Software providers to leverage complementary strengths and deliver advanced TMS platform for the midmarket and enterprise companies
Shelton, Conn., February 25, 2020 — 3Gtms, LLC (“3Gtms”), a global provider of Tier 1 transportation management software (TMS), today announced that it has acquired Pacejet, a provider of enterprise cloud-based, multi-carrier shipping software. Terms were not disclosed.
3Gtms develops and delivers the next level in transportation and logistics software. The 3G-TM platform counts multi-mode enterprise-class order management, planning, optimization, routing, rating, tendering, booking, tracking and settlement amongst its extensive capabilities. The company’s stellar references prove that when failure is not an option, shippers, 3PLs and brokers alike turn to 3Gtms.
Sumeru Equity Partners (“SEP”) invested in 3Gtms nearly one year ago—a period in which 3Gtms has experienced strong success in growing the business, adding to its team and scaling operations. Sumeru’s further investment in Pacejet and its innovative cloud-based global shipping software will extend the 3G-TM platform to access more market channels and to more comprehensively serve customers’ complex parcel shipping needs.
“3Gtms is laser-focused on delivering an exceptional customer experience in addition to providing high-value generating transportation management and execution solutions that evolve with the times. Pacejet reflects the same values and goals,” said Mitch Weseley, CEO and founder of 3Gtms. “With this strong foundation in place, as well as with SEP’s partnership, we are confident in our collective teams’ ability to realize the significant potential in market expansion as well as existing customer and employee opportunity that the joining of our two companies represents.”
“The complementary strengths of Pacejet and 3Gtms, along with the alignment of values and the services we can deliver together, open up new possibilities for our customers,” said Bill Knapp, former CEO and now general manager of Pacejet, a division of 3Gtms. “We’re thrilled to bring our solution to a larger market and to offer Pacejet’s customers new opportunities for leveraging the full power of 3G-TM to better manage and optimize their transportation operation.”
“We are excited to bring these two companies together, rapidly accelerating their respective productive roadmaps,” said Mark Haller, principal at SEP and 3Gtms board director. “Integrating 3Gtms’ high scale, ultra-flexible Tier 1 TMS platform with Pacejet’s best-in-class shipping execution solution will enhance our capabilities to best serve our current and future customers’ complex transportation and logistics needs.”
