About the Customer

Ward Transport & Logistics Corp. is a family-owned and operated asset-based LTL, brokerage, and warehousing provider. Founded in 1931 by William W. Ward as a “one-truck, two-man” operation, Ward was the first to offer Central Pennsylvania farmers access to the New York City market, where produce was in great demand.

Scope and Challenges

Ward Transport & Logistics selected the Kronos Workforce Central suite of workforce management solutions deployed in the Kronos Cloud. Ward Transport & Logistics needed a flexible workforce management solution to streamline processes and improve efficiencies. Previously, the logistics organization used a variety of disparate systems deployed on site, relying heavily on IT for operations and system maintenance. With cloud deployment, the company expects to gain a fast return on investment, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.

Outcome and Implications

By deploying in the Kronos Cloud, Ward Transport & Logistics will rely on Kronos to perform all configuration, maintenance, upgrades, and support of the workforce management solution, enabling its IT department to focus resources on other business priorities.


"The majority of our workforce is remote, spread across different locations and we needed a flexible, easy-to-use workforce management solution that could capture all of our employee information in one place. By deploying in the Kronos Cloud, Ward Transport & Logistics now has an opportunity to improve strategy, while also experiencing significant cost savings. We can now use real-time data to improve our business habits and decisions instead of relying on generalizations." - said Michael Zupon, Director of management information systems, Ward Transport & Logistics.

"Ward Transport & Logistics will see a significant improvement in efficiencies across its workforce once the organization is able to analyze its data and make necessary adjustments to capitalize on productivity and performance. Also, by deploying in the Kronos Cloud, the organization can now streamline processes and have all information in one secure place, improving accuracy and relieving some of the pressure on IT to manage numerous systems." - said Malysa O'Connor, Senior Director, Logistics Practice group, Kronos.
