Logistics software provider TMW Systems Inc. said Monday it has integrated its transportation management system (TMS) platform with freight matching services from 123Loadboard.
Cleveland-based TMW has linked its TMW.Suite and TruckMate transportation management products with the load board provider in order to help truckers, brokers, and shippers move their freight more efficiently. Users who hold accounts with both companies can now post loads or trucks to Montreal-based 123Loadboard's online marketplace via TMW's Freight Board Interface, TMW said.
Through the integration, TMW.Suite and TruckMate users have the ability to add, update, cancel, and remove loads from within their respective TMS programs, the firms said. Posted loads auto-populate in 123Loadboard, giving carriers and others using the platform access to a greater quantity of loads in real time. In addition, drivers can post trucks available for use, enabling brokers and asset-based carriers to take advantage of 123Loadboard's platform.
"This TMW integration will enable 123Loadboard members to post their loads and trucks to the load board quickly and easily using automation to simplify the process," Loarn Metzen, vice president of 123Loadboard, said in a release. "Plus, having immediate access to up-to-date load and truck data will ensure that 123Loadboard's platform remains efficient while helping brokers and fleet owners move greater freight volumes."
