SCI Logistics' advanced application of transportation management software from TMW delivers efficiencies, greater visibility and process automation
TORONTO, Dec. 11, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - SCI Logistics was presented with one of six TMW Technology Awards for its exemplary use of TruckMate® software at the annual TMW TransForum User Conference in Nashville, Tennessee this September.
TMW is a leading provider of transportation technology, serving over 2,000 customers in trucking and transportation services as well as related industries across North America. Each year, TMW presents six Technology Awards to companies that have demonstrated advanced and innovative applications of key TMW software, which has resulted in significant benefits to their business. TruckMate transportation management software from TMW is used by hundreds of companies across Canada, the U.S. and abroad.
"TMW is a technology provider of choice for transportation companies who are particularly progressive, ambitious and strategically focused, see technology as a competitive advantage and are eager to stretch their partner providers to reach new levels of achievement. Those are the types of companies usually in contention for our TMW Technology Awards," said Janice O'Malley, VP and General Manager for the TruckMate group of TMW, and one of the award presenters. "SCI Logistics was a clear winner for our selection team this year," she added.
SCI Logistics was selected as a Technology Award winner by TMW based on the company's extensive use and proficiency deploying TruckMate solutions across its entire business including management of the SCI Logistics' transportation network, integration of core carriers, order entry, billing, dispatch and maintenance activities. In addition, SCI's advanced use of TruckMate as a TMS platform means that clients can quickly plug-in to reap the benefits of visibility and process automation. SCI clients can also increase their process efficiencies through binding the system's reporting capabilities with mobility solutions, such as document scanning and GPS tracking. Both SCI's transportation centers and agents use the same TruckMate transportation management system, guaranteeing consistent client experience from coast to coast across Canada.
"Our clients are better able to coordinate deliveries, simplify the customer on-boarding process and eliminate unnecessary technician time on-site," said Sean Watson, Vice President of Transportation at SCI Logistics. "SCI's strategic use of TruckMate ultimately lowers transaction costs with a platform that helps clients quickly benefit from process automation efficiencies and greater shipment visibility."
