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.
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.
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.
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.
