PITTSBURGH Logistics Systems Inc. (PLS), a 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 use RedPrairie's TMS optimisation, workflow and event management tools to enhance its current transportation management system, eflatbed.com.
PLS's success has been based on providing their clients access to the best supply chain and transportation management technologies in the market says PLS.
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 will enhance their 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, says PLS.
PLS says they chose RedPrairie as their 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 their clients.
PLS is a technology pacesetter and 3PL leader to the metal and building supply industries, says RedPrairie. PLS has spent over fifteen years fine-tuning their technology and processes to meet the transportation needs of their clients.
RedPrairie is glad PLS chose to partner with them to enhance their TMS offerings.
RedPrairie looks forward to helping PLS attain the next level of their success.
