Pegasus TransTech announced that KLLM Logistics Services has implemented its Transflo Velocity and Transflo Mobile as electronic methods for carriers to submit invoices and load documents to speed processing and cash flow. The logistics group was launched in 2008 and does approximately $20 million in annual business hauling both dry and refrigerated freight.
With the Pegasus applications, brokers and 3PL’s receive documents and data electronically from the carriers to reduce manual processing and administrative costs to bill shippers faster. Carriers can also get paid faster.
KLLM Logistics Services is part of KLLM Transport Services based in Richland, Miss., a privately owned company. Among the top 100 for-hire motor carriers in the U.S., KLLM Transport operates a fleet of approximately 2,000 refrigerated units.
Kirk Blankenship, KLLM’s vice president of driver resources and logistics, sees Transflo Velocity as a benefit for KLLM Logistics Services carriers. “The quicker we get their invoices in, the quicker they get their money,” he said.
KLLM Logistics Services handles overflow from KLLM’s fleet as well as customer freight, Blankenship explained. “You can haul dry freight on a reefer or a dry van,” he said.
Transflo Velocity is free for carriers to use. KLLM provides a link on its website for carriers to download the software.
Carriers can scan or gather documents from the free software using their computer, or using their smartphone with Transflo Mobile. Documents are then electronically transmitted together for payment. Since invoices arrive electronically with the supporting documents, brokers like KLLM Logistics do not have to deal with multiple submissions for a single invoice.
