Princeton TMX adds new user

Port Townsend Paper Co. will use cloud-based transportation management system.

By DC Velocity Staff

Logistics software provider Princeton TMX has added a new client for its cloud-based transportation management system (TMS) platform, the company said Wednesday.

Fort Wayne, Ind.-based Princeton TMX offers a TMS designed for shippers in industries such as agribusiness, building products, chemicals, forest products, metals, packaging, and diverse manufacturing. The business is a subsidiary of transportation industry consulting firm Princeton Consultants Inc.

In October, the company acquired the shipping software unit of TransWorks, a subsidiary of rail operator Norfolk Southern Corp., and named its founder, Tim Minnich, as president of Princeton TMX.

The Princeton TMX offering includes a menu of modules including carrier management, rate management, rules-based tendering, trailer pool, exception management, and freight settlement.

Its newest user will be Port Townsend, Wash.-based Port Townsend Paper Co. (PTPC). PTPC produces pulp, paper, containerboard, and specialty products by blending virgin and recycled fibers at its mill. The company recycles one-third of all of the cardboard in the state of Washington.

"Our network is expanding because we have added new facilities—creating more transportation decisions every day," Ed Barnes, PTPC's procurement and transportation manager, said in a release. "We selected Princeton TMX because we were very impressed with its ability help us improve our processes by automating many aspects of our transportation management."
