AT&T Inc. announced a new three-year contract to provide integrated solutions for Towne Air Freight, a national air and less-than-truckload freight carrier. Established in South Bend in 1963, Towne Air Freight has expanded from a one-van, one-man operation to its present national operations under Towne Holdings Co.
Under the agreement, AT&T provides bundled voice, data and wireless network solutions to the company’s 26 nationwide locations and allows them to operate as though they are under a single roof.
Towne Air Freight will streamline and integrate its voice and data services by using AT&T Business Network (ABN) service, which consolidates voice and data communications into a single contract with a single bill, including discounts across all services.
Using AT&T’s Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) platform, Towne Air Freight will have seamless, high speed connectivity among its locations across the network. In addition, Towne Air Freight’s AT&T-managed Private Network Transport (PNT) service provides a flexible backbone to accommodate growth in its communications needs.
Matrix Integration, an AT&T Alliance solution provider, largely contributed to the successful installation of Towne Air Freight’s advanced network services. With more than 30 years of experience, Matrix Integration collaborated with AT&T to provide Towne Air Freight a seamless integration of networking solutions that enhances the company’s data and communications processes.
“As our customers’ needs evolve and increase, Towne Air Freight is committed to consistently providing quality carrier solutions that are reliable, timely and innovative,” said Gary Bateman, vice president-Technology, Towne Air Freight. “AT&T’s integrated services and network offer our employees the flexibility and confidence to effectively communicate and maintain a seamless shipping process that delivers value to our clients.”
