InMotion Global, Inc. announced today that AscendTMS, the world's most popular and number one rated transportation management software (TMS), has integrated the powerful Smart Capacity solution from Trucker Tools to allow brokers, 3PL's and shippers to see live and available truck capacity in real time several days before the trucks are empty.

Trucker Tools is also providing any of their broker, 3PL or shipper customers with AscendTMS at no cost so they can manage their entire business operations while being seamlessly connected to Trucker Tools and their Smart Capacity solution.

The powerful combination of Trucker Tools and AscendTMS provides carriers, brokers, 3PLs, and shippers with the most seamless way to both manage their entire logistics operations and to keep trucks full and loads moving.

Tim Higham, president and CEO of InMotion Global, said; "I've been in this industry for a long time, and it's rare that a truly fantastic solution like Smart Capacity comes along. Most new technology providers just don't understand how this industry works - but Trucker Tools does. Their Smart Capacity solution is a rare gem that really works - and now it's seamlessly integrated to the world's most widely used TMS solution, AscendTMS."

Prasad Gollapalli, founder and chief executive of Trucker Tools, noted that by partnering with AscendTMS and embedding Trucker Tools Smart Capacity functionality in its platform, AscendTMS users gain powerful, easy-to-use predictive freight-matching, load tracking and carrier relationship management tools without any additional integration or the need to download another software package.

"Users stay in the same functional screen on AscendTMS without having to toggle to another application," he noted. "We are bringing Smart Capacity's tools to them, in a platform on which they already work, not asking them to download yet another app."

Gollapalli added that brokers on Ascend TMS also gain access to a critical mass of capacity through Trucker Tools' growing community of 600,000 owner-operators and "micro-carriers" (fleets with 10 trucks or less) who since 2013 have downloaded and utilize the Trucker Tools Mobile Driver App on their smart-phone or tablet.

Over 125,000 small carriers are active users of the mobile app and the Smart Capacity portal, Gollapalli noted. "The ability to quickly and accurately access the capacity of these small-fleet independent truckers, combined with the robust features of Trucker Tools for capacity planning, load-matching and automated tracking, significantly increases the value, functional utility and performance of this leading TMS platform - at no extra cost to users," he said.

Concluded Gollapalli, "We're excited to launch this strategic integration with AscendTMS and look forward to supporting more and more small carriers and brokers with a superior, cost-effective technology solution that enables them to build sustainable capacity networks, streamline their operations and drive revenue growth."
