Why Small Businesses Matter at Danbury: Integrated Web Network
Why small businesses matter
Buy small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter showcases local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods and services for the betterment of our community. The local store movement is going viral as local businesses that are tagged have the opportunity to share their stories!
You are IT Web Integrated Network!
Meet Lindsey Shellman, Commercial Director of Web Integrated Network.
Why did you start your business?
Shippers (manufacturers and distributors) wanted a way to manage their freight and shipments in-house and avoid having to outsource these tasks. There are a lot of exciting developments in technology, and the supply chain can finally take advantage of them. It’s a new era, and it has a name – FreightTech. Lindsey, the WIN team and many others who share this space are pioneering the FreightTech era, pushing the boundaries of what is possible.
Using the latest technology, including AI and ML, Lindsey and her team are eager to bring visibility to the supply chain space.

Have you “reimagined” your small business?
Yes, we have completely reinvented the way people can handle their freight. WIN, Web Integrated Network, is a cloud-based transportation management system that integrates with your existing ERP or legacy system.
You can consult the rates of your carriers, book your shipments and track your orders, at the office or remotely. WIN provides one place to manage all of your shipping needs. This has been particularly effective during WFH policies related to COVID19.
Lindsey would like to name Barnet Associates to be listed next!
