Trucker Tools, a provider of shipment visibility, carrier capacity management and predictive freight-matching applications, announced that Tailwind Transportation Software has integrated its Smart Capacity platform into the Pro and Enterprise TMS subscription tiers of Tailwind.

Tailwind Transportation Software deploys a web-based TMS platform available by monthly subscription for freight brokers and small fleets.

“We focus on the smart and strategic logistics and transportation providers who are rapidly growing and want to accelerate their business through enabling technology,” said Murray Pratt, president and CEO of Tailwind.

Tailwind selected Trucker Tools after evaluating several potential technology providers. “We are at an intersection of connecting technologies,” he said. “When we look for innovative technology, we want long-term partners that bring unique solutions to the market that extend the capabilities of our platform, and who are agile and can grow and develop with us.”

The Smart Capacity platform from Trucker Tools provides truckload capacity data with predictive freight-matching processes and workflows. The integration helps Tailwind customers eliminate poor data and reduce wasted effort looking for capacity, the companies said.

Prasad Gollapalli, founder and CEO of Trucker Tools, noted that Tailwind is the latest of several major TMS providers to integrate with Smart Capacity. “We are providing workflow functionality, capacity visibility and management tools that help strengthen their product set and extend their capabilities,” he noted.
