Rockpoint Logistics realizes a 3% reduction in overall transportation spend and adds new carrier services to its network.
For specialty publishers like universities, professional groups and trade organizations, the prospect of printing, stocking and shipping individual titles is inefficient if not outright impossible. However, their buyers, including schools, bookstores, and consumers themselves, still expect rapid fulfillment of orders. Bridging this gap is Rockpoint Logistics, which stocks and distributes more than 1 million books, DVDs and other material for hundreds of specialty publisher clients.
Faced with an aging parcel shipping system and limited carrier selections, RockPoint Logistics sought out a solution to completely revitalize their shipping and transportation management operations. Among other specifications, Rockpoint required the new system to integrate with their JDA Red Prairie WMS system and provide real time pricing and routing for all their carriers.
Rockpoint chose the Logistyx Technologies multi-carrier parcel shipping software solution to automate their entire fulfillment process. Logistyx verifies package contents, instantly calculates the best carrier option, and helps streamline the daily execution of more than 8,000 parcel shipments.

TAGG Logistics is a leading order fulfillment and third party logistics (3PL) provider focused on helping businesses cost-effectively handle their order fulfillment and distribution challenges. Operating out of facilities in St. Louis, Missouri (MO) and Reno, Nevada (NV), the company serves a nationwide client base of manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers shipping to their customers throughout North America and around the world.
Tod Yazdi and Gary Patterson founded TAGG Logistics in 2006 and began a steady path of aggressive growth. “We knew that we were going to quickly outgrow our legacy systems as they didn’t have the functionality to address the more sophisticated requirements our clients were demanding,” said Yazdi. Based on their plans for growth, TAGG’s team was required to implement new warehouse management system (WMS) and transportation management system (TMS) to handle a very high volume and diverse order fulfillment environment.
TAGG reviewed several systems, and they chose the Cadence WMS by Cadre Technologies solution along with Logistyx Technologies multi-carrier parcel shipping software. Cadence and Ship-IT are tightly integrated with a scalable architecture to exchange information in real-time to create the most efficient fulfillment processes.
