TRAFFIX, one of Canada’s longest-serving third-party logistics specialist, based out of Milton Ontario with offices in Toronto, Montreal, Chicago, and Dallas, is proud to announce that they have joined the Blockchain in Transport Alliance (BiTA).
For more than three decades, TRAFFIX’s mission has been to put people first—their customers, their team, and their partners, and joining BiTA is just an extension of that mission. 2018 has already brought with it significant changes to the transportation industry and these impressive leaps forward in innovation and technology are only going to continue to affect trucking as we know it. By being at the forefront of the rise of blockchain technology in this sector, it is just one way that TRAFFIX will set the stage for success with their customers for years to come.
TRAFFIX's Director of Information Technology, Carlos Trivino shares that, “There is no question that we have invested heavily in technology. This has allowed us to grow over 120% last year and there is no sign of stopping. Our mission is to stay on top of the curve when it comes to technology in the transportation sector, which is why we have joined the Blockchain in Transport Alliance to help form the standards and assist in developing blockchain technology in the supply chain world.”
“TRAFFIX aims to be on the leading edge of technology, and being a part of this organization will allow us to comment on and be at the forefront of the implementation of Blockchain Transportation Standards” he adds. “Blockchain is having a positive impact in the supply chain world, specifically in RFP’s, EDI, POD’s, Invoicing, Driver HOS, etc., just to name a few. Its ability is virtually limitless, and we cannot wait to be part of this innovative and growing technology in the transportation sector.”
In 1979, Chuck Snow established TRAFFIX after leaving his family's flower import business, as he wanted to build a place for himself within the transportation industry and work to change a system of regulations and inefficiencies that offered very few benefits to customers and trucking companies. As one of Canada’s first load brokers, TRAFFIX reduced costs and worked to eradicate “empty” miles, while focusing on developing long-lasting relationships with their customers. Their commitment to customers and growth is seen today in their decision to invest in key transportation “hubs” across North America.
Today, TRAFFIX boasts a fleet of state-of-the-art tractors and trailers, all of which feature their customized operating software. They have also expanded operations to include perishable, dry, project cargo, air, and intermodal freight services.
