Hitch™ TMS will power the Signal Marketplace to expedite wholesale vehicle logistics for dealers across North America
PHOENIX, AZ – RunBuggy Inc.,the leading technology platform that connects car shippers and transporters, announced today that Signal, the leading cross border data-driven ecosystem that connects wholesale buyers and sellers, has chosen to integrate RunBuggy’s Hitch™ Transportation Management System (TMS) to streamline car shipping for its dealers across the United States and Canada.
Signal’s innovative technology powers the robust Canada to US import market, connecting exporters, importers, and dealers for an end-to-end, highly automated ecosystem that accelerates every step in the wholesale supply chain.
Signal selected RunBuggy’s Hitch Transport Management System to further streamline the wholesale supply chain by seamlessly integrating their own drivers, existing transporter partners, and RunBuggy’s nationwide marketplace of verified haulers into one platform.
“Logistics is an incredibly important part of our business and RunBuggy Hitch is a game-changer for us,” said Tane Jillings, Co-founder and President at Signal Technologies. “The Hitch TMS is the only solution we found on the market tailored to our specific automotive needs. By connecting Hitch TMS with the Signal Marketplace, we give our dealers a truly comprehensive, end-to-end, supply chain solution.”
RunBuggy launched Hitch in November 2022 in response to what the company saw as legacy, complex, and expensive TMS systems that were ill-equipped to handle automotive logistics. As consumers increasingly expect an Amazon-like experience when they purchase a new or used vehicle and get it delivered to their home, new technology is needed to enable dealers, fleets, finance companies and OEMs to connect logistics stakeholders under a single platform to ship vehicles faster, easier, and smarter. RunBuggy Hitch was specifically built to address this need.
“We are seeing tremendous interest in the Hitch TMS solution,” said Jason Kong, Senior Vice President at RunBuggy. “In just a few months since launch, the largest names in automotive retail have already signed up. Innovative companies like Signal recognize the need to leverage technology to improve their operational efficiency, have their team focus on meaningful work, connect all the fragmented pieces of the supply chain, and provide transparency and updates to their customers. Hitch is the answer they’ve been looking for.”
