SMC³ Signs Top 3PL GlobalTranz as Next-Generation CarrierConnect® Customer
Peachtree City, GA – SMC³ announces that GlobalTranz is the first logistics service provider to integrate the full gamut of enhancements from SMC³’s industry-leading carrier transit and service data product, CarrierConnect® XL 2.0, into its proprietary transportation management system.
With CarrierConnect® XL 2.0, GlobalTranz now offers its customers the ability to receive carrier transit results by estimated calendar date; previously, customers could only see operating times in a simple transit-day format. Its customers also have access to carrier terminal operations schedules and contact information, three years of rolling historical data, and the complete portfolio of services and transit times for more than 300 carriers.
“We are thrilled to announce the integration of SMC³’s CarrierConnect® XL 2.0 into our flagship freight management offering, CarrierRate 2.0. We continue to strive to provide the most comprehensive and complete technology platforms in the industry,” states Chris Scheid, Vice President of Pricing for GlobalTranz. “With end-user capability a top priority, this cooperative effort allows GlobalTranz to continue to lead the way and partner with industry-leading data providers. We are honored to be the first 3PL to bring these new features to market.”
Jack Middleton, CEO of SMC³, said GlobalTranz is helping further establish CarrierConnect® XL 2.0 as a must-have industry product.
“We are very excited to have GlobalTranz demonstrating the valuable enhancements we’ve incorporated into version 2.0 of CarrierConnect® XL. With this new version of the software, we’ve focused on creating the most accurate, all-inclusive transit-time tool in the market, and it’s rewarding to see an industry-leading 3PL like GlobalTranz embrace CarrierConnect® XL,” he said. “The new features allow GlobalTranz customers to react quickly to changes in carrier operations, allowing them to optimize transportation planning.”
