Estes Express Lines, the largest privately held freight transportation provider in North America, announced today that it is strengthening its partnership with MyCarrier, the leading small to midsize business shipping management platform, based out of Scottsdale, AZ. This partnership will allow Estes to smoothly transition its customers who are currently running Kuebix TMS, to MyCarrierTMS, following a recent announcement that Trimble is sunsetting the Kuebix TMS product. Estes was a “Preferred Carrier” with MyCarrier prior to this announcement, and the strengthening of this relationship will make MyCarrier the largest LTL freight TMS provider by customer count.
“At Estes, we’re committed to investing in technology that delivers a better experience for our customers and makes freight shipping easier,” said Estes President and CEO Rob Estes. “That’s why we’re so excited to be bringing MyCarrier’s superior TMS technology to even more of our LTL shippers.”
MyCarrier CEO Mike Bookout said, "We are thrilled to have a deeper relationship with Estes Express Lines. From the beginning, our vision and approach were based on strong partnering, working hand-in-hand with carrier partners and customers to streamline the carrier and shipper experience. The LTL community is vital to America's supply chain, and we are humbled that the most dynamic LTL carriers have adopted our platform and offer it to their customers. It's a unique scenario where it's a win-win for everybody."
"We understand that the transition from Kuebix to MyCarrier may seem stressful for some of our shippers, but Estes, Trimble, and MyCarrier are committed to simplifying the process,” added Estes. “We'll help each of our customers through the transition, ensuring all customers are migrating at the right time, based on their unique needs.”
Dan Popkin, Sector Vice President, Connected Supply Chain for Trimble Transportation added, “As we evolve our strategy to connect with many of the top shipper TMS providers, we are working to help all Kuebix customers transition to a technology that fits their business objectives. MyCarrier is an excellent option and one we are happy to recommend for the Kuebix Free Shipper and Estes Business Pro users.”
This enhanced partnership will enable Estes and MyCarrier to further accelerate LTL shipment automation throughout the network, which is essential for driving productivity for shipper and carrier networks. Estes continues to invest in technologies that simplify the shipping experience for its customers and make freight transportation easier. MyCarrier will leverage these investments to provide market-leading visibility, enabling shippers to optimize their freight operations.
MyCarrier has built a simple transition and onboarding process for any Estes customer utilizing Kuebix, enabling a smooth transition to MyCarrier. Customers can work with their local Estes salesperson to start the process, call 1-866-378-3748 or contact MyCarrier.
