InSite Logistics Implements Prophesy ShipperTPL
$1.8 billion international transportation and relocation services provider relies on software to handle extensive load building and pooling needs
(Bloomfield, Conn. – April 7, 2004) InSite Logistics, a division of UniGroup Worldwide UTS, recently purchased and implemented Prophesy ShipperTPL software to handle their growing logistics management needs.
Prophesy ShipperTPL is a comprehensive Transportation Management System specifically designed to fit third-party logistics and public warehousing companies. It combines least-cost shipping, load-building optimization, and carrier rating/selection with customer charge calculations and shipment profitability analysis.
Faced with growing volume and an increased need for flexibility, the team at InSite identified Prophesy as a natural choice for their company.
"This year has marked a period of dramatic growth for Insite," said Frank Fischer, Vice President of Logistics - Insite Logistics, Inc. "The implementation of our new ShipperTPL software had helped us to keep pace with our increased volume, while also allowing us to offer greater flexibility and savings for our clients."
"ShipperTPL was built from the ground up to handle companies just like InSite Logistics," said Prophesy President Edward J. Forman. "A company such as their's, with a heavy volume of shipments, can maximize the savings obtainable from sophisticated load-building, while also benefiting from the same affordability of the product that our smaller clients enjoy."
