Tim James Higham, BA DE CPCU, is a leading visionary in the logistics and transportation field, running highly successful InMotion Global, Inc. (AscendTMS). AscendTMS is the world's most popular TMS software, with over 33,000 customers in over 20 countries. AscendTMS is the #1 (and highest rated) TMS software on all major software review websites.
The industry leading AscendTMS system (www.TheFreeTMS.com) is the world's first and only TRULY multi-tenant, cloud based, patented, and independent TMS system - and is the winner of every available industry technology award for 18 years running.
Prior to starting AscendTMS, Tim co-founded and ran a national 3PL, where he invited Palm Beach Capital LLC to become minority equity shareholder in July, 2009 in order to speed both internal growth and outside acquisitions. The 3PL grew every year, including during the “great-recession”, with load counts being the most robust ever. It grew through a continued mixture of internal organic growth and further diversification through a continued acquisition strategy with Palm Beach Capital. The 3PL was sold in 2014. Tim spun off AscendTMS and bought it from Palm Beach Capital on January 1st, 2015. In August, 2017, a national, publicly traded bank holding company bought a minority stake in InMotion Global and AscendTMS.
Mr. Higham was widely recognized in the 1990s for revolutionizing the paper-intensive insurance industry. By using (then new) Internet capabilities, he made industry-specific processes nearly paperless. After selling his company, IRC, Inc., in 1998, he turned to the transportation and logistics field, merging "old school" thinking with "new school" technology.
Tim continues to be a popular industry speaker and author - helping TMS users understand the difference between "bleeding edge" and "leading edge" TMS technology and solutions.
