MessageXpress has been our partner for many years.  As we transitioned from EDITrans to PDMS the team was very helpful in all aspects.  The team listened to our needs and made changes necessary to keep us connected to our customers.  The team was available and worked great to ensure a smooth transition.  I would recommend them for your current and future EDI/TMS needs.



MessageXpress has been a great vendor partner to DSW Distribution Centers for over two decades. We use MessageXpress for all our transportation management (TMS) needs. Their technical and customer support is superior and highly responsive. They have been very flexible and helpful with integration and generating reports as needed. I would recommend them to any company that wants to be more efficient in organizing their data and have complete visibility of their business KPIs.
