Princeton TMX, a Princeton Consultants Subsidiary, Launches Shipper TMS Business

October 24, 2016

Princeton TMX, an Indiana-based software company, has been launched to provide shippers with a cloud-based next-generation transportation management system (TMS). As a foundation of its mission, Princeton TMX has acquired the shipper software business of TransWorks, a subsidiary of Norfolk Southern Corporation.  This business is based on a breakthrough TMS platform that has successfully managed millions of shipments over 13 years for customers in agribusiness, building products, chemicals, forest products, metals, packaging companies, and diverse manufacturers.

Princeton TMX President Tim Minnich is the former president of TransWorks, which he helped found in 2001. Based in the PNC Center in downtown Fort Wayne, Princeton TMX has hired a team of top developers and account managers who created and supported the software system at TransWorks.

“We are dedicated to taking our shipper TMS platform to even greater heights—making it easier to use, with better functionality, savings and visibility,” said Minnich. “We have an experienced team that is executing from Day One on our roadmap, and we are fortunate to leverage the superb technical resources of our parent company, Princeton Consultants.”

“We see a tremendous opportunity to partner with shippers and redefine how technology can help improve transparency and reduce costs for all parties,” said Steve Sashihara, CEO of Princeton Consultants, and chairman of Princeton TMX. “The shipper TMS business we purchased has been a solid and successful platform for many well-managed, transportation-reliant companies—and we look forward to working with them to create a next-generation product that makes it even more successful for their businesses.”
