G-Log Powers Major Growth for Australia's Largest Logistics Service Provider; Toll Solutions Optimizes Shipments Across Industri

SHELTON, Conn., March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- G-Log, the leading provider of global logistics and transportation software, announced today a significant expansion of its license with Toll, Australia's leading integrated transportation and logistics services provider. Powered by a single instance of the G-Log(R) Global Command and Control Center(TM) (GC3(TM)) software, Toll has experienced a four-fold increase in freight under GC3 management during 2004 -- growing its business with both new and existing customers including Coles Myer, Australia's largest retailer, and Goodman Fielder, Australasia's largest food manufacturer. Toll's Managed Transport Services (MTS) and Autologistics and Transport Operations Management (ATOM) solutions provide customers across a variety of industries with a single, automated solution to manage their transportation needs.

"G-Log continues to play a critical role in our growth strategy as it helps us deliver superior customer service and pass-through cost savings across the supply chain. GC3 forms a key element in our core solution framework providing a scalable and flexible platform to address a wide range of customer value propositions -- from automotive to consumer packaged goods to retail. As a result, we have achieved a superior rate of return on our investment by winning new business with our customers," said Tom Thompson, group general manager, Toll Solutions.

Successful Expansion Across Multiple Industries -- G-Log Paves the Way

Since going live with its GC3-powered MTS and ATOM solutions in early 2003, Toll has continued to expand its business by managing more freight each year for major customers like Unilever and GM Holden, and by adding new customers, including Coles Myer and Goodman Fielder in New Zealand. Both forms of expansion helped drive a four-fold increase in Toll's freight under GC3 management from 2003 to 2004. Anticipating similar explosive growth in 2005, as well as a planned expansion into new vertical industries, Toll has strategically invested to extend its integrated logistics management capabilities and gain more market share by offering its customers:

-- Improved on-time delivery and customer satisfaction -- Streamlined operational processes and better collaboration across the logistics network -- Enhanced supply chain efficiencies resulting in cost reductions -- Start-to-finish shipment visibility driving better decision-making capabilities

"Toll is a great example of how global logistics service providers can leverage our GC3 software to win new business without having to build a new solution from scratch for each new customer," said David Cairns, CEO, G-Log. "Toll enjoys a competitive advantage, because GC3 provides the foundation on which Toll can design and manage innovative supply chain solutions that provide customers with flexibility, reliability, and cost-competitiveness in managing increasingly demanding supply chain environments."
