10-4 Systems announced plans for a strategic partnership with project44. By integrating project44’s network of Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) APIs into 10-4’s Freight Portal, 10-4 customers will now have access to synchronous and real-time LTL shipment data directly within their current user interface, according to the company.
“10-4’s mission from the start has been to leverage an easy-to-use interface to connect carriers, shippers, and brokers in real-time, with up-to-date, dynamic data,” said 10-4 CEO Travis Rhyan. “project44’s network is the most comprehensive API platform in the industry, and will enable us to deliver unprecedented levels of end-to-end visibility and flexibility to our fast-growing customer base.”
During its launch phase, project44 said it focused on reaching critical mass in the $37B LTL sector and captured API connections to 99% of the domestic market. “Unlike the typical point-to-point integration models in freight transportation, this partnership provides 10-4’s customers immediate and complete access to that entire network of carriers for rating, transit time, dispatch, tracking and image retrieval transactions,” the company noted.
“Our goal is to enable a new level of real-time connectivity and proactive transportation management on a multimodal and global scale,” commented project44 President Tommy Barnes. “This partnership with 10-4 is a key part of that strategy, creating an even more extensive ecosystem of shared API connectivity.”
This integration of project44’s LTL API network into 10-4 Systems is set for late 2016.
