REDPRAIRIE Corporation , the world's leading consumer driven optimisation company, has announced that Pittsburgh Logistics Systems, Inc. (PLS), a leading third party logistics provider to the metals, lumber and building materials industry, has selected RedPrairie's DLx Transportation Management Solution (TMS) for enhancing order and shipment optimisation.
The solutions will enable PLS to provide the next generation of technology-enabled third-party transportation management services to its clients.
Since 1991, PLS has been providing third-party logistics management solutions that combine superior technologies, processes and personnel.
PLS will utilise RedPrairie's TMS optimisation and workflow and event management tools to enhance its current transportation management system, eflatbed.com.
Robert J. Dunn, President of Pittsburgh Logistics Systems, Inc, explains that PLS's success has been based on providing its clients access to the best supply chain and transportation management technologies in the market.
After months of evaluation, PLS recognised that RedPrairie's TMS tools, specifically the COPLEX optimisation engine, were superior to other tools available.
Once implemented, PLS says it will enhance its technology to provide automated order and load optimisation, continuous move and route optimisation, customised event management triggers and a customisable work-flow.
The combination of eflatbed.com and RedPrairie will elevate PLS's technology platform to the pinnacle of planning and shipment execution solutions in the marketplace.
Dunn chose RedPrairie as PLS’s supply chain technology partner because of the superior functionality of its optimisation tools, capacity to deploy in a modular fashion and its flexibility to meet the constantly changing business requirements of its clients.
John Jazwiec, RedPrairie Company Leader, believes Pittsburgh Logistics is a technology pacesetter and 3PL leader to the metal and building supply industries. It has spent over fifteen years fine-tuning its technology and processes to meet the transportation needs of clients.
Jazwiec expresses his gratitude that PLS chose to partner with RedPrairie to enhance their TMS offerings and RedPrairie looks forward to helping it attain the next level of its success.
