Named one of the 100 fastest-growing companies four years in a row by the Los Angeles Business Journal, Daylight Transport Daylight Transport is one of the leading expedited less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers in the United States.
Fast, flexible service requires integrated systems
To support their growth, Daylight Transport requires tightly integrated systems to manage customer orders, coordinate freight movement, monitor shipments, notify partners, invoice clients and more. Automating these processes can provide substantial benefits such as increased customer satisfaction, speeding time to revenue and even increasing revenue for the company.
To bring IBM® Sterling Gentran®, which provides electronic data interchange (EDI) and data translation for high-volume transactions, TruckMate® from TMW Systems, a transportation management system/ERP for managing freight movement end-to-end, Daylight Transport selected Dell Boomi. Following a speedy and satisfactory proof of concept (POC), Daylight Transport moved quickly into full implementation mode, creating and implementing integrations in a manner of days rather than weeks.
New opportunities for integration
Daylight Transport has also been able to add functionality that was previously very difficult, even impossible. “With the old architecture, we were limited in what we could do, but with Boomi, we can tailor the code to generate data as needed.”
Delivering the goods
Daylight Transport has increased their opportunities for revenue by more than $1,000 a day and they plan to continue using Boomi at every opportunity in the future. “Any time we’re looking to do any kind of integration, we look first at leveraging Boomi because it is so quick for us to get solutions in place.Boomi gives us the flexibility we need to meet our customers’ needs.”
