Odyssey Introduces WIN, a Free Cloud-Based
Transportation Management System
 

Carrier-neutral solution solves capacity challenges at lower cost

DANBURY, Conn. (September 24, 2015) – Odyssey Logistics & Technology Corporation (Odyssey) announced today the introduction of WIN™ (Web Integrated Network), a free cloud-based transportation management solution offering shippers an efficient, single-source system to make logistics and transportation management easier, faster and more cost effective.

WIN’s open market model supports truckload (TL), less than truckload (LTL), intermodal and bulk transportation options while providing the automation of a transportation management system.  Shippers can continue using their existing carriers while gaining access to additional capacity through the nearly $2 billion network of WIN/Odyssey carriers and brokers, and the spot market. The result is productivity improvements, real time metrics and savings. The system even accommodates special handling requirements.

“We’re offering a powerful transportation management solution for free,” said Bob Shellman, president and chief executive officer, Odyssey Logistics & Technology Corporation. “This distinguishes Odyssey from other providers who charge expensive fees for this kind of service. With WIN, one of the key benefits is that clients can keep their existing carriers or access a wider system of carriers through the WIN network and the spot market. There’s no need to discontinue relationships with existing partners and carriers.”

As a carrier-neutral service, WIN enables clients to have complete control and visibility over their logistics as well as the ability to select among the best rates for shipping with their own carriers, WIN carriers and brokers, and the spot market. WIN can increase productivity and save time through the automation of carrier selection, spot quotes, load tendering, tracking and tracing, reporting and carrier performance evaluation. As a web-based system, clients can be operational in a matter of days and are supported by a dedicated WIN client services team.

Shellman added that WIN is not a traditional Transportation Management System (TMS). “WIN is much more than a typical TMS. We’ve developed an easy-to-use toolset that provides all of the essential features needed to simplify and optimize daily transportation management activities plus provide additional capacity. WIN clients benefit from a leading-edge technology that has been developed and refined for more than a decade.”

Key benefits of WIN include:

  • Access to additional capacity
  • Lower freight costs
  • Single source for transportation management
  • Optimum rate selection
  • In-transit track and trace
  • Rating and tendering
  • Network visibility

WIN easily integrates with legacy, financial, ERP, CRM and WMS systems through Jitterbit®, an agile cloud integration solution that seamlessly connects existing systems with WIN. To learn more about WIN and schedule a free demonstration, please visit gowithwin.com or call 855-946-4739.
