PCS Software acquires UltraShipTMS, expanding end-to-end supply chain capabilities

New Jersey-based UltraShip TMS best known in agricultural and food shipping circles, but counts many larger shippers as customers

PCS Software has acquired UltraShipTMS, a cloud-based supply chain transportation management system (TMS) company.

Houston-based PCS said the acquisition allows it to expand on its “existing transportation logistics management and fleet management capabilities and expand its capabilities to create one integrated shipper and carrier platform.”

Terms were not disclosed.

“UltraShipTMS is a force in the TMS industry and is known for its quality supply chain and logistics technology solutions. The company has seen tremendous growth over the last few years and has a stronghold among agricultural producers and food shippers. This will complement our customer base and allow PCS to extend its footprint,” said Chris Poelma, CEO and board director at PCS Software.

In addition to its foothold in agriculture and food shippers, UltraShipTMS, based in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, provides its TMS to material manufacturers, consumer products packaging companies, personal protective equipment/sanitary product producers, and other high-volume shippers.

PCS offers an all-in-one transportation management platform that includes accounting, dispatch, fleet, mobile communications, safety and compliance (ELD and ELD manager), and reporting functionality. It counts more than 1,000 trucking customers on its platform.

PCS said the acquisition will allow it to offer a full end-to-end, unified interface for shipping and tracking visibility.

“We are excited to join forces with PCS and combine our areas of expertise to further improve the supply and logistics industry,” said Nicholas Carretta, president of UltraShipTMS.

UltraShipTMS just released version 5.19 of its TMS platform. The latest version adds functionality for shippers operating outside of North America and Central America, and adds new options within the UltraFleet module for private and dedicated fleet management.

It has also been integrated with Samsara telematics and adds improved fleet asset management courtesy of the new, multiline tractor importer that has been added to the Tractor Data Management page.
