LSO, the Southern US Regional Parcel Carrier, and Pierbridge, Inc. announced today that they have reached an agreement that will enable LSO to roll out a suite of advanced cloud-based shipping solutions to their customers. These solutions will provide real-time integration with customer order management systems and fully automate rating, shipping, and tracking within warehouse and office environments.
"We are excited about our new partnership with Pierbridge," said LSO CEO Rick Jones. "They have consistently demonstrated industry leadership and technical innovation over the years. Making leading-edge shipping automation part of the value we deliver to our customers is critical to both our and our customers’ success and we know Pierbridge is a great fit to help us do that."
The new LSO solutions, branded "OmniShip", will run on any PC, Mac, or mobile browser with real-time connectivity to local scales, thermal label printers, and data sources. While LSO expects to roll out solutions primarily from the cloud, higher volume shippers will have the option of deploying the same solutions on-premise. Pierbridge's "Transtream" solution will be available for those LSO customers who want to process their shipments from LSO along with all of their other parcel and LTL carriers.
"B2C eCommerce growth is driving the demand for more delivery service alternatives," said Pierbridge CEO Bob Malley. "LSO has distinguished itself as a leading regional parcel carrier and has a reputation for excellent customer service. We are thrilled to be able to work with them to help them use technology to achieve rapid, on-time delivery."
LSO and Pierbridge expect to start rolling out OmniShip solutions in September 2016.
