DALLAS, March 27, 2008 — One Network Enterprises, a pioneer in multi-enterprise and multi-party sense-and-respond solutions, announced that it has been selected to provide its Demand-Driven Transportation solution for the Defense Transportation Coordination Initiative (DTCI). One Network is deploying an integrated suite of on-demand software applications and services for the initiative under a subcontract with DTCI’s prime contractor and program manager, Menlo Worldwide Government Services.

One Network will be the sole provider of transportation management software applications and services to Menlo in support of DTCI. One Network joins a strong team of leading technology, software and service providers participating in Menlo’s winning proposal for the DTCI program, including Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), selected to provide IT infrastructure hosting, network management and integration services and Olgoonik Logistics, which will provide professional services supporting the participation of minority-owned and small business firms as service contractors for DTCI. Under the prime contract, potentially worth US$1.6 billion, an integrated logistics solution is being delivered for shipment planning, optimization, shipment execution and overall transportation resource management, governing Department of Defense material shipments in the 48 contiguous United States.
“DTCI is a critical program and we’re proud to be partnered with Menlo, CSC and Olgoonik. This award is a strong testimony to the success of our Demand-Driven Transportation suite,” stated Greg Brady, One Network Chief Executive Officer. “USTRANSCOM has a clear mission to improve service level delivery and reduce costs and an equally clear vision for the deployment of a next-generation transportation solution that will manage, unify and optimize the end-to-end process for domestic military logistics operations.”
The program will deploy One Network’s Demand-Driven Transportation Management System (TMS) suite, a proven solution in use by more than 2,800 customers to manage over US$150 billion in annual trade. The solution includes highly functional Transportation Applications, including strong capabilities for optimization of freight volumes and networks, a powerful software infrastructure for multi-enterprise collaboration and transaction management and a high performance global trading network that unites the user and service provider trade community.
Benefits from the DTCI program are expected to include increased operational efficiencies and cost savings, as well as better visibility of freight movements. The improved visibility will enable more effective planning and execution across modes of transportation, enabling USTRANSCOM to better meet customer delivery expectations.
“One Network’s next-generation Transportation Management suite was a principal component of our integrated solution proposal,” said Andy Dyer, Vice President, Menlo Worldwide Government Services. “Their advanced optimization capabilities, coupled with a powerful network-based architecture will play a fundamental role in the successful deployment of this mission-critical technology platform for DTCI.”
