Profit Tools TMS Company Overview - Why you should choose Profit Tools

Profit Tools intermodal trucking transportation software began in 1995 as a joint venture between trucking company owner James P. Daley Jr., and software specialist Brian K. Widell. The goal was to create an intermodal trucking software package that could serve as a complete operations management system, for multimode "flexible service" carriers.

As the owner of an intermodal trucking company (S&J Transportation, Lee, NH), Jim had identified the need for an intermodal software system that could run his entire operation, from dispatch to billing, and everything in between. Together, Jim and Brian created Profit Tools, the intermodal trucking software solution.

The Intermodal Leader... and much more

Another unique feature of our intermodal trucking software is the way our system tracks intermodal containers. Our process was recognized early on as a distinctive feature of our transportation software system. We've built on that strength to become the nation's leading intermodal software solution & multi-mode transportation software company.

However, many of our customers don't do container work at all. They take advantage of our software's unique flexibility to adapt to varying service offerings, and our capability to surpass the needs of the changing intermodal trucking market.

The bottom line is, our system remains flexible enough to provide transportation software to any and all carriers. Currently, Profit Tools has over 300 customers throughout North America and the Caribbean running highly successful operations through the use of our transportation software.

Flexible Software for Flexible Carriers

"Built for flexible service". This means our operations management software can deal with containers and chassis, flatbeds, dry-vans, reefers, air freight, TL, in-route and cross-dock LTL, brokerage...and whatever else customers may ask an intermodal trucking company to do. "We can do it". That was the motto of our founder's trucking operation, so accommodating "flexible service" was built right into the Profit Tools' DNA.
