"Alpega's unique ability to provide SaaS solutions for companies with transportation processes ranging from low- to high-end complexity, offers the flexibility to start with a simple, tactical Transportation Management System (TMS) and expand to a highly strategic system as required," McArthur stated.
Alpega, meanwhile, indicated the move came at a time technology is making it easier to connect and route road, rail, sea and air transportation with the efficiency that previously wasn't possible. Additionally, Alpega said that the Transportation Management System (TMS) and freight exchange markets in which it operates are going through a step-change in digital transformation.
"As the market matures, we are seeing customers reach the limits of what they can achieve with their initial first-generation TMS tools," commented Alpega Group CEO Todd DeLaughter via the Business Wire press release. "Alpega not only scales from simple to complex transportation networks but also leverages the data from our freight exchange marketplace to offer unique insights to both shippers and carriers about optimal routes and processes."

The company highlights that their smart routing functionality empowers businesses to reduce their carbon footprints on return and outbound routes by enabling full truckloads.
