AscendTMS And Kleinschmidt Partner, Making Digital Freight Management Immediately Accessible To All
Over 20,000 existing shippers, brokers, 3PL's and carriers now have the ability to conduct full Digital Freight Management (DFM) when using AscendTMS and the Kleinschmidt network
Tim Higham, president and CEO of AscendTMS, said, "Prior to this partnership between AscendTMS and Kleinschmidt, DFM was the elusive holy grail that nobody could get their arms around – until now. Kleinschmidt provides and manages one of the world's largest networks of logistics EDI connectivity between trading partners. Since 1893 they've built a reputation second to none and amassed EDI connectivity for over 20,000 leading shippers, brokers, 3PL's, and asset-based carriers. Our partnership with Kleinschmidt means that AscendTMS customers will be instantly connected to this immense EDI supply chain network in order to open up DFM opportunities for electronic load tendering, real time load updating, and final invoice presentment – and it's accessible to everybody."
Kleinschmidt CEO, Dan Heinen, stated "Our partnership with AscendTMS will be beneficial to companies across the industry. The goal is to provide industry professionals with easy access to the advantages of digital freight management and all the efficiencies it brings to each party. Shippers, brokers, and 3PL's will be able to bring their entire supply chains into digital compliance almost overnight, and brokers and carriers will be able to electronically access tens of thousands of DFM-ready shippers and brokers through AscendTMS in order to access more freight. Kleinschmidt believes that the future of freight management will soon be totally digital, and we are leading the industry forward by partnering with companies like AscendTMS to get the market there in short order."
