Tampa, FL, May 24, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Packard Logistics of Channahon, Ill., has implemented TRANSFLO $Velocity® from Pegasus TransTech to strengthen carrier relationships and improve customer service. TRANSFLO $Velocity provides a consistent, electronic way for carriers to submit invoices and load documents to participating third party logistics (3PL) providers and freight brokers to speed processing and payment.
Packard Logistics, founded in 1994, is a broker that specializes in flatbed and specialty haul for Fortune 500 companies and the U.S. Department of Defense. The company also handles some dry van freight.
According to Vice President April Koltes, Packard Logistics moves approximately 1,500 loads a month from its headquarters in Channahon. The company's business operations are certified by ISO, the International Organization for Standards. Owned by transportation veteran Melodee Easton, Packard Logistics is also a certified woman-owned business and active with the Women in Trucking organization.
Packard is always looking for ways to improve customer service and efficiency, Koltes said. "We brought in $Velocity so we could receive the carriers' paperwork faster and we can pay them faster," she noted.
TRANSFLO $Velocity makes it easy for carriers to group the documents and load information a broker requires and electronically transmit them together with an invoice. TRANSFLO $Velocity reduces processing time, allowing 3PLs and brokers to bill their shippers faster and pay carriers more quickly. TRANSFLO Mobile is another convenient option offered to Packard Logistics carriers. TRANSFLO Mobile requires only a smartphone, either an Android or iPhone, to send the documents and invoice.
Freight brokers, like Packard Logistics, gain efficiency with TRANSFLO $Velocity, since it is an easy and consistent electronic method of receiving and processing invoices and load documents. The software is free for carriers and can be downloaded at www.transflovelocity.com.
"It works out really well for us," Koltes said. "We're able to bill our customers faster and get a faster turnaround for better cash flow."
TRANSFLO $Velocity is the preferred method of document and invoice delivery for the top 3PLs and freight brokers in the nation, including Access America, FedEx Truckload Brokerage, JB Hunt, and Allen Lund. More than 10,000 carriers currently use TRANSFLO $Velocity.
“We're very pleased to have Packard Logistics as a customer," said Bob Helms, chairman and CEO of Pegasus TransTech. "We're always glad to have well run companies like Packard recognize and take advantage of the increased efficiency TRANSFLO $Velocity provides.”
