The 3G-TM software is managing the following key functions for Flagship Logistics Group:

  • Margin calculation
  • Document imaging

3G-TM transportation execution software, launched on February 24, 2014, helps transportation managers make better decisions, harness new opportunities, save costs, streamline processes and address the daily challenges of transportation planning and execution. Built on a single platform, the software seamlessly manages the full transportation lifecycle including: rating, routing (including multi-stop and pool distribution optimization), tendering, tracking, tracing and settlement in a single system. Companies can license the full suite for maximum value or individual modules to augment existing systems.

We look forward to exploring all of the nw functionality that 3G-TM will bring to the operations center in Indianapolis and our other branch locations."
