TMW Systems has bought Appian Logistics Software, a privately-held company with offices in Oklahoma City. Terms of the transaction, announced yesterday, were not made public.

With Appian products, TMW expands its existing offerings for freight network design, lane and bid analysis and load optimization solutions with the addition of logistics planning and transportation management for 3PLs, dedicated logistics operators, courier services and private fleets operating in retail, food & beverage distribution and restaurant supply markets, among others. Current Appian customers gain direct access to integrated enterprise transportation management solutions and a range of complementary applications, from business intelligence to asset maintenance, under TMW Systems.

“TMW can now offer industry-leading, last-mile routing and scheduling optimization solutions for dedicated and private fleets with Appian’s Direct Route software and complementary applications,” said David Wangler, president and CEO of TMW Systems. “We are proud and pleased to welcome the Appian organization and their well-respected products to the TMW portfolio.

“We already serve many customers jointly with Appian and together we work with at least 21 of the top 25 dedicated carriers in the United States,” he added. “As with our previous acquisitions, we will continue to develop, support and sell the entire Appian product line to protect our customers’ technology investments.”

“Customers continue to invest in Appian software and recommend it frequently to others because we deliver unmatched value and performance in logistics operational efficiency,” said Mike Kositzky, president of Appian. “With TMW Systems, we’ve found a business that places the same high priority that we do on developing innovative solutions targeting improved productivity, superior customer service and long-term profitability for their customers.”
