Trade Tech Makes List of Top 100 Logistics IT Providers Second Year in a Row

BELLEVUE, Wash., April 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trade Tech, a global supplier of cloud-based solutions for the logistics industry, has been recognized by Inbound Logistics magazine as a Top 100 Logistics IT Provider for the second year in a row. Trade Tech was selected for providing best-in-class logistics IT solutions to help NVOCCs (non-vessel operating common carriers) and freight forwarders improve their supply chain performance and differentiate their service offering.

Every April, Inbound Logistics editors recognize 100 logistics IT companies that support and enable logistics excellence. Drawn from a pool of more than 300 companies, using questionnaires, phone calls, personal interviews, and other research, Inbound Logistics selects the Top 100 Logistics IT Providers who are leading the way in 2013. Editors seek to match readers' fast-changing needs to the capabilities of those companies selected. All companies selected reflect leadership by answering Inbound Logistics readers' needs for simplicity, ROI, and efficient implementation.

According to Felecia Stratton, Inbound Logistics' editor, implementing the best logistics technology helps large companies expand markets and small companies level the playing field with larger competitors. "Best-in-class logistics IT also helps today's business logistics managers boost supply chain performance and customer service while cutting overall logistics costs. Inbound Logistics editors selected Trade Tech for its consistent ability to deliver innovative solutions empowering logistics and supply chain excellence for companies large and small."

"Many of the companies we work with are small to mid-sized and they are looking to differentiate themselves right now through IT," says Bryn Heimbeck, Trade Tech's president. "In fact, one of our 'micro-multinational' NVOCCs, as they refer to themselves, recently commented that using Trade Tech's software allows them to compete with much larger companies by offering superior information technology from a single global platform. This is why we are passionate about developing new cloud-based solutions and tools to help the smaller guys survive because it knows no geography, and geography is the greatest impediment to selling in a global world."

Stratton also noted, "Top 100 Logistics IT Providers such as Trade Tech help customers navigate the complexities of global trade and expansion. Trade Tech provides the technology solutions Inbound Logistics readers need to successfully manage their global enterprises, and Inbound Logistics is proud to honor Trade Tech for innovative solutions empowering global logistics and supply chain excellence."

"We are thrilled to make Inbound Logistics' Top 100 Logistics IT Provider list for the second year in a row," says Heimbeck. "We have recently been recognized globally for our new AMS application, which is at the core of our security compliance solution for Japan as it joins the USA, Canada, Mexico, and the European Union in requiring 24 hour advanced manifest information. Our customers have communicated back to us that our solution is lightening fast and helps them optimize the cost benefit of filing a master bill coupled with centralizing documentation production. This is one example of where we are looking to go with technology now and in the years ahead – we believe there are many opportunities to create Expertise on Demand with information at the user's fingertips for a faster and more empowered supply chain."
