Prophesy launches ShipperMail - A Loadbuilding Solution for the Mail Distribution Industry.
(Bloomfield, CT -- April 8, 2002)
Prophesy Transportation Solutions, Inc. proudly announces the release of ShipperMail, a comprehensive software solution
designed to facilitate the movement of bulk mail and small parcels from point of origin to all U.S. Postal Facilities and
including BMCs, SCFs, ASFs and DDUs. Built upon the company's ShipperPlusTM software, and developed with input from key mail
distribution companies, ShipperMail allows users to build loads quickly and flexibly, and route them as far into the postal
system as possible to maximize savings.
ShipperMail produces dramatic savings by allowing users to leverage real time opportunities for shipment consolidation into
efficient truckloads, utilizing dynamic pooling for LTL, and optimized carrier analysis and selection to maximize profitability.
ShipperMail outperforms manual load planning to such an extent that it will routinely save users between 10 and 20 percent on
total transportation costs without sacrificing service requirements. The product also builds all loads in minutes thus allowing
users to make last minute adjustments and changes at any time.
"Everyone is aware of the savings obtainable in shipping to SCFs and DDUs, and we all know that they will be even more
important after July. ShipperMail now allows companies to maximize their opportunities by quickly and efficiently building the
loads that meet schedules and minimize shipping costs", said Prophesy President Edward J. Forman. "The key element in the mail
and small parcel distribution industry is, of course, to get as far into the Post Office distribution network as possible.
ShipperMail, with its speed and flexibility, is the perfect solution to this problem."
ShipperMail also offers such features as advanced carrier selection, dynamic pool points, route building, and detailed cost
analysis, all of which are critical in tuning the distribution patterns and in bidding on new jobs.
