August 25, 2015 – Columbus, OH – BestTransport, a leading provider of cloud-based Transportation Management (TMS) solutions, today announced its latest customer implementation, Big Tex Trailers headquartered in Mt. Pleasant, TX. Big Tex Trailers is one of the country’s leading manufacturers of heavy duty trailers and one of the fastest growing companies in its market.

BestTransport’s TMS cloud-based software was chosen from an undisclosed set of TMS vendors. Functionality, flexibility, competitive pricing, and speed of implementation were all key selection criteria. Facing an aggressive timetable, BestTransport was able to fully implement the software, train Big Tex personnel, and enable transactions to take place in less than 30 days.

“We are very pleased with BestTransport’s software and team,” said Jim Tunnell, Big Tex Trailers CIO. “They worked with us as a team every step of the way to make the implementation as smooth as possible while their software is delivering to expectations. It was a great project.”

“Implementation of BestTransport has allowed us to decrease our load acceptance time from over 48 hours a year ago to under 4 hours currently on most loads while taking advantage of the most cost effective transportation partner with available capacity in each lane. With multiple shipping locations, we have centralized the process to have visibility and accountability in both service and pricing”.

“Our carrier partners are able to book dock time for each location, once a load is accepted, which provides a vast improvement in time management of the shipping process. We are quite pleased with the results from the TMS.” explained Garland Hutson, Big Tex Transportation Manager.

Remarked BestTransport’s CEO, Mike Dolan, “Big Tex Trailers has grown tremendously and has plans for continued aggressive growth. They have been very thoughtful about ensuring they have the systems in place to support that growth. I’m pleased our TMS software is a key component to helping Big Tex achieve its goals.”
