Wiseway Lauches New Web Site

Furniture World Magazine


Wiseway Transportation Services announced the official launch of the company’s new web site, www.wiseway.com. The site features three key freight management services as part of Wiseway’s long-term commitment to e-commerce. "More and more of our customers are managing their freight in today's e-commerce environment via the Internet,” notes Marcus Cary, Vice President, Sales and Marketing. “Access to shipment information before, during and after the shipment brings additional efficiency and value to our customers and Wiseway. Our long-term e-commerce strategy involves continued development of easy-to-use tools for customers to complete transactions and managing their business via our web site.” The three new customer features launched July 1, 2003 include: An Online Rate Quote System that can provide customers an accurate Rate Quote for LTL and Truckload Freight. An Internet-Based Booking and Tracking System that is integrated with Wiseway’s Satellite Tracking System. This program allows customers to know EXACTLY where their freight is at any time of the day or night, from any internet-ready computer in the World. Instant access to images of the Customer’s Bill of Lading and Proof Of Delivery. Wiseway will still check the information that was electronically captured when a shipment is picked up. According to Cary, checking the captured data will provide a quality control step to ensure the shipment data record gets off to an accurate start. “Providing this type of value-added e-commerce capability to our customers is exciting. We're bringing a real benefit to customers, beyond the traditional freight transport functions,” explains Rich Carl, Executive Vice President of Wiseway Transportation Services. “The electronic capture of a modest amount of customer-unique data at the beginning of the transaction can pay real dividends later as the transaction is completed. Customers can realize benefits throughout the entire supply chain – including increased employee productivity and reduced costs.” Since 1988, Wiseway has been a premier provider of transportation services.

Today, Wiseway is a truly comprehensive transportation services company, shipping all sizes and types of cargo via road, rail,
