Commitment to Values, Customer Service, & Growth
Technical Traffic was founded in 1973 by father-son Robert and John Mecchella as a transportation consulting firm, specializing in the post audit of paid freight charges. With six employees on staff, many of whom were family members, the company aggressively uncovered and retrieved thousands of dollars worth of freight invoice errors paid by our clients.
In the early 1980’s Technical Traffic made the transition from a post-audit firm, to a fully integrated preaudit and payment firm, and did so with the recognition that a good quality preaudit should negate the need for a post audit. During that time the company also began to develop a niche in the industry by putting a heavy focus on client relationships and customization.
Throughout the 1980’s, 1990’s and 2000’s, Technical Traffic experienced rapid growth in size and scope, while remaining true to their charter as a customized service provider. Over the course of these three decades, the company added an in-house council for all transportation and supply chain legal needs, formalized a full service logistics department, and began offering data analytics and business intelligence services. In that time, Technical Traffic also moved three times to accommodate growth before ultimately building and settling at a 50,000 square foot facility in Congers, New York.
In most recent years, the Technical Traffic in-house IT team completed a three year project to rethink and rewrite all internal processing systems and platforms in order to ensure a robust database for all client services moving forward. Our focus remains on providing customized solutions for freight audit and payment, however is now done so with a heavy emphasis on leveraging technology to ensure highly automated processes, reporting, and web based applications.
Technical Traffic remains family owned and operated under the management of John and his wife Nancy, with their daughter Lauren representing the third generation of Technical Traffic’s future growth.
