Freightgate, a vendor of software applications for the freight and logistics industry, has launched a Personal Logistics Web Desktop as a premium feature of its recently introduced Freightgate 2.0 Portal. Building upon the member features of the original Freightgate Portal, version 2.0 offers a Full Membership Option, which includes access to the Personal Logistics Web Desktop.

The new portal blends components of the vendor's PLTX platform with new Web 2.0 technologies, supporting the open portlet industry standard JSR 168, as well as RSS. Freightgate's other products include I-Trek! for internet supply-chain collaboration and visibility, GTM-Trek! for requests for quotation and tender management, Tariff-Trek! for service contract and quote management, FMC-Trek! for fulfilling publishing requirements of the Federal Maritime Commission, Pay-Trek! for automated freight-bill audit and payment, a WISA (What-If Scenario Analysis) tool, and I-Sail!, an interactive online sailing schedule.
