Tampa, Florida - August 28th, 2019
InMotion Global, Inc. announced today that AscendTMS, the world's number one rated transportation management software (TMS), has partnered with Kleinschmidt, the premier provider of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) services to the transportation and logistics industry, to provide fast, easy, and inexpensive Digital Freight Management (DFM) capabilities to any logistics industry participant.
The combination of Kleinschmidt's powerful EDI integration and B2B messaging platform with AscendTMS provides shippers, brokers, 3PLs, and carriers with a massive on-demand DFM platform that can be accessed by any logistics industry professional in a matter of seconds by using AscendTMS.
Tim Higham, president and CEO of AscendTMS, said, "Prior to this partnership between AscendTMS and Kleinschmidt, DFM was the elusive holy grail that nobody could get their arms around - until now. Kleinschmidt provides and manages one of the world's largest networks of logistics EDI connectivity between trading partners. Since 1893 they've built a reputation second to none and amassed EDI connectivity for over 20,000 leading shippers, brokers, 3PL's, and asset-based carriers. Our partnership with Kleinschmidt means that AscendTMS customers will be instantly connected to this immense EDI supply chain network in order to open up DFM opportunities for electronic load tendering, real time load updating, and final invoice presentment - and it's accessible to everybody."
Kleinschmidt CEO, Dan Heinen, stated "Our partnership with AscendTMS will be beneficial to companies across the industry. The goal is to provide industry professionals with easy access to the advantages of digital freight management and all the efficiencies it brings to each party. Shippers, brokers, and 3PL's will be able to bring their entire supply chains into digital compliance almost overnight, and brokers and carriers will be able to electronically access tens of thousands of DFM-ready shippers and brokers through AscendTMS in order to access more freight. Kleinschmidt believes that the future of freight management will soon be totally digital, and we are leading the industry forward by partnering with companies like AscendTMS to get the market there in short order."
Higham continued, "Kleinschmidt and AscendTMS are experienced, stable, and profitable logistics industry leaders that already process millions of daily freight transactions. We won't rest until every single transaction is digital for every shipper, broker, 3PL, carrier or logistics service provider so we can all move the industry forward to fully digital transactions. Moreover, we openly invite all industry service providers to participate with us on this journey so we can navigate away from today's messy paper centric world to one that's fully digital."
