"We have been a loyal TransCore customer since 1994 and rely on their sophisticated technology to keep our operation running smoothly," said Robert Thomas, president of Suddath Transportation Services. "The upgrade to the 3sixty Logistics Suite from KeyPoint, has vastly improved our ability to obtain critical reports quickly, which in turn helps us improve customer service. TransCore is a trusted partner and this is an invaluable business tool. We definitely recommend the use of this system for any freight broker wishing to improve performance."

Established in 1983, Suddath Transportation services conducts more than 6,000 shipments and numerous special projects annually. The company used TransCore's KeyPoint offering before the migration to the new Windows-based Logistics Suite. The new system allowed for utilization of existing data, without time-consuming manual input. In addition, reports can be retrieved via email, as opposed to unreliable facsimiles, and easily converts data to Microsoft Excel for faster numbers tracking.

Suddath Transportation also implements TransCore's CarrierWatchSM to monitor carriers' authority, safety ratings, and insurance coverage, as well as Rate Index™ Pro for bulk and point-to-point truck lane rates. The company has access to more than 20 million square feet of warehouse space across the continental United States with an established agent network of approximately 800 pre-qualified carriers.

3sixty Logistics Suite is a transportation management system that addresses both the operational and accounting needs of transportation brokers and 3PLs. Features include order entry, dispatch, tracking, receivables, settlements, EDI, document management, load matching, carrier monitoring, and more.
