Consolidated Chassis Enterprises, parent company of Consolidated Chassis Management (CCM), has decided to launch CCM’s technology group as a new division named Consolidated Intermodal Technologies (CIT).
CCM claims to be the leading cooperate chassis pool manager in the US. To support its business model CCM developed an in-house Asset Management Application Suite, including and MandR platform, Chassis Management System and a Billing management system. This technology, which CCM says “has been optimising CCM’s chassis pool operations through tens of millions of transactions” is now available to other chassis fleet managers through CTI. Tom Martucci will lead the new CCE technology initiative as the CTO of CIT and will continue to serve as VP and CTO of CCM.
“CCM is committed to evolving with the supply chain by leveraging our strengths: our technology and our people. The launch of CIT allows CCM’s proven proprietary technology and powerful platform fill a significant void in the market with a cutting-edge technology solution,” said Mike Wilson, CEO of CCM and CIT. “Our experience plus our research tells us that many asset managers are bogged down with legacy applications that do not fully address their pain points. CIT will launch our multi-product, multi-solution platform to meet these needs.”
“As the technology behind CCM’s asset management system, the CIT platform has a proven track record of driving efficiencies, improving utilisation and productivity, reducing redundancies and enhancing visibility. The user-friendly, intuitive asset management system streamlines workflows and upgrades administrative systems while supporting unique business operations through highly configurable and scalable software. Built to be flexible, the CIT platform is aimed to meet the diverse supply chain needs of fleet managers of any size, including equipment providers, motor carriers, railroad operators, IMC’s, and terminal operators across the U.S,” CCM stated.
“We recognised that the CIT platform could bridge the gap between high tech and low tech. The system was built by CCM’s technology group in collaboration with our pool managers over the last 15 years, so we are in the unique position of experiencing first-hand the operational challenges of managing a fleet,” said Tom Martucci, CTO of CIT. “Now we are making the platform available to other fleet managers looking to fully optimise their assets, digitally transform their operations and grow their business.”News Source: World Cargo news
