Ultra Logistics is a SmartWay Partner

Ultra Logistics is pleased to announce that we have teamed up with the SmartWay® Transport Partnership to help increase energy efficiency while significantly reducing greenhouse gases and air pollution.

Did you know that truck and rail transport consumes over 35 billion gallons of diesel fuel annually in the United States? This creates over 350 million metric tons of carbon dioxide each year in addition to producing nitrogen oxide and particulate matter. While the burning of fuel is necessary, a portion of that fuel is wasted due to inefficient practices.

Launched in February 2004, the SmartWay® Transport Partnership is a voluntary collaboration between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and freight shippers, carriers, and logistics companies to reduce the amount of emissions generated yearly. By 2012, this initiative aims to reduce between 33-66 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions and up to 200,000 tons of nitrogen oxide emissions annually.

Ultra Logistics—taking the lead from large companies like Wal-mart—is doing its part by encouraging the carriers that we do business with to integrate cost saving, fuel efficient technology and strategies into their fleets. This includes cutting down on unnecessary idling, improving aerodynamics, reducing highway speed, and driver training.

Ultra Logistics to provide Intermodal services

We are happy to announce that early in 2007 we have finalized arrangements with several national intermodal carrier providers that will enhance the intermodal services that we are offering.

As fuel costs rise, capacity and truck driver shortages increase, and equipment costs climb, more and more shippers are looking at ways to save money. One way they are doing this is by partnering with third-party logistics companies to provide rail intermodal transportation services as an alternative.

According to the “U.S. Freight Transportation Forecast to 2016” rail intermodal revenue is expected to rise to $19 billion by 2016 compared with $8.6 billion in 2004.

At Ultra Logistics, we know that the surge in popularity of rail intermodal, and the benefits it provides, may have you wondering how you can take advantage of this cost-saving shipping solution.

Ultra Logistics is pleased to announce that a demonstration of our Private Carrier Network solution is now available for viewing on our website.

The demonstration explains the benefits of the solution, and provides an overview of how the software works. It features examples of how shippers can notify carriers of exception loads in real-time using its mass-tendering feature, how carriers can place bids on loads they want, and how shippers award loads based on price.

You can view the demo by going to http://www.ultralogistics.com/privatecarriernetwork.

It requires Macromedia Flash 6.0 which you can download for free from our website.

Overflow Manager is now Private Carrier Network

To better align its name with its functionality and to enhance capabilities, Ultra Logistics announces that Overflow Manager has been renamed Private Carrier Network.

Built on the same platform as our UltraShip TMS, Private Carrier Network can be used as an add-on to an existing TMS, or easily upgraded to UltraShip TMS.

By upgrading Overflow Manager to Private Carrier Network, features that were previously only available to UltraShip users are now offered. These features include:

  • Appointment scheduling
  • Tender timeouts
  • Pick up and delivery confirmations
  • More robust reporting

Private Carrier Network was developed by Ultra Logistics as a web-based, mass load tendering tool that allows shippers to send instant notification of their needs to their core carriers in a matter of minutes. Carriers are simultaneously notified of shippers’ needs via an email message that prompts them to log in where they can submit competitive bids on the loads they can cover. All shippers have to do is view the bids as they come in and make their carrier selection using the best combination of rate and availability.

For more information on Private Carrier Network, please contact Russ Bowen at 888-220-4640 x2018, or via email by clicking here.
