1 Billion Rates Mark Important Growth Milestone for Catapult International

LENEXA, KS--(Marketwired - Jun 18, 2013) - Catapult International, a global logistics software and rate management company, today announced a major milestone -- 1 Billion global rates and surcharges databased and hosted for their client base of freight forwarders, manufacturers, and distributors.

With Catapult managing their clients' ocean and air carrier freight contracts, there are large volumes of rates and surcharges that are stored securely and easily retrieved through Catapult QMS®, an enterprise software solution. At any time, a user can access their best cost and transit options from point A to point B in seconds.

Started six years ago, Catapult International has been named as a Top 100 Logistics IT provider the last three years as well as one of the 50 fastest growing companies in the central United States. Now owning the market share for the top 15 global forwarders, Catapult International's growth has propelled them to the 1 billion rate mark.

"We have seen the industry trending towards 'Big Data' and analytics over the last couple of years. Catapult has been prepared for this milestone with the IT hardware infrastructure that has been developed using both relational and analytical servers as load grows. This infrastructure has made our growth scalable in terms of being able to accurately manage and store the millions of rows of data for our customers," notes David Luttrell, Chief Information Officer at Catapult.

Next month, Catapult sees the database numbers growing larger due to increased use of their global ground and local accessorial charges rating capabilities for their clients.
