KTI, a TransCore customer since 2001, utilizes several of the products and services from the 3sixty platform:

-- The Logistics Suite for Brokers acts as the robust control center

-- Freight Match, powered by the DAT network, helps keep KTI's 15,000 contracted carriers loaded

-- CarrierWatch monitoring helps ensure all carriers are fully vetted and legal prior to contracting

-- The Imaging Module allows for electronic POD, expediting payment for services

"Since working with TransCore, we've grown from 5 to 30 users. This meant we had to have a system that is flexible enough to grow with us, but robust enough to give us a business advantage," added Weiner. "We've seen our productivity increase by 35 percent since we upgraded to the new system."

According to Steve Blair, general manager, Operations Management for TransCore, "KTI is a perfect example of a customer that is maximizing all that our platform has to offer. The suite saves brokers time - and in this business time is money."
