ODW Logistics Selects 3Gtms to Provide Single Platform TMS Planning & Execution

3Gtms, Inc., a software company that is simplifying complex transportation management for shippers, 3PLs and brokers, today announced that 3G-TM, the company’s transportation management system (TMS) has been selected by ODW Logistics, Inc., a premier third-party supply chain solutions provider specializing in integrated logistics solutions.

ODW chose 3Gtms as its TMS vendor of choice for several reasons, including:

  • 3G-TM is a single platform TMS which uses a single application, user interface and database to simplify daily operations, as well as implementation and training. This provides improved efficiency and cost reductions through better decision-making.
  • Comprehensive rating capabilities which provide extensive tools for carrier negotiations and flexibility in customer pricing.
  • Planning and execution algorithm for load optimization which allows real-time reaction to continual changes in customer orders and shipments, and review for shipment cost savings.

“Our team is very familiar with the myriad of TMS options that are available, and we know the difference between choosing one with lots of buttons vs. one that brings differentiating capabilities to our customer offering. When we saw the single platform architecture and how it simplifies the entire planning and execution process, while improving the overall quality of load building and system maintenance, it was immediately clear that 3Gtms has developed something completely new for the market,” said Bill Grannis, Director of Information Technology, ODW Logistics, Inc. “ODW has always been a market-leading organization, we strive to offer our customers new and elevated levels of service. The 3Gtms solution was a perfect fit for us, not just for the platform but also for how we want to deliver for our customers.”

“ODW is extremely knowledgeable about logistics and logistics technology,” said Mitch Weseley, founder and CEO of 3Gtms. “They have the experience and understanding to recognize the benefits of our single platform architecture and how it can be a differentiator in their business offering. Leading 3PLs, like ODW, see that we have delivered an exceptional solution that uses the best of today’s technology in a package that is easy to use, affordable and fast to implement.”

3Gtms developed its TMS on a single platform to significantly reduce the complexity and number of steps that transportation managers use for planning, executing and managing their shipments. 3G-TM allows users to create detailed load plans in a few simple clicks vs. using multiple applications that are more complicated and time consuming.

In many cases TMS products consist of multiple applications offered by the same company with integration to make them work together. Our system is the only TMS for the mid-market that was built as a single product, with an embedded database and algorithm that can manage the full transportation lifecycle.

ODW is an active member of 3Gtms’ Customer Innovation Partner Program helping to guide the company’s software development efforts.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable? Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, will answer these questions and demonstrate techniques for implementing advanced scheduling.

The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
