A cutting-edge solution that allows carriers to purchase and manage permits through its TMS software

TAMPA, Florida, Nov. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InMotion Global Inc. announced today that AscendTMS, the world’s most popular and number one rated transportation management software (TMS), has added real-time truck permit purchases and management to its leading TMS software through a continued partnership with the largest provider of commercial truck permits, Comdata Inc.

“Comdata’s use of AscendTMS has made the process of obtaining truck permits easier and more cost-effective for carriers,” said Tim Higham, President of AscendTMS. “TMS software is the source of all truth regarding a carrier’s customers, assets, drivers—and now DOT permits.
