Transportation software provider TMW Systems is forming a strategic alliance with KSM Transport Advisors to jointly offer beefed up business consulting services to motor carriers, with a focus on freight networks, financial management, operational metrics and business strategies.
“Smart carriers know that a successful freight strategy is key to their profitability and I’ve found [TMW’s] IDSC Netwise to offer one of the most mathematically sophisticated freight optimization models for creating and executing the right strategy,” said David Roush, KSM vp. “If carriers optimize their top line, they maximize their opportunity to make a profit.”
The new relationship with KSM is part of the ongoing program at TMW to partner with firms that offer strongly complementary services and products of proven value to segments of its more than 1,800 customers, which include private and for-hire trucking, brokers and 3PLs, as well as fleets in construction, ready-mix concrete, municipal service and waste management operations.
These strategic relationships provide a depth of expertise and business perspective, TMW said, informed by technology platform knowledge, that increases the value and potential return on investment for new customers of those products and services while reducing buyer risk, project complexity and ramp-up time.
