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 invoices. 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 pre-audit and payment firm, with the recognition that a good quality pre-audit 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.

Between 1980 and 2020, Technical Traffic experienced rapid growth in size and scope, while remaining true to our charter as a customized service provider. Over the course of these four decades, the company added an in-house council for all transportation and supply chain legal needs, formalized a full-service logistics department, began offering data analytics and business intelligence services, and invested heavily in Information Technology to leverage systems and drive efficiency.

In 2022, after nearly 50 years of managing Technical Traffic, co-founder John Mecchella and his wife, Nancy, made the decision to retire from the organization.  Their daughter, Lauren, maintained her interest in the business, while Jim Parker and David O’Quinn acquired John and Nancy’s shares. 

Under the management of Lauren, Jim, and David, Technical Traffic remains focused on the original charter of providing customized solutions for freight audit and payment, and we continue to invest heavily in technology to ensure highly accurate processes, reporting and data integrity.
