Company History

FreightDATA Software Inc., was originally established as Software Development Associates (SDA), specializing in the development of proprietary accounting systems for CPA’s in the late 70’s. In 1984, the principals of SDA were contracted to develop a trucking interface for the Less-than-Truckload environment for a Los Angeles based carrier.

In 1989, SDA was approached by IBM to migrate their system to run on the IBM RS/6000 platform and its version of Unix. Over the next several years, the application evolved to support the Truckload, Drayage/Intermodal, Warehouse, Air and Logistics environments. Extended solutions were integrated to support Wireless/Mobile, Imaging, EDI, Fax and Web Tracing technologies.

In January 2002, SDA officially changed the name of the company to FreightDATA Software, Inc. to better reflect their target market. Currently, the company is developing its Graphical User Interface (GUI) that will provide the “look and feel” of Windows on a secure and stable platform like Unix. Extended application development projects include an on-line interface with 3rd party tracing systems (Rail & Harbor), additional wireless solutions and broadening the Over-the-Road suite of applications. We have also established a Web Site Design and Consulting practice.

FreightDATA Software has and will continue to create a “best of breed” suite of applications to meet the ever changing needs of its current and future customers.
