SaaS Transportation, a software and consulting services company, and Logistical Labs, a cloud-based supply chain software provider, announced a partnership to integrate their complementary cloud-based supply chain software applications.
This alliance will benefit mutual customers, the companies say, by allowing them to access their less-than-truckload rates alongside all truckload and intermodal rates in a single platform.
“Our partnership with SaaS allows customers to take their workflows to the next level,” said Chris Ricciardi, chief product officer of Logistical Labs. “Rather than having to use disparate TMS platforms, everything is in one place—allowing for faster, easier mode optimization.”
“Experience has taught me that a ‘one-size fits all’ approach rarely works when is come to TMS requirements in the 3PL industry,” said SaaS president and CEO, Ken Pehanick. “I believe the partnership between SaaS and Logistical Labs will provide a better solution to our customer base.”
Logistical Labs’ LoadDex aggregates pricing information for any given route for decisions about pricing and mode selection. LoadDex collects relevant historical, social, and external pricing data through interactive tools to quickly compare and accurately track rates. LoadDex users can analyze multiple years of data — thousands of data points from disparate systems — in less than two seconds to find the most efficient and cost-effective option.
SaaS, based in Destin, Fla., provides a cloud–based transportation management system (TMS) used by 3PLs, shippers, and freight payment providers. The core component of the SaaS TMS is a rate engine with an emphasis on LTL freight.
