New Transportation Insight platform offers single ‘port to porch’ access point

Earlier this week, Atlanta-based Transportation Insight Holding Company, a provider of non-asset, tech-enabled logistics and brokerage solutions in North America, rolled out a new digital logistics platform.

Entitled Beon, TI said that this new platform gives shippers and carriers a single point of access to access both TI’s and Atlanta-based Nolan Transportation Group’s (NTG) logistics network and services, “from port to porch.”

TI officials said that Beon was built by logistics experts leveraging proprietary technology and advanced machine learning algorithms to match demand to a capacity network of more than 850,000 drivers in real-time and at the right price. Collectively, the companies’ 2,500 professionals are using Beon to manage more than $15 billion in logistics spend, from the first to the final mile across all modes, including drayage, truckload, less-than-truckload, expedited and parcel.

“Beon now gives shippers and carriers direct access to TI & NTG’s digital freight, parcel and warehousing networks via API, web and mobile applications,” said TI.

TI Holding Company CEO Ken Beyer told LM that over the last few years, shippers and carriers have been faced with the decision to explore new, digital-only solutions or remain restricted by traditional or non-comprehensive technology.  

“Our vision was to build and acquire great technology that (em)powers even greater people— from port to porch, supported by our experts,” he said. “When our digital transformation started two years ago, we knew we could make this vision a reality and we couldn’t be more excited to now launch the Beon digital logistics platform.”

Beyer explained that Transportation Insight Holding Company (TI Holding Company) is the parent company of both Transportation Insight (TI) and Nolan Transportation Group (NTG), and a portfolio company of Gryphon Investors.

“In 2018, Gryphon Investors acquired NTG as a sister company to TI,” he said. “While TI and NTG have operated separately and retained their current brands, they recently joined under one leadership team to better leverage their combined product and services portfolio. 

When asked about the biggest benefits of the Beon platform for shippers and carriers, Beyer explained that Beon lets shippers and carriers simply connect to TI & NTG’s logistics networks and suite of products and services from a single access point.  

“Having a direct connection to a mode-agnostic network streamlines their operations and positions them to navigate the supply chain more efficiently and effectively across drayage, truckload, LTL, expedited, final mile, parcel, and warehousing,” he said. “Shippers and carriers of all sizes and freight types can leverage our scale and data intelligence to grow their business on a proven platform that’s supported by our team of experts.”

As for how is specifically works, he said that Beon simplifies access to TI & NTG’s multimodal network and services via API, web, and mobile applications.

“Features and functionality of the platform have been used internally since October 2020, and we are now extending the platform externally to shippers and carriers,” he said. “Users benefit from Beon’s advanced machine learning algorithms that drive efficiencies across the shipment lifecycle, including automated quoting and order creation, freight matching, and tendering. Nothing needs to change about the way our partners interact with us, as we already use the platform today. But they can leverage more of our scale, density, data, and intelligence directly, through the new products and tools we will be releasing in the coming weeks and months. Some of these include a free and business TMS for shippers and an improved web and mobile app for carriers.”

TI Holding Company Geoff Kelley, President and COO said in a statement that Beon is not just another stand-alone software solution that single-mindedly matches freight based on algorithms.

“It is the result of a deliberate strategy and the significant investments we’ve made to acquire and build the best technology and data products, integrated with expert-led services, required to solve complex supply chain issues from port to porch,” said Kelley.
