Transplace, a provider of transportation management services and logistics technology solutions, announced a contract with NxStage Medical Inc. to manage shipments of dialysis products across North America.

NxStage says it chose the nonasset-based third-party logistics provider to move product shipments from Mexico as well as to its customers throughout the United States. Transplace says it will use its Transportation Management System (TMS) and business intelligence reporting and analytics capabilities to provide NxStage with realtime shipment visibility and detailed reporting capabilities.

“As we continue to grow, it’s important that NxStage has a strong partner that deeply understands all aspects of the supply chain,” says Judith Taylor, NxStage Medical vice president of planning and logistics. “Transplace will assist us through technology and experience to satisfy the needs of NxStage Medical and give us the visibility we need to help us meet our customers’ needs.”
