XPO to use Catapult for rate management

Fast growing 3PL and freight brokerage will use Catapult’s flagship QMS platform to get quicker, more accurate freight quotes.

   The transportation rate management software provider Catapult International said Wednesday that third-party logistics provider and freight brokerage firm XPO Global Logistics will use Catapult’s flagship program QMS as its new global freight rate management platform.
   Catapult QMS will serve as XPO’s centralized database for contracts and ocean, air, and ground rates from all locations. Users will be able to search rates, email quotes, run requests for quotes, view transit times, create reports, and book shipments through a single platform.
   “The immediate benefits to XPO Global Logistics’ operation will include the ability to provide customer quotes faster and better visibility into key management performance indicators,” said Matt Motsick, Catapult’s chief executive officer.
   XPO has grown rapidly in the last few years, first through the acquisition of multiple freight brokerages, and then through the addition of companies in the third party logistics, last-mile logistics and intermodal spaces, highlighted by its deals this year for Pacer International and New Breed Logistics.
   American Shipper chronicled XPO’s focus on technology in its January 2013 issue.
