With the recent 2017 Top Logistics IT Provider awards by Inbound Logistics Magazine, many new faces have emerged. With so many IT providers, shippers no longer must break the bank to invest in new IT solutions. Shippers have a choice between acquiring logistics technology solutions from their 3PLs and/or carriers or purchasing Transportation Management Systems directly from IT providers. Most IT providers sell similar TMS systems to shippers and logistics providers configured slightly differently and adapted to their specific needs.
One essential component that both shippers and logistics providers require is Freight Rate Management. The complexity of freight rates is overwhelming with surcharges and service constraints, compounded with a vast array of options for ocean, air, trucking, rail, and intermodal transport. Finding the best freight rate with the service you want is nearly impossible without having a Freight Rate Management Platform crunching the numbers and exploring all routing options.
When surveyed what transportation and logistics challenges are most critical to shippers and logistics providers seeking a Freight Rate Management solution?
The answer centers around four elements: Cost Reduction, Visibility, Integration, Data Management, and Customer Service.
