LeanLogistics, a provider of global transportation management system (TMS) applications, has introduced a cost-effective delivery mechanism for TMS into mid-market-size companies such as Request Foods. By bundling implementation, training, and support, LeanLogistics delivers TMS capabilities at a fraction of current market costs.
“Request Foods utilizes the core capabilities of LeanLogistics’ transportation system to increase efficiencies, automate processes, and gain visibility into loads—as well as reduce transportation costs,” said Shane Moerdyk of Request Foods, a frozen foods company. “A company of our size needs a transportation solution that can flex based on our business needs and deliver within a reasonable budget.”
LeanLogistics’ deployment approach is based on a software-as-a-service (SaaS) computing model, which requires less IT resources than traditional TMS models and focuses the project efforts on the business need—not creation of IT infrastructure. This allows companies of all sizes to leverage SaaS transportation technologies to increase visibility for stakeholders (carriers, vendors, and customers) while producing both cost-to-serve and service-level benefits.
“Although one of the fastest-growing supply chain markets, mid-market companies are still heavily underserved with TMS solutions,” said Jon Kuerschner, senior vice-president–sales and marketing, LeanLogistics. “LeanLogistics has proven that it can deliver focused TMS solutions for these mid-market customers on-time, on-budget and on-target.”
