Real time access to global logistics data makes shippers smarter. Modeling scenarios using real shipments, actual carrier rates & KPIs, and locations delivers transportation plans optimized to deliver minimal costs. Once in route, easy access to information by all trading partners provides the ability to quickly adapt and change the plan when things don’t go as planned.
Smart shippers maintain optimal results while minimizing costs using the MercuryGate TMS.
Supercharged shippers negotiate for rates from a position of strength. Easy access to historical and current industry rates, your carrier’s past performance, and expected load volumes insures you are always using the best available carrier at the best available rate.
Do you know which carriers consistently deliver on-time and bill accurately? Are you confident you are always selecting the best carrier for every load? Strong logistics organizations can answer, “Yes, because we use the MercuryGate TMS.”
Supercharged shippers adapt to changes quickly and effectively. Do you have new products with new mode or equipment requirements? Successful shippers say, “No problem”. Are you dealing with new international markets that require new processes, currencies or languages? Again, supercharged shippers say, “we can do that”. They welcome the changes and never miss a beat.
When management asks if you can adjust to something new, answer, “Yes we can. We use the MercuryGate TMS.”
An integrated transportation management system can make a difference in the company’s ability to exploit new market opportunities and be more competitive. Collaboration with trading partners, your accounting systems, warehouse management systems and other disparate systems will open new doors to growth possibilities.
