SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--()--JDA Software Group, Inc. today announced that ProTrans International, Inc. (ProTrans) will implement JDA® Transportation Modeler, part of JDA® Transportation Management solutions. JDA Transportation Modeler will help this third party logistics provider (3PL) drive transportation optimization and meet the demands of today’s fast-paced logistics landscape.

The company is headquartered in Indianapolis, Ind., and operates over 24 service centers throughout Canada, Mexico and the U.S.

“ProTrans has been a JDA user for quite some time. While we reviewed many other optimization solutions during the selection process, JDA offered the best solution from both a functionality aspect and commercial alignment perspective to meet our needs at a very reasonable cost,” said Shawn Masters, Chief Commercial Officer, ProTrans.

As a 3PL offering completely integrated planning and execution services, ProTrans needed a modeling solution that could drive transportation optimization opportunities with simplified – and implementable – inputs plus usable outputs to keep up with customer demands. “With capacity continuously being a concern and the ever-present pressures of meeting guaranteed savings commitments, we needed a state-of-the-art optimization tool that could meet the demands of our teams.

This solution supports all the different needs of ProTrans’ network planning teams in developing complex logistics solutions.

“JDA Transportation Modeler will help ProTrans manage the high complexity of today’s logistics landscape and make optimal customer recommendations, maximizing their capacity utilization and delivery speed,” said Danny Halim, Vice President, industry strategy, distribution and 3PL, JDA. “As logistics providers continue to balance agility and profitability, JDA Transportation Modeler not only enables ProTrans to provide strategic guidance to their customers, but gives them the ability to quickly and continuously optimize their transportation network without the burden of implementing a heavy transportation management system.”
