England Logistics, a worldwide third-party logistics (3PL) provider, has enhanced its technology portfolio with McLeod Software’s Freight Management Solutions (FMS) application. As a software system for freight procurement, transportation management software (TMS), and spot market applications, McLeod FMS offers England Logistics a strategic advantage in the transportation industry’s capacity-driven environment.
“With the large volume of freight that flows through our network, our utilization of the McLeod FMS bid platform will allow us to further extend our reach for available capacity and strengthen the relationships we have with our carriers,” said Michelle Potter, director of strategic development at England Logistics. “Through this application, we are able to leverage England Logistics’ size and breadth of services, by securing long-term commitments, thus minimizing some of the price and capacity volatility that is common in our industry. This is something that both our customers and carriers stand to benefit from.”
The decision to invest in McLeod’s FMS product was supported by the recent implementation and positive results attained from McLeod’s PowerBroker software. It is England Logistics’ latest improvement in a long line of technology enhancements that include the purchase of IES Ltd freight forwarding software and the acquisition of freight management software company, TMS Technologies LLC.
