MfgQuote.com Adds Managed Global Transportation Logistics

Partnership with Matson Integrated Logistics Gives MfgQuote.com Users Preferred Pricing for their Shipping Needs.

ATLANTA, Nov. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- MfgQuote.com, the world's largest marketplace for sourcing and selling manufacturing services, today added a new service to streamline the timely and affordable delivery of manufactured goods sourced through its Web site. The unique partnership lets buyers and sellers securely and seamlessly add transportation via Matson Integrated Logistics to their requests for quotes (RFQs) or replies, the core activity on the marketplace.

Matson Integrated Logistics (MIL), a leader in an estimated $23.5 billion logistics industry, provides multimodal transportation services including domestic intermodal rail service, long haul and regional highway services, specialized hauling and expedited air and ground services. MIL is a Top Performer in Logistics Management magazine's Quest for Quality award for service excellence each of the last four years.

MfgQuote.com users who create or respond to an RFQ will have the opportunity to work through Matson Logistics to develop a customized transportation solution for shipments of a pallet or larger. MfgQuote.com's relationship with Matson gives users preferred pricing on Matson services, enabling users to save money on every RFQ they execute.

"MfgQuote.com connects buyers and suppliers around the globe and each RFQ that passes through MfgQuote.com will have engineered-to-order components that will need to be delivered," said Mitch Free, president and CEO of MfgQuote.com. "We decided to help streamline the process and provide logistics management, along with special pricing to the MfgQuote.com community. Logistics considerations are part of the RFQ creation and quoting process, and now the MfgQuote.com community has convenient, yet highly flexible options with Matson."

The MfgQuote.com/Matson relationship directly addresses supply chain needs outlined in AMR Research's April 2005 report "Contract Manufacturing at a Cross Roads: Brand Owner Need for Visibility." These needs include:

     - A wider range of supply and logistics services for brand owners.
     - The ability for parties in long-distance, overseas contract
       manufacturing relationships to be more responsive to volatile demand.
     - More coordination points between brand owners and contract
       manufacturers because of an expanding range of outsourced services,
       including the creation of finished goods, configuration to order, and
       delivery to the customer's distribution center, assembly line,
       warehouse or end customer's address.
     - Automation of information transfer and business processes between
       buyers and suppliers.

"Our partnership with MfgQuote.com can help turn a low-volume regional supplier into a high-volume global supplier and simultaneously expand procurement options for purchasing agents and design engineers," said Matson VP of Marketing Gary Eyring. "With global competition increasing, getting the goods in the right place at the right time is critically important to supply chain success."
