Tampa, FL, June 28, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- LMTS, a full-service broker and third-party logistics provider, has implemented TRANSFLO Express® truck stop scanning and TRANSFLO $Velocity® from Pegasus TransTech to transmit critical transportation documents electronically between carriers, freight brokers, and third-party logistics(3PL) providers.
Using TRANSFLO Express, drivers visit any of the more than 850 participating truck stops, and hand delivery documents to a trained cashier for scanning. In seconds, these documents are delivered electronically to a carrier or freight broker’s corporate office for immediate billing and payroll processing. TRANSFLO Express speeds paperwork, reducing days-sales-outstanding and increasing cash flow.
TRANSFLO $Velocity offers freight brokers an easy, consistent method of receiving and processing invoices and load documents from carriers. A carrier simply downloads a free piece of software from www.transflovelocity.com. The software enables a carrier to capture and transmit documents and data electronically in a single transaction. TRANSFLO $Velocity saves time, saves money, and increases operating efficiencies for both parties.
LMTS is based in Raleigh, N.C. with offices in Arizona, California, Florida, and South Carolina. The company dates back to 1977 when it incorporated as L&M Transportation Services to broker loads of produce on the East Coast.
“Produce is still about 70% of our volume, but we do dry freight, LTL, and third-party logistics as well,” said Doug Stoiber, vice president of produce operations.
LMTS and sister company LMTS Plus offer a complete menu of 3PL services, including truckload consolidation. The 46 employees of LMTS will manage $100 million in business this year, Stoiber explained. The company adopted TRANSFLO Express and TRANSFLO $Velocity during a recent period of strategic planning.
“One of the challenges we gave ourselves was finding a way to become more valuable for our carriers by getting them their money faster, so TRANSFLO Express and TRANSFLO $Velocity were a good fit for us,” Stoiber said.
In fact, LMTS has posted a page on its website to tell carriers of the benefits they’ll derive from TRANSFLO Express and TRANSFLO $Velocity (www.lmts.com/carriers/transflo). LMTS offers both of these scanning solutions to carriers at no charge.
“We even designated one of our dispatchers as ‘Mr. TRANSFLO,’” Stoiber noted. “If a carrier has a question about how TRANSFLO Express or TRANSFLO $Velocity works, we have a Mr. TRANSFLO phone extension. We can send him right to Mr. TRANSFLO at extension 4739.”
Mr. TRANSFLO’s real name is Kris Carter, Stoiber added.
Stoiber said that TRANSFLO Express and TRANSFLO $Velocity are working out well for the carriers who understand the benefits of using them. “We challenge each one of our dispatchers when he dispatches a load to make sure the carrier knows how TRANSFLO works, how easy it is, what the carrier’s options are as far as from truck stops, from their PCs, or from their home offices,” Stoiber said.
“We’re very pleased that LMTS and its carriers are beginning to reap the benefits of TRANSFLO Express and $Velocity,” said Bob Helms, chairman and CEO for Pegasus TransTech. “TRANSFLO Express has been around for a decade. TRANSFLO $Velocity is a newer service specifically for freight brokers. We’re proud that a forward-looking company like LMTS has adopted both of them for more profitable operations.”
