SCOTT SHEARON

Tom Sack and Scott Shearon have worked together since their days (1985) as officers of Chase Trans Info (a wholly owned subsidiary of The Chase Manhattan Bank). We invested together to buy Chase Trans Info from The Chase Manhattan Bank in 1989. After successfully growing CTI Logistics, we presided over the sale of CTI Logistics in 1994. In 1995 we formed Virtual Transportation Management Inc. (VTM). We have staff that has been with us through important industry developments, such as Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), Electronic Rating, Cloud Dashboards, Document Imaging, Online Reject Resolution & Foreign Currency Payments, just to name a few. We understand the demands of large clients and have the interest in sharing our knowledge and solutions with customers of all size. The controls we have built continue to evolve and serve many markets. SEE THE DIFFERENCE, when you receive the input and attention you deserve.

VTM Best Practices

  • Advanced Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) utilization with our customers, carriers & 3PL’s. >90% of data collected via EDI. Accurate, comprehensive, dynamically indexed for report building and queries. 99.9% data accuracy.

  • Accurate use of manual Data Entry when EDI is not a viable option.

  • Bill of Lading to Freight Bill Match delivers pre-rating, accrual reporting and re-pricing of shipments.

  • Advanced Freight Bill Audit & Pre-Rating tools provide accuracy, cost control and certainty. All modes of billings are audited, including parcel shipments.

  • Inbound Routing Compliance tests identify saving opportunities and unify carrier routing preferences with your inbound suppliers / vendors.

  • Custom Payment Options allow control (you pay, or we pay), credit terms management, foreign currency payments, frequency of payments.

  • Custom Analytics and customer facing Dashboards demonstrate patterns, trends and budget variances.  Carrier payment metrics make carrier reviews easy and powerful.

  • Document Imaging and Indexing links data records to related freight documents and VTM proof of payment info (cancelled checks, ACH receipts).

  • Internal VTM Metrics – Processing times, Funding Delays, Payment Rejects, Audit Savings, Carrier Inquiries, Customer to Baseline comparisons are identified.  VTM measures are transparent and focus on areas in need of review and repair.
