Cube Route Teams with Intermec to Boost Data Capture
Functionality in the Field

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 1, 2005) -

Combined Offering to Integrate Tracking and Field Data Capture with
Visibility and Routing Service

Cube Route, a provider of on demand logistics services, today announced
that it has been named an Honors Partner by Intermec Technologies Corp.,
a provider of supply chain information products, services and systems.
Under the terms of the partnership agreement signed between the two
companies, Cube Route will add support for Intermec's 700 series mobile
computer to its on demand logistics service. This will enable
organizations with delivery or field service fleets to leverage both the
advanced visibility and routing capabilities of the Cube Route service
and the data capture features facilitated by the Intermec device, such
as electronic signature capture, Bluetooth GPS and package scanning.

"Our relationship with Intermec enables us to deliver the latest in
mobile computing technology to field workers so organizations can
differentiate their service and achieve even greater efficiencies across
their delivery operations," said Jeff Murphy, VP of Operations at Cube
Route. "Drivers out on the road will be able to capture more data and
run multiple applications concurrently on the Intermec device,
facilitating more effective and efficient operations and improving end
customer service. Features such as electronic signature capture are
effective and powerful tools in maintaining a chain of signature and
executing proof of delivery."

For Cube Route and Intermec customers such as Arctic Glacier, a
manufacturer and distributor of premium quality packaged ice products,
the benefits of the relationship are significant. By adding support for
the Intermec 700 series mobile computer to the Cube Route service,
Arctic Glacier will be able to provide their field workers with a single
device that can be used to manage enterprise wide distribution, route
accounting, provide real time visibility, and capture accurate and
timely data from the field.

"Cube Route's on demand logistics offering adds tremendous value to
Intermec's technology and services," said Intermec Vice President Les
Mesh. "Cube Route's ability to provide visibility into the delivery
cycle and transmit data in real time is invaluable in driving
operational efficiencies and cost savings for organizations with fleets
of vehicles. With the added functionality intrinsic to Intermec's mobile
technology, the benefits multiply."

Cube Route's on demand logistics service combines advanced tracking,
planning and routing functionality with the simplicity of Web-based
service delivery. It is offered on a pay-as-you-go basis, providing
users with visibility into their delivery operations in real-time, at a
fraction of the cost and complexity of traditional logistics software.
