Columbus-based Software Provider Becomes First Licensed Reseller of Load & Route Optimization Solution
BLOOMFIELD, Connecticut – August 25, 2010 – Prophesy Transportation Solutions, Inc. (an Accellos division), provider of trucking and logistics software solutions to the transportation industry, today announced a new strategic partnership with BestTransport of Columbus, Ohio. The two supply chain software providers are set to develop integration between the Accellos One Optimize solution, which builds optimal routes and truckloads to maximize efficiencies, and the BestShippers TMS solution, which identifies optimal ways to ship by matching carriers and shippers from within the Best Transport network.
