Progressive Tech Companies Bring Deeper Visibility and Actionable Data to LTL Operations
CHICAGO, IL – October 26, 2016. 10-4 Systems, a Boulder-based technology startup providing real-time visibility into supply chains, announced plans for a strategic partnership with project44, a Chicago-based technology company empowering industry-leading supply chain connectivity. By integrating project44’s one-to-many network of Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) APIs into 10-4’s Freight Portal, 10-4 customers will now have access to synchronous and real-time LTL shipment data directly within their current user interface.
With strong domain experience and best-in-class cloud application architects, both 10-4 and project44’s SaaS products have experienced dramatic growth and widespread market acceptance. This growth represents a new age of scalable transportation technologies intended to propel large-scale network connectivity.
“10-4’s mission from the start has been to leverage an easy-to-use interface to connect carriers, shippers, and brokers in real-time, with up-to-date, dynamic data,” said 10-4 CEO, Travis Rhyan. “project44’s network is the most comprehensive API platform in the industry, and will enable us to deliver unprecedented levels of end-to-end visibility and flexibility to our fast-growing customer base.”
During their launch phase, project44 focused on reaching critical mass in the $37B LTL sector and captured API connections to 99% of the domestic market. Unlike the typical point-to-point integration models in freight transportation, this partnership provides 10-4’s customers immediate and complete access to that entire network of carriers for rating, transit time, dispatch, tracking and image retrieval transactions.
“Our goal is to enable a new level of real-time connectivity and proactive transportation management on a multimodal and global scale,” commented project44 President, Tommy Barnes. “This partnership with 10-4 is a key part of that strategy, creating an even more extensive ecosystem of shared API connectivity.”
This integration of project44’s LTL API network into 10-4 Systems, Inc. is set for late 2016.
