables logistics companies to easily integrate financial data related to their transportation—such as accounts payable and receivable—into their existing accounting packages such as QuickBooks. Reports such as customer activity levels, financials, and patterns of carrier selection provide data critical in strengthening business and customer relationship management.

My Freight Portal-3PL is a cornerstone in a logistics company’s customer attraction and retention efforts. The product easily integrates into their customer’s systems--ERP, eCommerce, web site—so they have the ability to manage and automate all aspects of the logistics lifecycle, from the most effective carrier selection and execution to freight audit. Their customers can rate shop for their least cost carrier including transit times (mode independent) and receive real-time tracking and shipment visibility and proactive notification upon delivery or change in status.

For profit management, “markup per transaction” is easily managed on each transaction. And, by using My Freight Portal-3PL, the logistics company can enable the shipper customer to manage their markup and profit margin as they deliver products to their end customer.
