Distribution Data Inc.

Distribution Data Incorporated - Company

  • History - Distribution Data Incorporated (DDI) was started in 1985 with the major goal of providing a 100% customized freight invoice processing and payment service. We are the only major firm in our industry actively growing today that began as strictly a freight payment start-up. As our expertise grew, we realized there was a significant need for logistics consulting to coincide with freight invoice payment. Additionally, the potential existed for DDI to develop programs using our industry knowledge to create win-win situations for our clients. DDI personnel have been in the industry for many years serving in a variety of capacities. We bring a wealth of experience to our clients and years of expertise are represented in finance and accounting, transportation and audit, programming, operations and customer service. Today, DDI is a total transportation management and information processing company, providing complete and customized freight bill payment and reporting, transportation savings programs, specialized programming, broker services, small package analysis, and accounting support services.

  • Leadership - The DDI Executive Management Team is:

  • Robert W. Hartig - President
