NEW YORK, NY – Kenneth M Weinberg, the co-founder of Carrier Logistics (CLI), has died at the age of 72.

The man who served as vice president of sales was seen as the face of the company, which also developed a web-based FACTS freight management software that offered routing, dispatching, billing and accounting capabilities.

“Weinberg worked tirelessly to bring the software CLI developed into transportation companies to help them become more efficient, which in turn enabled them to prosper and grow,” said Don Adams, co-founder of the less-than-truckload operation.  “He understood that technology could help level the playing field between the transportation giants and other organizations.  He also firmly believed that everyone at a trucking company wanted to do the best job they could and the right software could help them do just that.”

Clients for the technology included companies such as Purolator Freight, Midland Courier, FedEx and more.

Weinberg is also credited with launching CLI’s leadership summit and user conference. And he liked to recall that, when he starting in the industry more than three decades ago, the best computers wold barely fit in a sleeper and stored less than a cell phone, the company says.
