Transervice Launches Tech-Based Freight Management Business

Transportation provider Transervice Logistics Inc. said it has launched a technology-based freight management business, Transervice Integrated Solutions.

TIS, based in Los Angeles, will use its technology to fulfill backhauls and provide freight management and brokerage services.

Transervice said it formed TIS through its acquisition of Logistadvise Inc., which provided the company with a proprietary software platform that emphasizes automation, efficiency and cost savings when executing shipments.

The technology platform consists of a transportation management system, a freight marketplace, load tracking, freight and capacity data analytics, business intelligence and reporting.

The TIS platform is EDI and API ready and can integrate with existing industry software, the company said.
