Cadec Global and TMW Systems Partner to Help Clients Improve Trucking Fleet Productivity

Integrated Solution Provides Managers With Real-Time Data on Delivery, Driver and Vehicle Status

MANCHESTER, NH--(Marketwire - September 19, 2007) - Cadec Global, a provider of driver-centric fleet management systems, announced today a partnership with TMW Systems, Inc. that will help joint clients track and improve trucking fleet and dispatch productivity.

TMW enables carriers to easily integrate vital, real-time data from every facet of their operations into a single system to maximize operational efficiency, deliver superior customer service and ensure long-term profitability. Cadec is known for over 30 years of innovative driver-centric fleet management systems that measure driver performance, monitor critical safety and compliance aspects, optimize fuel consumption and accelerate delivery times.

Several large companies, including Gibson Energy, are already using TMW and Cadec to better manage their trucking fleets via custom integration. As a result of this new partnership, the next version of Cadec's fleet management software, shipping later this year, will feature Web services APIs that enable out-of-the-box integration with one of TMW's enterprise management solutions, TMWSuite®. The integrated TMW/Cadec solution will enable customers to:

--  Get real-time status of every truck, driver and delivery from within
    their TMW screen.
--  Turn trucks around faster, with accurate, real-time dispatch
    information.
--  Optimize the load in every truck for greater efficiency and maximized
    revenue per vehicle.
    

"Cadec's fleet management systems provide real-time, driver-centric data that's crucial for transportation managers," said David Wangler, CEO at TMW Systems. "Working closely with Cadec allows TMW to deliver a customer's real-time data right to their TMW screens. It's another example of our commitment to giving customers all the timely, relevant data they need to maximize fleet productivity."

"TMW is the platform of choice for so many large trucking fleets," said Michael Baney, CEO of Cadec. "Linking TMW with Cadec will help our joint customers take swift action to remedy potential problems, or replicate success, based on driver information."

Cadec is known for providing a very open and extensible platform for fleet management. Its hosted, service-oriented architecture (SOA) design makes it easy to update, meaning that as new versions of TMWSuite are released, Cadec clients will automatically benefit from updates that sustain their integration. Other fleet management vendors require full upgrades or customization of their software in order to keep in sync with integration partners.

Cadec demonstrated its trucking fleet management solutions at TMW's TransForum 2007, which took place this week at the Marriott World Center Resort in Orlando, Fla.
