Tailwind’s new ‘all-in-one’ SaaS trucking software built to help smaller players in rapidly growing and increasingly competitive market

November 16, 2016, Vancouver BC – Building on their expertise creating enterprise-grade transportation management systems (TMS), Tailwind is pleased to announce the launch of their new, web-based Trucking Software and Freight Broker Software, available in SaaS (Software as a Service) form. With a starting price of $69 a month and the first 30-days free, Tailwind’s all-in-one Trucking & Freight Broker Software is built to help small to medium sized trucking companies and freight brokerages compete more effectively in a rapidly growing, yet increasingly competitive and regulated industry.

“Tailwind is excited to launch a game-changing transportation software that will allow companies to run a trucking business, a freight brokerage, or both, out of the same solution – and offer it in a way that requires no big upfront investment,” said Murray Pratt, President & CEO of Tailwind Transportation Software.A truly Internet-centric application, Tailwind connects into a number of technology partners to give our customers an efficient method for transforming and building their businesses quickly.”

“At Superior Transportation we pride ourselves in providing the highest level of transport services covering Western Canada, so having quick and easy access to important business information – not wasting time searching in filing cabinets and piles of paper – is a must,” says Ray Khaira, Owner and Manager of Superior Transportation Logistics. “With Tailwind all our business data is backed-up and secure, available from anywhere, and we have complete control over who gets access to what. And the price point is great – especially for the level of support we get. Our admin and operations are that much more effective with Tailwind at our back.”

Tailwind’s ‘all-in-one’ web-based trucking software ties together a Customer and Carrier Database, an Equipment and Driver Management system, a Quoting and Order tool, a Dispatching application, and an Administration and Accounting utility. Tailwind’s newest application was built for the growing number of small-to-mid sized operations that make up 97%* of the over 1.4-million trucking companies* responsible for moving approximately 70%* of all cargo weight in the US alone (*US Department of Transportation).

“The ATA [American Trucking Association] predicts a 66% rise in industry revenue and a 24% increase in tonnage by 2022, so you know the freight industry is going through fundamental changes,” said Tailwind’s Pratt. “It will be those freight businesses that are nimble and that can leverage the latest technologies who will benefit the most from this industry growth.”

Tailwind Transportation Software is a leader in providing web-based transportation software that allows trucking companies and freight brokerages the ability to adjust and adapt their business model to changing business circumstances. A dual currency application, Tailwind allows American and Canadian companies to manage and track their customers, drivers, equipment and loads across state, provincial and national borders. Being web-based, the application allows users to access all their operational and administrative data through one simple login from anywhere with an Internet connection.
