The dedicated truckload carrier is also known for providing irregular route services. Based in Salt Lake City, UT, the company transports frozen, refrigerated and dry foods throughout the continental US. In 2005, Kelle's Transport Service was named among the Hot 100 company rankings of America's top fast-growth companies by Entrepreneur magazine.

TMW Systems, Inc., welcomes Kelle's Transport Service, Inc., as a new customer using IDSC ExpertFuel®, the leading fuel optimization software. Engineered to work seamlessly with legacy systems and technology infrastructures, IDSC ExpertFuel will interface with the company's existing technology.

IDSC ExpertFuel is designed specifically for truckload carriers to minimize fuel costs and out-of-route miles. At dispatch, drivers receive a fuel/route plan detailing number of gallons to purchase at inexpensive and expensive stops. Using a unique algorithm to calculate all essential factors and best-in-class pricing/routing data, fuel plans are generated in real-time, in a matter of seconds. All relevant route and vehicle factors are considered in the solution including:

  • Current fuel prices, fuel level, vehicle fuel consumption, fuel network implications
  • State tax implications
  • Out-of-route miles, route policies
  • Terminal fueling and tank fill policies
  • Driver amenities


TMW acquired Integrated Decision Support Corporation (IDSC) and their decision support software offerings including IDSC Netwise, IDSC MatchAdvice and IDSC ExpertFuel, in 2007.
