Confederation Freezers Upgrades Logistics Software to Headwater’s Delfour SmartEnteprise 2

Long time user of Headwater's Delfour Third Party Logistics Software upgrades to SmartEnterprise 2 logistics management suite, adopts new hardware platform and latest version of Oracle software platform.

Brampton, Ontario (PRWEB) June 29, 2021 -- Confederation Freezers, a multi-facility third party logistics (3PL) provider serving Canadian and International customers from four food-grade controlled temperature and ambient temperature warehouses in Ontario, is upgrading its warehouse management software to Headwater Technology Solutions Inc.’s Delfour SmartEnterprise 2 third party logistics (3PL) suite, it was announced jointly today by Corporate Office Manager Lyn Miles and Headwater Senior Vice President Joe E. Couto. Confederation Freezers is a founding member of the Headwater-sponsored RFID Consortium and hosts one of the consortium’s two labs at one of its facilities.

Installation of new hardware is currently in process, with implementation and testing of SmartEnterprise 2 scheduled to follow immediately. The earlier version of the logistics management software has resided on an IBM RS6000 computer running IBM’s AIX operating system, accessing an Oracle database. In the new implementation, the software resides on an IBM blade server that also houses one blade each for the Oracle database, the application server, the freight system and EDP operations.

“Customers want new features and capabilities,” Miles said. “SmartEnterprise 2 positions us to provide those currently most in demand among the Confederation Freezers customer base.”

Confederation Freezers has consistently kept pace with the evolution of the SmartEnterprise 2 predecessor solution. Headwater’s Delfour SmartEnterprise 2 suite not only represents an upgraded solution, Miles said, but also a comprehensive redesign that incorporates an array of new features and capabilities, among them alerts management, source imaging , expanded labor tracking and expanded voice and data communications.

Confederation Freezers’ SmartEnterprise 2 suite includes the Enterprise Foundation, an integration layer; the RF Voice Foundation, WarehouseLogic logistics management software, the Active Desktop GUI-based single point access and control module, the d’Amigo alert management and reporting tool, and the e-Vista web-based visibility tool that enables customers to track the movement and status of their inventory in real time. Among Confederation Freezers’ largest customers, 20 now use e-Vista, leading to major savings in time and money on all sides.

“Confederation Freezers has used the WarehouseLogic system successfully for more than ten years and now serves some 250 clients, with more than 19,000,000 cubic feet of storage space under management,” Couto noted “It is a large and complex assignment and with SmartEnterprise 2, the company will be able to provide better and faster service at lower cost.”

The company’s facilities communicate with the browser-based logistics management software via the company’s Telnet private network. Over time, Confederation Freezers plans to move its electronic data exchange with customers to EZConnect EDI-XML, a data translation and communications system developed by Headwater Business Partner ACOM Solutions, Inc.

About Confederation Freezers
Confederation Freezers’ facilities represent a mix of freezer, cooler and ambient space in Ontario. The company began in 1974 as a single 1,200,000 cubic foot facility on Summerlea Road in Brampton, Ontario. A series of acquisitions and expansions has grown the business to over 19 million cubic feet in four facilities, all located in Ontario. One Brampton facility is 100 percent freezer; one is 95 percent freezer; and a third is 50 percent cooler and ambient space. The fourth facility, located in Brantford, offers a balance of freezer, cooler and ambient storage. The combination of a strong and talented hands-on Owner/Management team has enabled Confederation Freezers to attain and maintain leadership status in the 3PL Industry.

Welsh Carson Agrees to Acquire Majority Stake in Ozburn-Hessey Logistics

Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe, a New York-based private equity investor, has reached an agreement to acquire a majority interest in Ozburn-Hessey Logistics (OHL), the nation's largest privately held third party logistics (3PL) provider, the company announced today.

WNASHVILLE, TN (PRWEB) June 29, 2021 -- Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe, a New York-based private equity investor, has reached an agreement to acquire a majority interest in Ozburn-Hessey Logistics (OHL), the nation's largest privately held third party logistics (3PL) provider, the company announced today.

The agreement will allow OHL to continue to pursue its operating and growth strategies, which have contributed to double-digit annual revenue growth in each of the past three years, according to Scott McWilliams, CEO of OHL. "Welsh Carson has a strong track record of investing in and managing successful companies in dynamic industries and we are excited to have them as our largest equity partner," McWilliams said.

In its 26-year history, Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe (WCAS) has focused its investment activities on the information & business services and healthcare sectors. Its investments have included a number of high-profile companies with a significant Nashville presence such as Comdata, Quorum Health Group, Ardent Health Services, and OrthoLink.

With the acquisition, Ozburn-Hessey Logistics will continue to focus on delivering value to its customers and creating opportunities for its employees, McWilliams noted. "This event will allow us to continue to aggressively pursue acquisitions throughout North America in the areas of contract warehousing, transportation management, and freight forwarding," he stated.

While the existing management team will remain in place, Ozburn-Hessey Logistics will add Jim Martell to its board as "non-executive" chairman and as an investor, McWilliams said. Martell, a veteran of more than 20 years in transportation and logistics, is the former CEO of SmartMail Services, a $200 million company and one of the leading flat-sized mail and parcel delivery companies in North America.

"OHL has assembled a highly talented and experienced team of associates and built a network of strategically-located facilities that stretches from border to border and coast to coast. We believe there is tremendous opportunity to build upon those strengths in a way that leverages advantages for existing and potential customers, associates and investors," Martell stated.

A 54-year old company founded in Nashville, Ozburn-Hessey Logistics operates 18 multi-client warehouse campuses and nearly 100 total facilities in 20 states. The company delivers customers a menu of supply chain services that includes fulfillment, service parts management, return logistics, cross docking and pool distribution. In total, OHL now manages over 19 million square feet of warehouse space nationwide and offers comprehensive transportation of parcel, truckload and less-than-truckload shipments.

Ozburn-Hessey Logistics' corporate headquarters will remain in the Nashville area, where the company has over 325 of its 2,700 total employees. Other OHL facilities are located in St. Louis (MO), Reno (NV), Atlanta (GA), Chicago (IL), Dallas (TX), Los Angeles (CA), Seattle (WA), Kansas City (MO), Houston (TX), Miami (FL), Indianapolis (IN), Omaha (NE), Memphis (TN), Phoenix (AZ), Knoxville (TN), Richmond (VA), Newark (NJ), Toledo (OH), Jacksonville (FL), Raleigh (NC), Chambersburg (PA), Madison (WI), Fond du Lac (WI), Laredo (TX), Lima (OH) and Columbia (SC).

Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe is the nation's largest private equity investor in information & business services and healthcare. Since its founding in 1979, the firm has raised 14 investment partnerships with total capital over $13 billion and has invested in over 135 companies, whose growth has been supplemented with over 650 follow-on acquisitions.

OHL was advised by Bear Stearns in this transaction, and WCAS by Morgan Stanley and Legg Mason.

Global Institute of Logistics Announces Formation of I.T. Council Under Chairmanship of SAP

The Council will provide the global third party logistics sector with the authoritative forum through which to debate the central I.T. issues affecting the development of the industry.

(PRWEB) June 29, 2021 -- The Global Institute of Logistics (G.I.L.) today announces the launch of its I.T. Council. The Council, under the Chairmanship of SAP AG, which is represented by Mr Till Dengel, Solutions Manager of SAP for Logistic Service Providers solution portfolio, will provide the global third party logistics sector with the authoritative forum through which to debate the central I.T. issues affecting the development of the industry.

The Council will be made up of eight executives comprising two people drawn from each of the four different aspects of the industry: 3PL, Client, I.T. and Services.

FourSoft, the Hyderabad based Technology Company and the recipient of the Institute’s ‘Award of Excellence’ will fill the second I.T. seat represented by Mr Palem Srikanth Reddy, Managing Director of Four Soft

Speaking at today’s press conference at the industry’s 3rd eyefortransport US 3PL Summit, Mr Kieran Ring, CEO at G.I.L. said:

“The global third party logistics industry is in a period of consolidation. 2005 will see an end to this intense period of merger & acquisition and will see the advent of a new, more mature phase in the sector’s development.

Global players find themselves increasingly challenged by the need to integrate existing I.T. solutions, who’s DNA is from the legacy and client services era. The current commitments being made by 3PLs to their clients need to be easily monitored and measured. To this end more robust solutions must be available and real-time, web enabled I.T. solutions will be the order of the day.

In order to facilitate a quick and easy migration to next-generation solutions in the sector, the Institute’s I.T. Council will seek to inform the industry on how the future could look like, with all-party cooperation and the application of the most up to date IT thinking.”

The IT Council, which will meet quarterly, will commission two white papers. The first will seek to present a concise picture of where the industry is currently and the challenges it faces. The second, which will be published in 2006, will respond to the challenges laid out in the first paper together with key recommendations and suggestions.

www.globeinst.org/ITcouncil will be home to the initiative where the activities of the Council will be published in detail with newsletters and white papers available for download.

Speaking at today’s announcement Till Dengel said, “SAP is excited to have the opportunity to play a prominent role in the Global Institute of Logistics. We look forward to working closely with the counsel to apply our deep knowledge gained from our many years of experience in serving more than 12,000 customers in the logistics and the manufacturing industry. Having the right mix of integration technology and business applications helps make SAP an ideal partner to help LSPs become more flexible and modernize their IT infrastructures.”

The remaining members of the Council will be announced over the summer, before convening in the autumn to set about its tasks.

Verizon superpages.com Finds Movers, Moving Companies, Moving Boxes, Storage Units

Online search and shopping service provides how-to moving tips

DALLAS, TX – Moving your family to a new location can be difficult, whether you’re using a moving company to haul your possessions across the country or just using a rental truck to move across town. Finding how-to help is only a click away at Verizon superpages.com. This local search and shopping resource can be a great asset both before and after your move.

Planning before the move can prevent many headaches after the move. Verizon superpages.com is a great place to start building a checklist.

Summer traditionally is the year’s busiest moving season. The first step is to reserve a moving company or rental truck early enough to ensure the most choices and best price. While you’re planning, don’t forget to buy enough packing supplies like packing tape and boxes to fit all of your stuff.

One of the hardest parts of moving is deciding what to pack, sell, give away or throw away. Storage companies are a good solution for holding items you don’t want to part with, but don’t have room for in your new home. Storage units come in several sizes to accommodate a closetful – or houseful – of items.

Movers will not handle hazardous materials, pets or plants. Plan to move these items yourself.

Next on your moving checklist is making your new home move-in ready. Start by contacting your utility companies, phone company, cable television or satellite provider and city’s trash collection service to transfer services to your new home. If you’re moving into a house, don’t forget to have your water and air conditioning turned on in time for move-in day.

To make moving day even easier, hire a cleaning crew to make your new home spotless before you move in. These services also can take care of the mess you leave behind!

Search for local retailers that can help furnish and organize your new space.

Verizon superpages.com also helps you get acquainted with your new neighborhood. Walk yourself through a typical workday and use the site’s local search and mapping features to find nearby:
-- Drycleaners
-- Pharmacies
-- Grocery stores
-- Restaurants
-- Coffee shops
-- Gyms and
-- Parks.

Prior planning and organization using Verizon superpages.com can help ensure a hassle-free move during the busy summer season – or any time of year.

About Verizon superpages.com

Verizon Information Services, a division of Verizon Communications Corp. (NYSE: VZ), is the nation’s most advanced provider of yellow pages and related shopping information. It has $3.6 billion in revenues from products including: Verizon SuperPages yellow pages; Verizon superpages.com (http://www.superpages.com), the nation’s number 1 Internet directory and a leading online shopping resource; and the superpages on the go information directory offered through Verizon Wireless Get It Now services and on other wireless carriers.

TenDigits Launches Global Alliance Program for Mobile CRM -- 20 Inaugural Partners currently closing Significant Deals for Out-of-the-Box BlackBerry® CRM Solution

TenDigits Software Inc., an expert in Mobile CRM solutions, formally launched its “TenDigits Alliance Program” today providing it's leading BlackBerry-based solution, MobileAccess for Microsoft CRM, to Microsoft partners globally. Participants in the Alliance Program include traditional Microsoft ISV's, VAR's and SI's as well as Wireless Carriers seeking to provide effective mobile data solutions to their customers.

Vancouver, B.C. (PRWEB) June 27, 2021 -- TenDigits Software Inc., an expert in Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Customer Relationship Management™ (MSCRM) applications for BlackBerry® from Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM); (TSX: RIM), today formally launches its “TenDigits Alliance Program”, a global program aimed at providing partners that support the deployment of Microsoft CRM with MobileAccessTM.

MobileAccess is a cost-effective wireless CRM solution that gains BlackBerry users immediate access to accurate MSCRM data, where changes to data are instantly stored on the BlackBerry device as well as the office system. TenDigits will be in attendance to present its Alliance Program to partners at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Minneapolis, MN on July 8-10, 2005.

TenDigits has recently signed on 20 partners in key markets in North America and Europe including Vox Wireless, ePartners and AI Informatics GMBH while currently being reviewed by over 30 other global partners. The program is designed specifically for organizations that deploy Microsoft CRM (MS CRM) solutions, and wireless carrier partners who wish to add value to their BlackBerry® offering.

"Our customers have been asking us for a wireless option for Microsoft CRM that leverages BlackBerry devices. The MobileAccess for Microsoft CRM solution will fit many customer requirements where the ability to work wirelessly is critical to successful field automation. Combine this with the capabilities of Microsoft CRM, and this is a powerful end-to-end solution for customers,” says Bart Hammond, Chief Executive Officer of Interlink, a leading MSCRM solution provider.”

A testament to the success of the MobileAccess product is the number of inaugural partners deploying the product to improve their own internal sales processes. “Interlink is now utilizing MobileAccess internally for our BlackBerry users”, Hammond added. “We considered other wireless options, but none provided the same offline access to data, ease of use or out-of-the-box customization and extensibility support.”

MobileAccess provides complete offline access to Leads, Opportunities, Accounts and Activities with an easy-to-use multi-tasking graphical interface. Account updates made remotely from the field or from the office are automatically reflected in both places. Unlike single-page micro-browser solutions with the push-wait-and-see experience, MobileAccess is a smart-client, powered by Flowfinity software, which allows users to work on and navigate multiple records simultaneously – increasing productivity and speeding up data access. Available for international use, MobileAccess is accessible in 14 languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Danish, Dutch, Portuguese, Hebrew, Swedish, Russian, Hungarian, Polish and Czech.

“Partners are under constant pressure to deliver integrated solutions that customers need,” comments Sean Gocher, President and CEO of TenDigits Software. “With MobileAccess we’re bringing a powerful wireless CRM solution that for the first time allows customers to integrate their current IT investment in the Microsoft platform and BlackBerry. We’ve had tremendous success already with our current partners and will be announcing some significant customer contracts during the summer.”

Inaugural partners include 360 Visibility Inc. (www.360visibility.com), Advanced Technologies Support Group Inc. (www.atsgi.com), Aspective (www.aspective.com), Brodie Computes (www.brodie.com), BusinessEdge UK Ltd.

Rush Tracking Systems, RFID Journal and RFID Alliance Lab to host Webinar on RFID Tag Performance

On Wednesday, June 29th from 1pm to 2pm CDT, Rush Tracking Systems, a Kansas City based RFID implementer will host a webinar on RFID tag performance with the University of Kansas’s Information and Telecommunication Technology Center (www.ITTC.KU.edu) and RFID Journal (www.RFIDJournal.com), a leading media company

Kansas City, KS (PRWEB) June 26, 2021 -- The RFID Alliance Lab was launched at the University of Kansas in 2004 to provide testing and benchmarking of RFID and EPC products. The Lab is a nonprofit entity and is completely objective. Its tests are done in controlled conditions and are scientifically repeatable. This ensures that differences in performance are due solely to the differences in the equipment. These tests are supplemented by real-world tests to show how equipment will likely perform in your environment.

In this Webinar, Daniel Deavours, PhD., Research Director for the Lab, and Toby Rush, President of Rush Tracking Systems, who advises the lab, will discuss the results of the Lab's tests and what they mean for end users. Participants in this Webinar will learn:
•Difference in performance characteristics of class 0 and Class 1 tags and how to design systems to cope with these differences.
•Why tags perform poorly around metal and water.
•How to overcome problems tagging products with water and metal.
•How to choose the appropriate tag for your products.
•Difference in performance of tags of the same make and model.
•How to design systems to compensate for the variation in performance.
•Rates of dead or quiet tags from different vendors.
•How to choose the best overall tags for your needs.

“Right now, hundreds of companies are purchasing tags and readers and performing the same tests to determine which tags and readers will work with their products. This is time consuming and wastes resources,” says Mark Roberti, founder and editor of RFID Journal.

“Information is power. The RFID Alliance Lab is equipping end users and system integrators with the information they need to make educated decisions faster, with less risk,” says Toby Rush.

Join Rush Tracking Systems, the RFID Alliance Lab and the RFID Journal for this insightful and educational webinar. More information can be found at http://RFIDJournal.webex.com.

Scifeye LLC Set to Introduce Asset Tracking Technology

New company forms to commercialize groundbreaking technology that adds free-space optical communication capabilities to CMOS imaging sensors

Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) June 23, 2021 - Scifeye LLC today introduced its patent pending technology, the Scifeye™ CMOS Imaging Sensor, to local investors and business leaders at the 2005 Greater Cincinnati Inventor’s Fair. The event marked the official public introduction of the new company and its asset tracking technology that adds free-space optical communication capabilities to CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) imaging sensors. When combined with CMOS imaging sensors found in most digital video cameras, Scifeye’s sensor enables the cameras to capture both the visual imagery of a scene while simultaneously receiving data from Scifeye’s object tags that communicate via high-speed pulses of infrared light.

While Scifeye has multiple potential applications, the technology will be initially deployed to solve asset tracking problems, primarily as a complement or alternative to radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies in situations where RF is problematic or inappropriate to implement.

“There are numerous industries, including maritime shipping, storage and manufacturing, currently using digital cameras and RFID for security and asset tracking that can benefit from Scifeye’s data communications,” said Chris Komnick, president and chief executive officer of Scifeye LLC. “There are situations where RFID is not a complete or effective solution, such as tracking of large metal objects or liquid filled objects that experience RF interference and signal deflection; security breaches, such as RF interception or jamming; or the presence of electro-magnetic interference. In these instances, Scifeye is an ideal alternative or complementary technology to RFID. We are excited about bringing this technology to the marketplace and are confident that by incorporating our unique infrared data communications technology into existing solutions, companies will have a more effective solution for tracking and securing assets.”

Scifeye™ can provide a distinct identification and simultaneous communication flow from multiple tags while overlaying that tracking information onto a live video feed. It can also be applied in situations where tagged objects need to report real-time status and monitoring information. The Scifeye™ technology can be augmented to the design specification of a standard CMOS imaging sensor with virtually no production cost differential when scaled to quantity.

Komnick added, “Our strategy is to pilot multiple implementations in order to quantify the value proposition in real-world scenarios. We will then leverage that information to find the appropriate product partners for licensing the design. The Scifeye technology is well-positioned to capitalize on the explosive growth and adoption of real-time location and asset tracking systems.”

The Scifeye™ technology was conceived and designed by Dr. Fred Beyette, Dr. Philip Wilsey, and Darryl Dieckman beginning in 2002. The optical communications technology was primarily funded through a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant and an Ohio Research Commercialization Grant Program (ORCGP). In July 2005, the technology will be presented for consideration to the U.S. Army, the acting agent for the SBIR grant.

About Scifeye LLC
Founded in May 2005, Scifeye is a privately owned technology company based in Cincinnati, Ohio. The company’s patent pending technology can be leveraged to solve problems in a variety of areas such as optically based networking, motion capture, vehicular control systems, interactive kiosks, and controlled broadcasts of consumer interest information. In June 2005, Scifeye introduced the Scifeye™ CMOS Imaging Sensor, which can be used to solve a variety of asset tracking problems. With Scifeye’s sensor, digital video cameras can capture both the visual imagery of a scene while simultaneously receiving data from object tags that communicate via high-speed pulses of infrared light. Scifeye is currently funded through an SBIR grant and Ohio Research Commercialization Grant. For more information on Scifeye, visit www.scifeye.com.

Ingram Micro, Intechra Team up to Eliminate Asset-Recovery Hassles for Resellers; VARs Get Easy Access to Full Suite of Asset Recovery Services

Intechra, LLC, a pioneer and leader in the asset recovery industry, today announced that it has teamed up with Ingram Micro, Inc. (NYSE: IM), the world’s largest technology distributor, to offer value-added resellers (VARs) in the United States a full spectrum of asset recovery services.

Carrollton, TX (PRWEB) June 23, 2021 -- Intechra, LLC, a pioneer and leader in the asset recovery industry, today announced that it has teamed up with Ingram Micro, Inc. (NYSE: IM), the world’s largest technology distributor, to offer value-added resellers (VARs) in the United States a full spectrum of asset recovery services. These services include:
• Refurbishment of remarketable electronic assets
• Remarketing of electronic assets, including investment recovery for the original owners

MTI Unwraps Enhanced Brokerage Software for Trucking Companies

Melton Technologies (www.mtihorizon.com) has announced its latest release of trucking software for Brokerage and Trucking companies, targeting customers who spend more time trying to find loads than fulfilling them. The new Shipment Broker for Horizon Dispatch builds on MTI's success with providing a single fleet management solution that unites both commercial fleets and logistic businesses. Customers who have been using the new offering have embraced it, noting the time it saves in finding the carriers.

Winston / Salem, NC (PRWEB) June 23, 2021 -- Melton Technologies (www.mtihorizon.com) has announced its latest release of trucking software for Brokerage and Trucking companies, targeting customers who spend more time trying to find loads than fulfilling them. The new Shipment Broker for Horizon Dispatch builds on MTI's success with providing a single fleet management solution that unites both commercial fleets and logistic businesses. Customers who have been using the new offering have embraced it, noting the time it saves in finding the carriers.

Cox Transportation (www.truckingforamerica.com) has been using Horizon's brokerage tools for years. Horizon tracks how often each carrier performs certain legs and with the touch of a button, provides a listing of carriers who have been used in the past to dispatchers for a given load. "The Brokerage features of Horizon ensure we get the right carrier for the right load every time," said Todd Goforth of Cox Transportation. "It saves us valuable time and ensures we can provide quality service to both our carriers and customers."

Companies can now provide even better service by identifying preferred or Favorite Lanes for their carriers. Favorite Lanes are identified by origin, destination, type of equipment, schedule and desired rate. Dispatchers using the software can pull up an instant report for any load from the Horizon Dispatch screen, make the assignment and send off customized rate confirmation sheets.

The Available Carrier feature lets companies log requests from carriers or third parties who have vehicles readily available in a specific area. The carriers don't have to be registered to be listed as being available, much like what currently occurs with freight board services such as Internet Truck Stop (www.internettruckstop.com) or FreightFinder (www.freightfinder.com). "One of the things we've observed is that users are still getting information from multiple places. Even though companies use online services for finding freight and carriers, they are still receiving calls from independent companies, " explained Andrew MacNeill, Technical Marketing Manager at MTI, hinting at future integration with the online boards. "Now this information is put right with the dispatcher, so they can pull it up without having to stop working on the current load."

The enhanced Brokerage features also allow companies to track additional pay charges for their carriers. In addition to mileage, percentage or flat pay, users can add multiple surcharges or costs associated with a given load, including loading charges, tolls or fuel surcharges. The additional charges may also be based on flat, percentage or per mile and are combined into the final carrier pay, accessible with the enhanced Shipment Tracer feature. "Tracking all the miscellaneous information is much better now," described Joe Michetti, co-owner or Ameriline (www.ameri-line.com). "When someone calls looking for a payment, I can find it instantly - the driver, the carrier, anybody."

Shipment Broker is provided as part of the Horizon Dispatch software, the cornerstone of the entire Melton operations Windows-based software, collectively known as Horizon. The latest version of Horizon was released on June 1st, including over 80 enhancements requested directly from customers. Melton Technologies offers software for dispatching, billing, settlements, maintenance, fuel tax reporting and driver log management. MTI's ExecView performance management system pulls information from these systems, including the new brokerage software, to provide companies with a real-time snapshot of their operations. "Our new brokerage features show that MTI is committed not just to company-owned fleets but to all areas of the trucking industry," stated Chuck Melton, President of MTI. "Horizon offers a single place from which companies can manage virtually every aspect of their business, making them more productive than ever."

Melton Technologies (MTI) has been a provider of transportation software since 1984, helping trucking companies manage a combined total of over 10,000 trucks nationwide and manage companies who provide logistics services. More information about MTI may be found on their web site at http://www.mtihorizon.com or by calling 800-888-1246.

Mallory Alexander International Logistics acquires Quast & Co., Inc.

Mallory Alexander International Logistics announced the acquisition of Quast & Co., Inc., marking another milestone in the company’s history.

Memphis, TN (PRWEB) June 23, 2021 -- From cotton bales to video game sales, Mallory Alexander International Logistics (http://www.mallorygroup.com) has been serving America’s leading industries for more than 75 years.

ADS Logistics Recognised by Institute as Leading Specialist Logistics Provider

ADS Logistics has been named the Best Specialist Logistics Provider The Global Institute of Logistics has named ADS Logistics as its choice for “Best Specialist Logistics Provider 2005.”

(PRWEB) June 22, 2021 -- Following a detailed research and selection process into the leading providers of supply chain and third party logistics services, the Global Institute of Logistics has recognized ADS Logistics as the leading provider of specialist logistics services. The comprehensive study conducted by the research department of the Institute draws for a significant part on a quality-ranking system based on responses provided by concerned parties within the Global logistics end-users sector.

Lead analyst at the Institute Siobhan Kelly in her capacity as team leader of the Institutes G50 program said in support of today’s announcement of ADS Logistics as ‘Best Specialist Logistics Provider 2005’

“The research department continuously examines the providers operating in the logistics sector and through its expert knowledge establishes its choice of the leading 3PLs. ADS is uniquely focused on the metals industry and the expertise it has developed marks the company out in the sector. Based on this research the Awards Committee selected ADS as its choice for the leading specialist provider.

These awards are to honour those 3PLs that have helped clients save money and sell more. It is on that pragmatic basis that award-winners can be regarded as the best in the business.

On conclusion of its research and following careful analysis of the quality and value provided by the principal logistics service providers, ADS emerged as the unanimous choice of the Awards Committee for Best Specialist Logistics Provider.”

The purpose of the study was:
1.To set forth criteria and procedures for developing and maintaining a wider classifying blueprint for assessing the key principles governing material flow in the Global logistics and transport sector and to highlight the unity of different functions on the supply chain, together with inventory management, capacity utilization and ‘movement’, which reflect the basics of logistics.

2.To establish which organisations on the supply side of the manufacturing equation displayed an ability to react most quickly to the changing face of logistics and make the most significant contribution to lean manufacture, that is delivering only what is needed by the customer, when it is needed in the quantities ordered. This method of manufacturing is done in a way that minimizes the time taken to deliver the finished goods, the amount of labour needed, the floor-space required and it does it with the highest quality, usually at the lowest cost. This system changes manufacturing from large batch processing to product based, one-at-a-time flow production.

3.To investigate the role played by logistics providers in developing outbound solutions for manufacturing and the components of the supply chain that ensure the flow of goods from origin to consumption. The ability of the provider must be to maintain the materials management functions of the supply chain, taking a product from the point of concept through delivery to the customer. Value added services and understanding and incorporating customer requirements into supply-chain processes are all essential elements of supply-chain management and those providers that satisfy clients needs contribute to the development of the sector as a whole.

ADS is specifically focused as a supply chain solutions provider to the metals industry, in particular steel and aluminium which is the integral part of manufacturing industry. The company handles 5 million tonnes of material per annum, over 300,000 transport (truck, rail, water, rail) movements and has the only temperature and humidity controlled, rail served, national warehouse network.

ADS has over 30 years experience in providing supply chain solutions for the metals industry facilitating its customers with a variety of physical distribution and management services including business analysis and outsourced opportunities.

The Company’s capabilities in the technology area, primarily its supply chain management system, LoMaS® provides connectivity and visibility to all the participants. The system was developed internally and provides a management system that integrates the metals supply chain. Initially for its own warehousing and distribution divisions, the solution is now available to metals industry focused companies through an Application Service Provider arrangement.

ADS provides the complete range of outsourcing services to its clients to successfully source, coordinate and manage the metals supply chain to their specific requirements. Customized transportation services ensure that freight flow is optimised both nationally and internationally and together with crucially important document management. ADS distribution facilities are strategically located in close proximity to metals manufacturing centric geographies for just-in-time logistics programs.

Commenting on the award Kieran Ring CEO of the Institute said, “In choosing ADS Logistics, the Institute is confident that it has chosen an excellent organisation on which to bestow our inaugural ‘Best Specialist Logistics Provider 2005’ award. The express purpose of concentrating our research efforts on specialist 3PL providers was to demonstrate the ubiquitous nature of third party logistics and its application.

ADS has it all, a real working knowledge of the sector it serves forged through generations of hands on experience. Its portfolio of strategically located logistics facilities and its willingness to add value to product through logistics modelling has ensured its position as a Best In Class 3PL in the metals sector.

However, if I were asked to pinpoint the key reason for our selection of ADS I would say it is LoMaS®, the company’s proprietary supply chain management integration software, this is the tool that seamlessly integrates the client and ADS, providing what ADS calls the supply chain’s glass pipeline.

All of the Institutes current research points to IT as the critical factor which will determine the development of our industry together with the extent to which we can achieve total integration and visibility with our clients through technology. ADS in this regard is at the cutting edge and is uniquely placed to bring the type of cost savings only possible through 3PL partnerships to a sector that desperately needs to find both savings and margin rapidly.”

Reacting to news of today’s announcement Stephen Fraser President and Chief Executive Officer of ADS Logistics, LLC said

MTI Welcomes Log Creek Timber as Horizon Trucking Software Customer

Melton Technologies's Horizon Trucking Software (www.mtihorizon.com) has been chosen as the preferred dispatching solution for Log Creek Timber (www.logcreektimber.com) of Edgefield, SC. Log Creek Timber has been in the timber harvesting business since 1984 and chose Horizon Dispatch as the best way to move their company forward into the future.

Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) June 21, 2021 -- Melton Technologies's Horizon Trucking Software (www.mtihorizon.com) has been chosen as the preferred dispatching solution for Log Creek Timber (www.logcreektimber.com) of Edgefield, SC. Log Creek Timber has been in the timber harvesting business since 1984 and chose the Horizon Dispatch and QUALCOMM mobile communication system as the best way to move their company forward into the future.

The timber industry has specific needs in the managing of crews and sites, including the challenge that few roads and mileage systems support the location. Reggie Williams, Operations Manager of Log Creek Timber, needed a system that could graphically show where his trucks were and track them, using the terminology that his staff were familiar with. Log Creek has long had the foresight to invest in well-trained employees to assist management. With the Horizon trucking software, the operation tracks the individual crews and locations more efficiently than before.

"Log Creek uses terms that aren't very common in the trucking industry but are used everyday in the logging world, " explained Andrew MacNeill, Technology Marketing Manager of MTI. "With its built-in features, Horizon was able to display all of the information using terms that Log Creek's people understood, making learning a new system fast and easy."

Further improving business operations is Horizon Circle of Service, software that automates the dispatch process based on messages sent from the drivers on their QUALCOMM (www.qualcomm.com) mobile units. With accurate GPS positions and Horizon Mapping, Log Creek staff can see on a MapPoint (www.microsoft.com/mappoint) map where all of their units are.

"Horizon and the MTI trucking software are constantly meeting the needs of the trucking industry's niche areas - where standard solutions just don't fit," said Scott Gresham. "Log Creek showed us their situation and we have provided them with a cost-effective solution that meets their needs today and will grow with them."

Melton Technologies was one of the first companies to provide integration with QUALCOMM's mobile communication systems in the late 1980's and has gone on to be one of QUALCOMM's premier software partners.

Melton Technologies (MTI) has been a provider of transportation software since 1984, helping trucking companies manage a combined total of over 10,000 trucks nationwide. More information about MTI may be found on their web site at http://www.mtihorizon.com.

California Tool Company, On the Move

Patented system gets positive attention from Cal-OSHA and a boost in the consumer market.

(PRWEB) June 20, 2021 -- The GRIPSystem™, (www.gripsystem.com) a patented tool for anyone faced with the often dreaded task of moving large items such as furniture, appliances, TV’s and other awkward items, gets some welcomed encouragement from Cal-OSHA with an inclusion in their recent publication of recommended safety solutions. “This is a huge boost for our product as well as our company,” says Robert Ripoyla and Larry Garman, owners of GRIPSystem. "We’ve spent over five years in development and testing to make sure the product had the best design possible, and it’s great to get the recognition of such a powerful organization as OSHA.”

The GRIPSystem’s design incorporates a shoulder harness and lumbar support which allows tandem users to lift and carry virtually any size and shaped object on an adjustable support strap with a new found ease, stability and safety. “It’s an amazing tool that you have to see to believe,” Says Ripoyla. The design redirects an objects weight directly to the user’s legs, drastically reducing the stress and strain normally put on the lower back, arms and hands with conventional lifting techniques. The added ability to leave the users hands free to balance the load and negotiate the path has helped to make the GRIPSystem the tool of choice for many in the moving industry.

Although consumer feedback has been extremely positive, it’s the hard facts and safety data that have the company excited. Results from a two year bio-mechanics study conducted at the University of California at Davis, which was recently published in two national medical journals, showed the GRIPSystem’s patented design reduced the back strain caused by lifting by as much as 70% over normal lifting techniques. A staggering reduction that’s getting attention from workers’ compensation insurance companies and risk-management consultants across the country who deal with occupational safety concerns.

“But it’s not limited to the moving industry,” Garman points out. “Any job that requires the manual lifting, carrying or moving of large, heavy, hard to move items could benefit from the GRIPSystem. It’s really only a matter of how creative the end users can be in adapting it to their needs.” Aside from working with several different industries, introducing the system and it's techniques to their specific trades, the GRIPSystem has also began offering custom color combinations and custom logo embroidering for companies who wish to implement the system into their workplace, and retain their unique company identity.

It appears that all their hard work and effort is paying off. Consumer sales in the first quarter of 2005 jumped by 52% in the US market alone. And with no sign of slowing down, the GRIPSystem anticipates bigger moves on the horizon.

CBP approves MSR eCustoms' ACE e-Manifest Solution

MSR eCustoms receives ACE e-Manifest accreditation from U.S. CBP

Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) June 17, 2021 -- The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has accredited MSR eCustoms to provide Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) e-Manifest services for carriers shipping goods to the United States by highway.

eCustoms is a leading provider of automated export and import management and compliance solutions in North America for almost 25 years, and the accreditation comes as CBP begins implementing a mandatory advance electronic cargo and conveyance notification system to account for shipments entering the U.S. from Canada by highway.

eCustoms' ACE e-Manifest solution is a web-based service that enables businesses to fully comply with mandatory advance electronic notification regulations. It meets strict CBP requirements for all electronic message types and submission times: 30 minutes before the truck reaches a U.S. Customs border checkpoint for FAST carriers and one hour for all others.

CBP is expected to fully implement ACE e-Manifest by next year. Non-compliance will result in fines of between US$5,000 and $10,000 as well as trucks being turned back at the border.

“We are right at the cutting edge of CBP’s highway plans. Our aim is to help highway carriers of all sizes to be able to comply with these mandatory regulations quickly and effectively,” said Jackson Wood, Corporate Business Manager at MSR eCustoms. “More importantly, it means that carriers can submit all the relevant information to Customs within the required time period to ensure their trucks cross the border as smoothly as possible.”

eCustoms' ACE e-Manifest solution is part of the Visual Gateway™ Suite, a collection of powerful web-based solutions that enables businesses to comply with advance electronic notifications regulations. Visual Gateway™ also covers electronic notifications for air, marine and rail carriers.

Citadon to Extend its Online Security Offerings with Technology from Bharosa

Exclusive Agreement Will Make Industry-Leading Web Security Platform Available to Citadon Clients Worldwide

Santa Clara & San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 16, 2021 -- Bharosa, a provider of Web-based security solutions to combat online identity theft, and Citadon®, a provider of integrated Web-based collaboration, document management and business process management solutions, today announced an agreement to expand the range of security options available to worldwide users of Citadon’s Web-based collaboration solutions.

Under the terms of this agreement, Citadon will integrate Bharosa's v.Crypt™ platform into the Citadon CW (Collaboration Workspace) platform. As a result, Citadon clients will have even greater flexibility to authenticate use at the document, task, user, and event level and will have additional tools to satisfy digital signature requirements, which are very important in highly regulated industries such as pharmaceutical trials and financial services.

Named one of the top 100 Fastest Growing Companies Private Companies by the San Francisco Business Times, Citadon has a rapidly growing clientele that includes some of the largest enterprises in the world — companies with business-critical projects and stringent and rising concerns regarding information security. "Our clients require the ability to securely exchange information with their external business partners and want the ability to tailor the level of security access to meet their business needs” said Howard Koenig, President and CEO for Citadon. “In this climate of growing risk, we’re committed to delivering the most rigorous security available. By making Bharosa’s v.Crypt solution available as an option for Citadon CW, we’re able to provide industry-leading protection against all known forms of online fraud as well as future threats.”

The Bharosa v.Crypt™ platform is the first complete enterprise defense against Internet-based fraud, offering advanced user authentication and fraud monitoring, detection and alerting capabilities. Bharosa secures applications without needing hardware, software or devices, which is critical to businesses like Citadon, who host services on the Web. "Bharosa has found an effective way to guard businesses and their consumers against phishing, Trojans and other online frauds without use of any devices or downloads," said Paul Saunders, information security analyst for WR Hambrecht + Co.

Bharosa CEO Jon Fisher states businesses can be much more confident working with solution providers like Citadon who “are taking action on behalf of their customers’ interests, not waiting for the solutions of the past to catch up to today’s risks. Smart businesses know what having high standards for service means in today’s world,” says Fisher. “It means you can’t implement new software systems, a process which can take months, at every turn, in response to every new risk. Systems need to be fluid enough to adapt to what in six months might be a whole new set of threats associated with doing business online. At Bharosa, which means trust, we’re creating confidence in a solution that will help our clients rise to tomorrow’s challenges.”

Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC) Embraces the Spanish-speaking Market

Because of growing demand, Technology Evaluation Centers, Inc. (TEC) has launched its on-line services in Spanish. TEC, a global enterprise software analyst firm, recently launched its on-line ERP, SCM, Financials, and Human Resources Evaluation Centers in Spanish to serve Latin America and Spain more effectively.

Montreal, Canada (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) June 13, 2021 -- Technology Evaluation Centers Inc. (TEC), a global enterprise software analyst firm, recently launched its on-line ERP, SCM, Financials, and Human Resources Evaluation Centers in Spanish to serve Latin America and Spain more effectively. These evaluation centers help project managers, consultants, and decision makers compare and qualify the most appropriate systems based on their own unique priorities.

"TEC is the only global technology company of its type," said Barry Melsom, Vice President – Global Marketing and Sales. "Spanish is the first of many different versions of TEC to adequately penetrate local market requirements and more than adequately fulfill local needs."

TEC's service in Spanish started in March 2005, and since then, it has helped over 3,600 evaluations through our ERP, SCM, Financials, and Human Resources evaluation centers. It also provides Spanish-speaking professionals with the latest news through a daily newsletter, which has experienced a 120 percent weekly growth in readership since March 1st. This indicates that TEC's content and services have been very well received, filling a void in the Spanish-speaking market for impartial enterprise software expertise.

According to IDC, in 2004 companies invested $26.4 billion (USD) in IT in Latin America, and the software segment exceeded $4.1 billion (USD) that same year. Moreover, they are expecting a growth of over 10 percent.

TEC developed the unique concept of evaluation centers, which offers comprehensive knowledge to help managers, consultants, and decision makers reduce the risk, cost, and time related to enterprise software selections through a detailed and complete evaluation.

Each evaluation center has a knowledge base associated with it, containing detailed information on software applications. Application manufacturers and vendors fill out a complete RFI including thousands of criteria. This information is vetted by experienced IT analysts before it is listed in the appropriate evaluation center. End users then use these knowledge bases to specify and prioritize their technical and functional requirements. TEC's patented algorithm and analysis engine for its evaluation centers, eBestMatch™, identifies the applications and vendors that best match end users'needs.

TEC also offers material to support its evaluation centers, such as RFP templates, white papers, an IT vendor directory, a consultant directory, vendor and application reports, articles, and a free daily newsletter in Spanish and English, which contains relevant information on the IT world and its impact on organizations.

About the ERP Evaluation Center
The ERP Evaluation Center (http://www.erpevaluation.com/press/es) features research on more than 200 ERP applications that enable the integration of business processes in over twenty functional areas, from transport management, sales force automation, product lifecycle management, to business intelligence.

Currently, and as part of an effort to expand its services in Latin America, TEC has established partnerships with the following digital media to advertise its evaluation centers on a regional basis:

1. InfoChannel in Mexico, to advertise ERP
2. Tecnología Empresarial in Mexico, to advertise ERP
3. DeGerencia.com in Venezuela, to advertise ERP
4. Transporte Siglo XXI in Mexico, to advertise SCM
5. LearningReview in Argentina, to advertise HR

In the near future, TEC will continue with this strategy to penetrate the Spanish-speaking market, establishing new partnerships with organizations and digital media publishers and incorporating local applications in its evaluation centers.

Jobing.com Goes Trucking to Help Colorado Carriers with their Shortage of Drivers

"With more than 81% of Colorado’s communities solely served by trucks for their freight and goods, the trucking industry is vitally important to the state’s economy. Open driving positions for our members can mean serious delays,” states Greg Fulton, Executive Director of the Colorado Motor Carriers Association. “This partnership is the first step to ensure qualified drivers are quickly matched to appropriate positions.”

(PRWEB) June 12, 2021 -- Jobing.com, Colorado’s leading locally focused employment website, and the Colorado Motor Carriers Association have joined forces to help trucking companies hire drivers. In this new partnership arrangement, Jobing.com provides a fully-integrated job board on the Colorado Motor Carriers Association website at www.cmca.com. Drivers, logistics specialists, warehouse, mechanics and others seeking work in the logistics industry can find them in one central location. The demand for these types of skills is very high. “The driver market is the tightest it has been in 20 years,” American Trucking Association (ATA) President and CEO Bill Graves said. “It’s a major limitation to the amount of freight that motor carriers can haul. It’s critical that we find ways to tap a new labor pool, increase wages and recruit new people into the industry that keeps our national economy moving.” According to a recent survey by ATA, there is currently a national shortage of about 20,000 drivers that is expected to continue to grow.

“With more than 81% of Colorado’s communities solely served by trucks for their freight and goods, the trucking industry is vitally important to the state’s economy. Open driving positions for our members can mean serious delays,” states Greg Fulton, Executive Director of the Colorado Motor Carriers Association. “This partnership is the first step to ensure qualified drivers are quickly matched to appropriate positions.”

Visitors to the CMCA website will have access to the job board from the site homepage and have the ability to search for and apply to local transportation, driver, warehouse and maintenance jobs. Candidates may also build a resume online or post an existing resume to the system, which will be searchable by employers. This partnership will provide organizations and job candidates an excellent, targeted vehicle to promote and find local transportation/driver positions in Colorado. “Jobing.com is excited about this partnership,” said Kim Baird, PHR, General Manager of Jobing.com. Baird continued, “the launch of this new job board provides CMCA website visitors the ability to find and advance their careers in the logistics/trucking industry.”

Oceanwide Offers ACI Phase II Compliance in Multiple Formats

Helps Airlines, freight intermediaries meet the Canada Border Security Agencies upcoming requirement for advance electronic manifest information.

(PRWEB) June 10, 2021 -- Oceanwide Offers ACI Phase 2 in Multiple Formats Any-to-Any Data Translation Supports Conversion to UN/EDIFACT Requirement

Oceanwide Inc. (http://www.oceanwide.com), a leading provider of on-demand software for international trade, announced the availability of sophisticated data translation services to help companies meet the Canada Border Services Agency’s (CBSA) UN/EDIFACT requirement for Advance Commercial Information (ACI) Phase 2 reporting.

The service enables reporting companies to submit Commercial Information in any electronic format (XML, X12, Cargo IMP, Web Form) for translation to EDIFACT and submission to CBSA. Oceanwide currently manages platform-to-platform integration for over 500 clients, including SITA integration for Air AMS (US Customs and Border Protection), importers, freight forwarders and customs brokers.

Unlike CBP’s Air AMS program, Air ACI will not initially support industry-standard Cargo IMP messaging. Participants will either need to develop EDIFACT messaging in-house or turn to third party providers like Oceanwide. Additional and updated information on ACI requirements is available at http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/import/advance/menu-e.html.

Cooper Construction and AMB Property Corporation Break Ground at AMB Milton/401 Business Park

Canadian–U.S. collaboration paves the way for one million square feet of distribution facilities in the Greater Toronto Area

Oakville, Ontario (PRWEB) June 9, 2021 -- Cooper Construction Limited of Oakville, Ontario has been selected by AMB Property Corporation (NYSE:AMB), a global developer and owner of industrial real estate, to build AMB’s first project in Canada. AMB recently acquired a 33-acre site and 15-acre option from Cooper Construction on Regional Road 25, just north of Highway 401, which will support development of one million square feet of logistics and distribution space in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

Demand for industrial space in the GTA continues to be strong with average vacancy rates in the 5% range over the past 10-years. The GTA is North America’s fourth largest industrial market, after Los Angeles, Chicago and the greater New York/New Jersey area. Its geographic position and significant manufacturing base make it an extremely important North American distribution hub market. One quarter of Canada’s consumer population lives with a 100-mile radius of the GTA and approximately half the U.S. population is located within a one-day drive of Toronto’s prime industrial locations.

“AMB Milton/401 Business Park is well situated for third-party logistics and bulk distribution customers,” said Jay Cornforth, AMB’s senior vice president, development. “The park is located just 15-20 minutes from Toronto Pearson International Airport, has rapid access to Highway 401 and is two and a half hours from the Detroit/Windsor border crossing – Canada’s busiest point of land entry. The highly functional and well-located product we are developing with Cooper Construction will help our customers speed their goods to market.”

Cooper Construction, which has been actively engaged in all aspects of the construction industry in Ontario since 1905, is providing design/build construction services for AMB, including architectural, structural, mechanical and electrical together with turnkey construction services for the state-of-the-art facility.

“We have worked with AMB to create the GTA’s most functional distribution facility in the market,” said Ken Nevar, Executive Vice President, Cooper Construction. "With rapid access to customers via Highway 401, the AMB Milton/401 Business Park development is ideally suited for companies looking for a well-positioned location in the flourishing community of Milton."

The facility plans call for outside storage accommodating ample trailer parking and 52-foot wide bays. Building depths will be approximately 355 feet with a clear height of 28 feet and column spacing of 52 x 50 feet. The facility will be rear loaded, with a dock door ratio of 1/7,000 square feet and independent truck courts of 183 feet. The property will benefit from ESFR sprinkler systems and has been granted M2 zoning status, encompassing both warehouse and distribution uses.

The listing team of Gord Cook and Ian Gragtmans of Colliers International will represent AMB in the leasing of AMB Milton 401 Business Park. They have successfully closed more than 11 million square feet of real estate transactions since 1998.

Paramount Pallet Inc. (“Paramount”) announced today that it has recently purchased six (6) pallet services facilities located across Canada. These facilities were previously the Canadian Pallet Services Division of IFCO Systems N.V. (“IFCO”). The sale, which was official on June 3, 2005, created the largest Canadian owned and operated full pallet services company in the nation.

Toronto (PRWEB) June 9, 2021 -- Paramount Pallet Inc.

Our top managers have a combined 50 years of experience in the pallet business, and we are excited to be part of the ownership of the company and to be able to invest in our future in Canada.”

IFCO views the sale as a strategic divestiture of its non-core operations.

We are pleased to sell the Canadian Pallet Services operations to the management team, and we are happy to have formed a strategic alliance with them for any cross-border opportunities.”

Mr. Sharples added, “Since we have such a strong working relationship with IFCO and no changes are being made in the management or the employee base, the transition will be very smooth for our customers. We are committed to making this change transparent to them, and we will be providing the same high level of quality and service that our customers have come to expect from us.”

According to Sharples, Paramount will be well-advised by a knowledgeable and experienced board of directors. Serving on the board will be experienced entrepreneurs and financiers. The Chairman will be Joel Dumaresq, with Dave Dumaresq, Keith Ebert, Fraser Campbell, Mr. Russell and Mr. Sharples as Directors.

New Paper Examines Alternative Technology to RFID for Retailers and Manufacturers Seeking Multiple-Asset Traceability

A new paper, entitled “The Alternative to RFID: Finding the Silver Bullet for Traceability,” examines the benefits of an alternative technology to RFID in rapid multiple-asset AIDC and asset tracking applications. The paper is available as a free download at: http://www.visidot.com.

Tel Aviv, Israel (June 8, 2021) -- A new paper, entitled “The Alternative to RFID: Finding the Silver Bullet for Traceability,” examines the benefits of an alternative technology to RFID in rapid multiple-asset AIDC and asset tracking applications.

“Retailers and manufacturers know that traceability is a must-have for many products, ranging from sirloin cuts to baby cribs to steel-belted radials,” notes Roger Hecker, product manager, ImageID Ltd. “Unfortunately many intelligent packaging solutions designed to deliver real-time visibility with end-to-end traceability are not yet ready for primetime.”

The paper discusses the challenges facing the deployment of RFID today, compares RFID vs. Visidot accuracy levels, and describes automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) solutions in key manufacturing and retail industry applications.

“Supply chain and logistics operations need near-100% reading accuracy, real-time data for true visibility across the supply chain, standards-based solutions for interoperability with other systems, a cost-effective solution with minimal recurring costs, and solutions that work now,” Hecker said.

In the paper, three applications of the Visidot Automatic Identification and Data Capture solution are examined, including inbound and outbound shipment verification, management of reusable assets and identification of labels from long distances and in a large field of view, involving:

- A Ford Motor Company plant in Dearborn, Michigan, where the Visidot system is boosting productivity as part of its fully automated Build Order system to produce Ford F150 trucks
- IFCO Systems’ use of Visidot technology to trace, obtain real-time inventory data, record shipments and returns of millions of its reusable plastic containers at its Service Centers and Storage depots throughout Europe and North America
- In the retail supply chain field, the Visidot can help reduce costly charge-backs from retail customers by verifying all of the boxes in each outbound order and use of the stored image from each read for proof of shipment and condition.

The paper, “The Alternative to RFID: Finding the Silver Bullet for Traceability,” is available as a free download from: http://www.visidot.com.

About ImageID and Visidot:
ImageID, the provider of the Visidot™ solution (http://www.visidot.com), develops and markets advanced multiple-asset Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) solutions. Based on imaging technology and sophisticated algorithms, the Visidot solution is capable of identifying and decoding hundreds of unique standard barcodes simultaneously in a single read, with unprecedented speed and accuracy.

OTS Logistics Group Announces Major Acquisition With Eye On China

Global ocean freight powerhouse acquires the business of leading ocean freight consolidator Ocean World Shipping in Hong Kong; will gain access to largest network of neutral freight consolidation in China.

(PRWEB) June 8, 2021 -- OTS Logistics Group (OTS LG) announced it had completed the acquisition of the assets and business of Ocean World Shipping (OWS) in Hong Kong. Ocean World Shipping is a pre-eminent consolidator of ocean freight services with a network servicing 8 locations in China and is the leading provider of neutral consolidation services in that country. The acquisition of the business also gives OTS LG access to the network in China.

“This is a vital progression in the global system of logistics services that we are stitching together”, Mr. Owen Glenn, Chairman of OTS Logistics Group said. “The acquisition will add over 1 million cubic meters of LCL freight to our network. The significance of this volume is the economy of scale that we will now be able to offer our customers that is unmatched in the market place”. Mr Glenn has stated recently that the group has a revenue target of USD 1 billion in the next few years. “Of course this acquisition helps us to get closer to that goal but the key point is that we now have a network of leading players that links two of the most dynamic economies in the world today – China and the USA. We can add substantial value to shippers and consignees on either side and make the supply chain so much more efficient. We have now put in place one of the largest networks of point-to-point services, including pre-carriage, ocean freight and destination services, in the world.”

OTS LG plans to bring the service methods and technology that has made its own offices and agents so successful, particularly in the USA, to the locations currently serviced by OWS. “We were particularly attracted to the processes and systems that have made the OTS Logistics group a leading global player in deciding that this transaction made sense for our customers”, Mr Thomas Tong, President of OWS, said. “Collaborative technologies are vital to success in today’s logistics game. Even though many companies talk about linking systems together, very few succeed. OTS Logistics Group offered us a vision of shared systems that was very attractive to our own growth plans.”

The group plans to keep the OWS brand operational. “The OWS brand is successful in the market place. Our systems already accommodate multiple brands and we have a history of leveraging brand loyalty into back office efficiency”, Mr. Michael Dye, CEO of OTS Logistics Group for the Asia Pacific, said. “Look at our other brands – Brennan, Conterm, Direct Container Line and Vanguard. DCL has a 27 year history while Vanguard is a relatively new brand and yet we are able to successfully share back office systems. We know how to keep brands distinct and will continue to let OWS customers experience the unique service and customer satisfaction that they are used to.”

Management of both OTS Logistics Group, which is represented in Hong Kong by Vanguard Logistics and the acquired business of Ocean World Shipping (OWS) will continue to play key roles in the new merged business.

OTS Logistics Group recently announced that its subsidiary Vanguard Logistics had acquired a Class A license in Zhuhai, China and that group level senior management would now be located in Hong Kong. Zhuhai is a focal point for the group – a substantial investment is planned there in the form of a Global Resource Center that will provide support facilities for its global network. The company will continue to pursue acquisition opportunities in Asia and elsewhere.

About OTS Logistics Group :
OTS Logistics Group is a major global provider of logistics services including ocean freight consolidation. It operates through multiple brands worldwide including AFS, Brennan, Conterm, DCL, Export Freight Services, GPS and Vanguard Logistics. The group operates 177 own offices and agencies worldwide in over 105 countries and handles over 200,000 TEU of ocean freight annually. The group provides a logistics network of pre-carriage, ocean freight and destination services that allow it to operate one of the largest point-to-point networks in the world.

Paul Robbins of Caribbean Shipping Services Named Maritime Person of the Year

Paul Robbins of Caribbean Shipping Services has been named Maritime Person of the Year by the Jacksonville Propeller Club.

(PRWEB) June 7, 2021 -- Paul Robbins, President of Caribbean Shipping Services and Vice-President of Caribbean Cold Storage, was named Maritime Person of the Year by the Jacksonville chapter of the Propeller Club. The award was presented to Robbins by Eric Bryson, President of the Propeller Club at an annual awards banquet held at the Jacksonville Port Authority Cruise Terminal.

“When Caribbean Shipping was founded in 1993 it began to fill a tremendous void in the Jacksonville transportation community”, stated Bryson. “As a primary customer of several liner companies serving the Port of Jacksonville Caribbean Shipping has played a leading part in the steady growth of the Port’s business. The innovative guidance of Paul Robbins promises great future success for Caribbean Shipping Services and for the Port of Jacksonville.”

“To receive this award from a distinguished organization such as the Propeller Club is truly an honor”, said Paul Robbins. “We are proud to consider ourselves partners with the Port of Jacksonville and other members of this organization.”

In January, Caribbean was presented with the prestigious Navigator Award from Frank Peake, President of Sea Star Line, one of their partners in the Puerto Rico trade lane. This highly touted award is presented to an individual or company that made a significant impact on Sea Star’s trek towards their goals and objectives.

Also recently, Caribbean Shipping Services was at the top of the list of Port of Jacksonville trade partners according to their 2004 statistics. Caribbean was listed as the top locally owned company exporting to Puerto Rico, Jacksonville’s number one trade partner.

Caribbean Shipping Services was founded in 1993 by Paul and Julie Robbins. Today they operate from their main offices in Jacksonville, FL and satellite offices in Miami, FL, San Juan, PR, Charlotte, NC and Howell, NJ. The company has twice been named to INC Magazine’s list of 100 Fastest Growing Inner City Companies.

Caribbean Shipping Services At The Top Of The List of Jaxport Trade Partners

Recently released statistics from Jacksonville Port Authority list Caribbean Shipping Services as the largest locally owned shipper to Puerto Rico, Jaxport’s number one trade partner.

(PRWEB) June 7, 2021 -- Jacksonville based Caribbean Shipping Services has been cited as the largest locally owned shipper to the Puerto Rico market by newly released statistics from the Jacksonville Port Authority. Puerto Rico is the Port of Jacksonville’s largest trading partner, with almost three million tons of cargo exported in 2004. The main exports to the island include grocery store merchandise and various foodstuffs, which Caribbean Shipping Services specializes in.

Although the Port of Jacksonville itself only employs about 150 people, the shipping industry’s related companies conducting business through Jaxport account for nearly 45,000 jobs in northeast Florida.

“By offering terrific service at competitive prices, Caribbean Shipping Services has been successful in growing our business, and the Port of Jacksonville continues to grow along with us”, said Julie Robbins, Vice President. “Jacksonville is a great city for us to be headquartered in due to its close proximity to our focal market, the Caribbean.”

“Caribbean Shipping Services has always had good fortune to find quality employees who have stuck with us through the years here in Jacksonville. The continuity of our staff is one of the key contributors to our growth”, added Paul Robbins, CEO.

Caribbean Shipping Services was founded in 1993 by Paul and Julie Robbins. Today they operate from their main offices in Jacksonville, FL and satellite offices in Miami, FL, San Juan, PR, Charlotte, NC and Howell, NJ.

StorageByMail.com Announces the Demise of the Traditional Mini Storage Business

StorageByMail.com is a new company offering consumers an alternative to traditional mini storage. Customers download and print prepaid shipping labels and have access to unlimited storage space and door-to-door delivery thanks to a unique partnership with the United States Postal Service.

Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) May 7, 2022 -- For decades, consumers and small business owners who needed additional storage space had only one choice – open the yellow pages and locate the local mini storage facility. Chances are, that facility was located in a bad section of town, did not offer a pick-up and delivery service and forced customers to pay the same flat monthly fee regardless of how much space they actually used in a given month.

Now, with the recent launch of StorageByMail.com, that has all changed. Through a partnership with the United States Postal Service, StorageByMail.com offers customers prepaid shipping labels that bring unlimited storage capacity right to their doorstep. Customers simply print a shipping label, affix it to the box they want to store and place it in the mail. Once the box is received, it is priced according to its exact dimensions and held in a central warehouse. Through the StorageByMail.com website, customers can keep track of their items in storage and request return delivery at anytime.

The StorageByMail.com business model capitalizes on several key trends in the marketplace. First, Americans are increasingly migrating into urban areas and trading space for location and lifestyle. Second, Americans are increasingly strapped for time and now want basic services delivered directly to their doors. These trends have transformed industries and led to the rise of innovative new companies including Netflix, FreshDirect and, now, StorageByMail.com

StorageByMail.com is the only truly nationwide storage provider and is ideal for storing seasonal clothing, documents, excess business inventory and virtually anything that can fit in a box.

Smart Move GPS Technology Eliminates the Risk Associated with Moving

The biggest risk in moving today is lost, stolen or “mis-shipped” items. Smart Move eliminates loss by 100%. Customer’s goods are shipped in a state of the art designed HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) container, the Smart Vault™.

Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 6, 2021 -- The biggest risk in moving today is lost, stolen or “mis-shipped” items. Smart Move eliminates loss by 100%. Customer’s goods are shipped in a state of the art designed HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) container, the Smart Vault™. The vault measures 6ft W x 7.5ft L x 7.3ft H. The vault is equipped with a smart GPS unit, which allows Smart Move to track the container precisely, anywhere in North America. A Smart Move L.L.C. is now operating in the top 30 greater metro areas in the USA.

The vault is locked and shipped via Smart Move’s logistics partner, Overnite Transportation Co, a 70 year old, listed company, (NASDAQ: OVNT), and leader in the LTL industry, provides safe, secure, and timely delivery of these containers anywhere in the USA. The customer has the option of either self-loading all or a portion of their goods, or the customer can have a full service move. To move an average 2,000 sq.foot home 4 to 5 vaults would be required. The savings as compared to traditional movers prices are up to 30%.

How it works: Smart Move delivers the containers to the consumer. Once the containers are loaded, the customer places “their lock” on the container. When Smart Move picks up the full container, a security seal is also placed on the container. The containers are then moved to the new destination of the customer, across town, or across the country. For city-to-city moves, the customers’ goods are placed inside a truck trailer and sent to their new destination. The move is tracked with both barcode and GPS tracking technology. The customers’ goods are safe, never lost, and delivered with their lock and security seal in place, every time.

Customers can get a quick, accurate quote by going to the company web site www.gosmartmove.com. ; Smart Move has the ability to give a binding moving quote up front with a guarantee that the price will not fluctuate unlike traditional moving companies whose price is based on weight and can only give best guess estimates.

Chris Sapyta, company president, states that, “Smart Move provides an innovative solution to an old industry, with GPS tracked and locked containers, and service to all major metro and surrounding areas”. “Smart Move is less expensive than traditional movers with more time flexibility”. “People can actually take their time loading and unloading household goods at their convenience and store them at the origin or destination.” Sapyta adds, “What a comfort to not have to move your entire house in a couple of days, our customers control their own move”.

Smart Move is the first moving company to give the customer control of their own move.

A Smart Move L.L.C. was formed in October 2004. The finance transaction was completed by Denver based investment banking firm, Bathgate Capital Partners LLC. Bathgate raised in excess of $3.7 million dollars in seed capital to fund Smart Move. Many local investment bankers participated in this venture and are soon planning another round of financing to continue to help Smart Move meet its goal of being operational in 65 cities across the USA before the end of the year.

Family Business Profiles Features Positive and Inspiring Family Business Success Stories

Family Business Profiles is a new feature on the web site of Family Business Experts offering a brief sketch of successful family businesses.

(PRWEB) June 6, 2021 -- Atlanta-based Family Business Institute and their web based organization, Family Business Experts, announced they have launched a new initiative - Family Business Profiles.

Family Business Profiles features positive and inspiring stories about successful family businesses.

Family Business Institute founder, Don Schwerzler, reports that Family Business Profiles has received highly favorable responses from family businesses.

"Our new Family Business Profiles section was inspired partly because you can rarely pick up a newspaper or business magazine without reading another “gloom and doom” article about family-owned businesses. The media loves to publish stories about family businesses that are self-destructing and family relationships that have run amok. The juicier the better, it seems." said Schwerzler.

"After we read these stories, we wonder how families can get themselves into such difficult and sometimes irreversible circumstances. Then we take a deep breath and try to convince ourselves that nothing like that will ever happen to our family business. But it’s too late. The seed has been planted, and we are discouraged by the stories of failure."

On the other hand, success stories are likely to generate a much more positive response. Stories about families that have weathered storms and prospered can give us inspiration, encouragement and insight into our own situations. Family businesses have always been quick to seize a new idea or concept and adapt it for their own.

"With that in mind, we have decided to add a new feature to our web site and e-zine, Understanding Family Business. Here are the stories of real family businesses whose experiences will provide readers with insights and examples of some of the family business strategies that worked for them" said David Jones, principal and Internet consultant with the Family Business Institute.

Schwerzler indicated that family-owned businesses who would like to be considered as a candidate for the Family Business Profiles can fill out a simple questionnaire on their web site and that will start the process. The questionnaire can be accessed at http"//www.family-business-experts.com/family-business-profiles.html

"If you are a family-owned business and would like your story profiled in Understanding Family Business, please let us know by using our Family Business Profile Questionnaire contact form. Your family business profile may be an inspiration to other family businesses, and the free publicity could also be helpful to your business" said Schwerzler.

If you are a professional service provider and would like to nominate one of your client's as a candidate for Family Business Profiles, let us know using the same Family Business Profile Questionnaire and we will be happy to recognize their success.

Maddocks Systems Inc., a leading supplier of transportation software solutions and the developers of TruckMate for Windows (TM4Win), has been deployed as the new transportation management solution (TMS) provider for Finning (Canada). The Maddocks solution has been rolled out across 35 Western Canada branch divisions of Finning (Canada) to provide an increased level of visibility of the organizations complete transportation requirements.

(PRWEB) June 2, 2021 -- Maddocks Systems Inc., a leading supplier of transportation software solutions and the developers of TruckMate for Windows (TM4Win), has been deployed as the new transportation management solution (TMS) provider for Finning (Canada). The Maddocks solution has been rolled out across 35 Western Canada branch divisions of Finning (Canada) to provide an increased level of visibility of the organizations complete transportation requirements.

”Before introducing the Maddocks solution we had limited visibility of our day-to-day transportation activities and shipping costs,” explained Ernie Daniels Assistant Transportation Manager of Finning (Canada). “We now have an accurate snap shot of inbound and outbound movements across all branch locations which has helped increase efficiency.”

With annual transportation costs of approximately $40 Million per year it was important for Finning (Canada) to introduce a TMS package that would help lower costs and had the flexibility to fit their unique operation. The Maddocks software is used to manage equipment movements, plan the shipment of individual parts and organize inbound-outbound shipments from warehouse locations.

“One of the largest ROI’s we have identified is the ability for our sales team to quickly provide accurate shipment options to customers based on delivery requirements,” added Daniels. “By seamlessly referencing 450 rate sheets the customer is ensured the lowest cost for the service level required.”

Other specific benefits of the new system for Finning (Canada) branch locations will be attained through web enabled online features including: shipment and pick up requests, bill of lading generation, track and trace capability, invoice viewing, rate quoting and inbound/outbound shipment details.

Finning (Canada) is the Caterpillar dealer for Western Canada, serving Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon and the Northwest Territories.

GTES Inc. Announces the Availability of its SHERLOC Location Service Application.

GTES Inc. announces the availability of SHERLOC Location Services. SHERLOC is a web-based service allowing customers to locate and track their goods in transit, field service or delivery fleets, and other mobile assets.

(PRWEB) June 2, 2021 -- GTES announces today that its new location service offering SHERLOC is ready to begin pilot testing with select customers.

SHERLOC is a web-based service that tracks the location of specialized wireless devices produced by a number of manufacturers. The system makes use of the latest advances in mapping services and wireless location, and combines these technologies with an intelligent business-oriented application that is simple to manage and yet scales to meet the needs of customers from SMB to enterprise. The approach of being both device and wireless carrier agnostic is unique in the industry. “In the research that we did prior to launching this project we saw that most location services providers were dedicated to one type of device and wireless network “ stated GTES President, Russ Allen. “GTES is committed to supporting the most up to date wireless data services and location enabled products, so as to enable agents and resellers to tailor a solution specific to their client’s needs”. According to Frost and Sullivan Location Services will be a 4-5 billion dollar industry by the year 2010, as outlined in more detail on our website http://www.SHERLOCgps.com.

GTES believes that technology has advanced to the point where location services have become a cost-effective and powerful tool suitable for large and small businesses, even when operating in dense urban environments where traditional location technologies have been unreliable. “We see the ability to use a small battery-powered pager-sized device will be an enormous boon to businesses who need to efficiently manage their mobile assets or track their high-value shipments”, said Gunnar Jonsson VP and General Manger.

With over 30 years of experience at providing carrier-grade solutions to the wireless industry, GTES is able to offer our customers the support they will need to integrate location-based intelligence into their business. GTES is working with a several leading device and wireless partners to enable this new and exciting business opportunity.

The latest generation of wireless location devices employ a technology that allow them to operate with internal antennas, and they don’t require a clear view of the sky to provide an accurate fix. “Thanks to the E911 mandate by the federal government in the US, improvements in GPS based location performance have been dramatic,” said Peter Carr, Vice President of engineering for the company.

For more information on SHERLOC please contact Brooks Marsden, VP of Sales, at 770 754 1666 or refer to our website at http://www.SHERLOCgps.com.

Historic Warship USS LST-325 Making Three Ports of Call in Massachusetts

This decorated veteran of the D-Day and Italian invasions is making three ports of call in Massachusetts in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II. She will escort the USS Constitution on a harbor turnaround and will be open to the public for tours.

Buzzard’s Bay, MA (PRWEB) June 1, 2021 -- USS LST-325, a World War Two amphibious vessel known as a “Landing Ship, Tank,” will pull into port Friday evening at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy as part of its East Coast Celebration Tour. The ship will later join the USS Constitution and the WWII destroyer USS Cassin Young (DD-793) at the Charlestown Navy Yard in Boston on June 8, followed by a final stop at Gloucester, Mass. on June 20. She recently spent the Memorial Day weekend at Alexandria, Va., attracting many visitors.

This proud veteran warship participated in the invasions of Sicily and Salerno, and made 44 round-trips between England and Normandy during the D-Day invasion, earning two battle stars during her World War Two service.

The ship attracted national attention in January 2001 when a crew of 28 veterans, whose average age was 72 years old, brought her home to the U.S. from Greece. They braved a 6,500-mile voyage through the wintertime Mediterranean and the North Atlantic to bring the ship, built in 1942, home to the U.S. as a memorial.

Public tours will be conducted each day while in port, except when involved in special events. Hours are from 9:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., and the admission is $10.00 for visitors 18 and older, $5.00 for children over five and a special family rate of $20.00.

The planned events include a harbor turnaround with the USS Constitution on June 11 and participation in the Department of Defense Tribute to World War II Veterans on June 18.

The ship and crew’s mission is to increase public awareness of the role and history of the LST in World War II, Korea and Viet Nam, as well as to provide a memorial to those that sailed, fought and died on them. The 328-foot vessels were designed specifically to land directly on enemy shores with mission-ready tanks, troops and supplies, which were unloaded through hinged doors and a ramp at the bow of the ship. Up to twenty Sherman tanks could be carried, along with many tons of other vehicles, supplies and equipment.

The current crewmembers hail from 23 states, most of them being U.S. Navy veterans who served on our country’s LST’s at various times since 1942. They are bringing this ship to several ports of call in Massachusetts, so that those of us who appreciate the service of our veterans can board and explore the only operational LST museum ship in existence. Winston Churchill referred to them as the ships that won the war.

Not all of the crewmembers are veterans. A few of them are serving in memory of their fathers who sailed on LST’s. They have learned the skills of their fathers from willing tutors who enjoy sharing with the younger generation, in the hope that they will keep alive the memory of these ships and the crews who sailed them.

Further information is available on the ship’s website at www.LSTMemorial.org. (The ship’s itinerary can be found on the “Voyage 2005 Information” page.) USS LST-325 is owned and operated by The USS LST Ship Memorial, Inc., a non-profit corporation.
