SMC³ Grows Transactions and Adoptions Despite Reported Freight Tech Headwinds

150% YOY growth in transaction activity with APIs as growth engine

ATLANTA – Oct. 2, 2023 – SMC³ announced that it is experiencing increased shipper and 3PL adoption of its industry-leading technology solutions. SMC³ sees especially strong freight technology growth in API services amid reports of industry headwinds.

“Shippers and logistics technology providers have shown tremendous interest in the industry movement towards digitalization,” said SMC³’s Chief Commercial Officer Brian Thompson. “We have had a surge in API transactions flowing through SMC³’s proprietary system – 150% growth compared to this time last year – despite reported fluctuating freight tech industry conditions.”

SMC³ attributes its industry-defying growth to its application programming interface (API) services along with its forward-thinking strategy and focus on customer experience. As more transportation management systems (TMSs) and technology platforms make API services available to their clients, SMC³ continues to prevail by focusing on delivering best-in-class less-than-truckload (LTL) APIs that digitize the shipment cycle from quote through delivery.

“Shippers and Logistics Service Providers have a tremendous interest in digitally connecting with their provider, but they often require a partner that specializes in LTL data and technology to successfully make this transition. That is where SMC³ excels,” said Thompson.

SMC³ contends that providers offering advanced technology products with solid and proven business strategies can remain in the freight tech industry for the long haul. For nearly 90 years, SMC³ has advanced the industry forward to provide a frictionless world for the movement of LTL freight. SMC³ is also one of the founding members and a proud supporter of the Digital LTL Council – comprised of carriers, logistics service providers, shippers, and technology providers – that strives to elevate the LTL industry.
