Transite Technology Announces Initiative to Consolidate Carrier Transit Information on Single Site.

Portal to Be Accessed by Both Carriers and Shippers for Real-Time Data and Information

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Transite Technology, a leading provider of transportation management solutions, software and services, has released an industry wide initiative enabling shippers and logistics companies to obtain more accurate and timely LTL carrier service information while reducing the cost of obtaining this information for the entire industry. This information includes transit time standards, detailed terminal information, coverage, and more. This differs significantly from existing services in the market by providing a highly collaborative environment for shipper, logistics provider, carrier, and transportation software vendors.

Within the Transite model, all carriers utilize a single location to keep the marketplace updated with all of their current business. In turn, shippers can use a single website or use Transite's easy integration tools library to obtain this information via web services. This allows ERP, TMS, WMS, and other systems to accurately obtain real time data for real time decision making.

"Transite already has the technology, relationships, and much of the data to solve this complicated problem," said Geoff Comrie, CEO of Transite. "With our web portal, neither the carrier nor shipper has to buy technology. The portal will be easily accessed by the both carrier and shipper so both can easily utilize via web services and browser to input and extract data, respectively."

Every carrier contacted has agreed to participate along with other companies including BirdDog Solutions, eShipping Logistics, and others.

"Companies are becoming very savvy at using its supply chain as a competitive advantage," said John DuBiel, CEO of Supply Chain Edge. "In this sense, it's crucial to obtain accurate information in a manner that is seamless and in real time."
