Industry veterans to launch transportation management system
Progistix, a technology company based in Nevada, will launch Freightflow, the next generation of a cloud-based transportation management system, this October at the Produce Marketing Association Fresh Summit in Orlando, FL.
Designed specifically for the produce industry, Freightflow gives users complete visibility to their transportation planning, execution and settlement needs without costly technology investments.
Freightflow is the result of a shared vision between two logistics and produce veterans, Butch Peri and Bud Floyd. After spending decades in industries rooted in repetitive tasks and incompatible business systems, their goal was simple: to develop the next generation of an easy-to-use TMS solution that levels the playing field and allows small and medium businesses to compete in today’s complex transportation industry.
Turning vision into reality, Peri and Floyd assembled a team of software experts to develop an affordable, scalable system built using the newest cloud-based technology. Freightflow’s overarching platform integrates ERP business software with transportation tools to provide complete supply chain visibility from a single platform.
- Load Management— Centralized dashboard to prioritize, book, track and trace and post shipments to external load boards
- Customer Billing— Connectivity to key produce industry ERP business systems to manage billing, invoices and claims
- Document Storage— Convenient document storage allows users to quickly and easily retrieve and review documents associated with each load
- Analytics— Robust, easy-to-use reporting and analytics to make informed decisions
“Freightflow combines critical business components and key capabilities into a unified, easy-to-use platform that ensures reliability, security and scalability,” Kyle Jaster, chief technology officer at Freightflow, said in a press release. “We believe the tools and data we’re offering can help any business succeed — without any start up investments.”
According to Jaster, a recent partnership with Truckstop.com will provide customers direct access to carrier contact and policy information, certificates of insurance, limits and expiration dates, along with DOT safety ratings and authority data on more than 200,000 carriers.
“Combining the power of Freightflow with Truckstop.com will make it even easier to add qualified carriers to your preferred providers,” Jaster added.
Freightflow experts will be on hand at Fresh Summit to provide demos and discuss the benefits of this cloud-based solution to those interested in managing their complex, dynamic logistics and trade operation. For an appointment, contact Bud Floyd at 845/TMS-2345 or [email protected].
