Schaumburg, IL – January 14, 2016 – Advanced Distribution Solutions, Inc., (ADSI) announced today a partnership to integrate their Ship-IT™ multi-carrier shipping software platform with project44, a progressive Chicago-based technology providing web-service API connectivity to the freight industry.

Coupled with ADSI’s award-winning technology, this partnership delivers automated LTL shipping execution and tracking, dimensioning, labeling, barcode & RFID scanning, Internet of Moving Things (IoMT) and other kinds of advanced capabilities to users of the project44 platform, allowing project44 clients to streamline their warehouse operations and optimize LTL shipping costs.
