ADSI announces a partnership to integrate their Ship-IT™ multi-carrier shipping software platform with project44, a progressive Chicago-based technology providing web-service API connectivity to the freight industry. The collaboration will deliver strategic and tactical value to shippers, seamlessly enabling them to update and adapt their carrier portfolios to ensure accurate, real-time freight cost calculation and reduce backcharges from carriers.
After investing years of development effort to create the technological infrastructure, project44 has standardized hundreds of API connections to LTL carriers. This new integration makes it possible for shippers to instantly exchange real-time freight rates and transit times with their preferred LTL carriers, enabling a more flexible supply chain.
"We've streamlined the carrier rate maintenance process with dynamic rate updating technology between our Ship-IT shipping software and project44's web-based library of carriers," said Bob Fischer, CEO and President of ADSI. "This allows our shipping customers to much more easily add new carriers or update existing carriers' rates in a fraction of the time." project44's instant connectivity also automates dispatch and tracking requests and delivers images of bills of lading and proof of delivery in real time.
Coupled with ADSI's award-winning technology, this partnership delivers automated LTL shipping execution and tracking, dimensioning, labeling, barcode & RFID scanning, Internet of Moving Things (IoMT) and other kinds of advanced capabilities to users of the project44 platform, allowing project44 clients to streamline their warehouse operations and optimize LTL shipping costs.
"In today's integrated world, enterprise shippers are rejecting systems that operate in silos," said Wally Ibrahim, CTO and Co-Founder of project44. "The best part about working with an established, ground-breaking provider like ADSI is that the collaboration possibilities are endless. This Ship-IT integration is just the first step in a long-term partnership that will allow our mutual customers to further streamline their operations and achieve greater control over operating costs through a single, easy-to-use platform."
