  • JTS technology integrates with customers' enterprise systems.

Johanson Transportation Service, a third-party supply chain solutions provider, has launched FreightOptixx, the company’s cloud-based transportation management system (TMS).

The system is available as a value-added service and on a per transaction fee schedule to select customers, enabling them to leverage JTS technology innovations that integrate with their own enterprise systems without the need for investing in a TMS of their own.

FreightOptixx gives users access to every detail in their supply chain data, all in one online location, with complete visibility to all their freight communications from start to finish. JTS customers can increase their service levels to their own customers, and it saves them time on manual logistics tasks.

For users shipping truckload, less-than-truckload, rail intermodal, and international freight, FreightOptixx empowers users to easily track their shipments, request instant spot rate quotes from multiple carriers displayed on one screen for comparison, optimize freight orders, create and view all shipping documents, consolidate their shipments using the lowest cost optimizer tool, send pick-up instructions to the carrier electronically, view invoices and accounts payable status and run analytics reports for on-time delivery, freight cost reconciliation, exceptions, and freight class.

“FreightOptixx illustrates our commitment to providing the highest level of service and most innovative technology possible to our shipper and carrier customers,” said president and CEO Larry Johanson. “The technology makes their logistics operations more efficient by enabling total data visibility immediately from their desktop or mobile devices so they can quickly get information when and where they need it.”

“Our team will continue to provide the solutions our customers need,” added Dave Hiersche, JTS’s vice president of technology, “to achieve the visibility and operational and cost controls that will create effective supply chains.”

JTS is a third-party solutions provider, licensed property broker, licensed ocean freight forwarder, and NVOCC. The company is headquartered in Fresno, CA and has five regional offices in Roseville, California; Salem, Oregon; Tigard, Oregon; Madison, Wisconsin; and, Denville, New Jersey.
