Transportation management technology developer Logistics.com of Burlington, MA, has signed up two new carrrier customers --Estes Express Lines and Lakeville Motor Express.

Both carriers, which provide less-than-truckload and truckload service, will use Logistics.com’s OptiYield SuperSpin system for line-haul load planning to improve profitability, service and overall efficiency.

Estes, based in Richmond, VA, and Lakeville, based outside of St. Paul, MN, are both members of the ExpressLINK carrier network, which also includes G.I. Trucking and TST Overland in Canada. This network allows the member carriers to direct-load freight from their respective territories and deliver it by sleeper teams to gateway cities in other network members' territories, trimming days off transit times offered by other carriers, said Rob Estes, president of Estes.

“With OptiYield SuperSpin, we will be able to generate 'what-if' scenarios, revealing not only individual carrier, but also the ExpressLINK network-wide impact of suggested linehaul changes on costs, service and capacity,” he said. “This system will be an integral component of the network, as we strive to achieve seamless integration with the ExpressLINK network carriers and better serve our respective clients.”
