Our History

BBA was founded in 1972 by Ivan Berman.  A charismatic and outgoing individual, Ivan had sold a successful business and was looking for a service that provided long term value to it's client base.  His exploration took shape at the urging of several long time Accounts Payable contacts.  Ivan quickly realized the transportation related data contained on a freight bill had no value unless it was converted to information.  The key distinction between data and information became clear as the long term value shifted from an outsource Accounts Payable function to a transportation data warehouse.

Don Berman joined BBA followed by Ann Butler and Harold Baldauf, who joined the operations staff and began building and changing the company to a transaction-based process and information company.   In 1986 Ivan sold the company to Don Berman and Harold Baldauf and they began the process of embracing technology toward the delivery of transportation information.  From flat data files to robust relational databases to a menu of web-based services, BBA continues to embrace the use of technology that turns data into information.
