JF Hillebrand Goes Live with Nistevo

Global beverage logistics provider using solution for North American trucking management, visibility

Minneapolis — November 3, 2005 — JF Hillebrand Group, a global beverage logistics provider, said this week it is now using Nistevo Corp.'s Network for its domestic transportation management.

Nistevo's Web-hosted Network is expected to enable JF Hillebrand to automate all aspects of its North American transportation, including carrier management, tendering, tracking, visibility and reporting.

JF Hillebrand manages freight movements for the leading beverage organizations from around the world to North America. The company was in search of a solution to help manage the shipments from North American ports to its points of final delivery in North America.

Through the Nistevo Network, JF Hillebrand said it found a solution able to meet the needs of its customers for tracking of North American shipments and purchase orders (PO's), and that in turn makes this information available to JF Hillebrand's customer service professionals.

The Nistevo Network and its Web-based platform, augments JF Hillebrand's Web-based customer visibility tool (AXIS), enabling customer visibility.

"We looked at several vendors in search of the right solution for us," said Dave Ferris, managing director for JF Hillebrand. "Nistevo successfully demonstrated its abilities and proved why they are the market leader and largest on-demand network in North America. We're excited to be up and running on the Network."
