Trans Ocean Carrier Selects FreightDATA Software to Automate Harbor Drayage Operations

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Feb. 15,2002 - FreightDATA Software has announced the purchase and installation of its transportation software systems by Trans Ocean Carrier, Inc., a harbor drayage company located in Long Beach, Calif. The FreightDATA system will be used in virtually all daily operations and accounting functions to automate many manual, time-intensive procedures.

The suite of FreightDATA Software solutions are designed specifically to handle the unique management and operational demands of small to medium-sized companies in the transportation industry. FreightDATA'S Drayage software package allows complete flexibility and control in all stages of freight movement in and out of the harbor by creating and maintaining personalized customer ratings for harbor consignee and back, or whatever combination of rates are applicable. The system provides a comprehensive integrated package that includes multiple dispatch modules, rating, billing, accounting and more. By automating many previously manually performed tasks, the system speeds procedures and cash flow, and improves customer service.

Trans Ocean previously used a generic, custom DOS-based system. With increased growth-volume of movements average about 3,000 per week - Trans Ocean found the DOS-based system too cumbersome and unsophisticated to effectively automate its business and meet the "need-it-today" customer expectations in today's fast-paced Internet-dependent economy.

"We selected FreightDATA because of the company's background, history, and reputation for services," said Richard Tsao, Trans Ocean Vice President of operations.
"Pricing was also more competitive and a determining factor."

Trans Ocean anticipates that the software system costs will be recouped within eight(8) months by streamlining procedures in all areas of the business including expediting freight bill tracking, and speeding accounting tasks such as automatic posting of daily activity and revenue reports to the general ledger, accounts receivable, and various statistical files.

"Harbor drayage is one of the many applications where FreightDATA's transportation software provides powerful benefits," said Todd Smith, FreightDATA Director Of Sales and Marketing.
