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.
