Chicago, IL, United States, 2005/09/07 - The Real Time Freight™ solution streamlines communication between large shippers and distributors and their preferred carrier and broker base by building private web-based load boards that share time-sensitive freight information.
Real Time Freight Services, LLC, announced today that it has become a service affiliate member of the North American Wholesale Lumber Association (NAWLA). NAWLA is an international trade association with more than 650 leading lumber and building-material wholesalers, manufacturers, and industry-affiliated companies across the United States and Canada. Within the lumber industry, NAWLA and its members are the gold standard when it comes to distributing forest products and building materials efficiently, as well as addressing and solving industry-related problems. During the membership process, Real Time Freight was nominated by some of their current customers and accepted by NAWLA’s current board of directors.
“The key message about the NAWLA membership, it’s like a little exclusive club and not everyone gets in, especially vendors,” says Patrick Maloney, RTF Sales Manger. “To get in means that they really like and feel our solution could help other members with the exact same problem that they’re all facing in this time of ever-increasing difficulty in transportation: There are more and more people chasing fewer and fewer trucking companies.”
NAWLA is an international trade association of over 650 leading forest products and building material industry wholesalers, manufacturers and industry affiliated companies throughout the United States and Canada. NAWLA, whose wholesale members' combined annual sales exceed $30 billion, is dedicated to enhancing professionalism and efficiency throughout the lumber distribution channel and to the responsible use of forest resources. NAWLA's role is to aid wholesale distributors in addressing and solving common industry challenges in the areas of transportation, government and environmental regulations, e-commerce and technology, and certainly ongoing education. NAWLA members serve as the unifying force for efficient forest products and building materials distribution.
