In a logistics environment where many elements are out of your control, smart transportation solutions provide visibility that alleviates the stress points driving cost and inefficiency.
“Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen stressed supply chains, as historic levels of goods coming into the U.S., aging infrastructure, the pandemic, and geopolitical disruptions continue to cause bottlenecks, congestion, and challenges in global markets,” the U.S. Department of Transportation announced.
Despite those factors, MercuryGate evolves our transportation management solutions with a focus on solving the challenges our customers encounter. In doing so, we help shippers, brokers, logistics services providers, and third-party logistics providers work smarter.
EZ Vision Updates Streamline Transportation Execution
Sort Criteria and Prioritize loads
Find coverage on a load based on your specific needs. Quickly sort loads by required pick-up date or delivery date to prioritize the work further. Easily navigate to other load views and reporting within the system.
Monitor ETA and Manage Exceptions
Monitor loads pending delivery using our powerful new predictive ETA indicator. It identifies the status of a load, then works with MercuryGate’s rules engine to automate a response or prompt further action. Transportation managers dealing with disruption save time and effort when they use the tool to reschedule dock appointments and communicate downstream to drivers and customers.
Add Filters, Retain Dashboard Views and Expand Load Visibility
Prompt-able filters make sure your attention is focused on your most important loads every time the dashboard is accessed. Quickly toggle between a detailed look at one load to a full perspective on all your activity to maintain macro- and micro-awareness, without time-consuming back and forth between browsers.
Access Complete Load Details Quickly
Quickly review all information related to a load, including last location, over-the-road visibility, full track & trace information, and all corresponding financial details.
Transportation Data Reporting and Role-based Dashboards
Most companies can access a tremendous amount of data about their transportation activities. Many of those organizations can’t translate data into meaningful insights.
Automated and streamlined freight invoicing capabilities accelerate and improve billing accuracy. Collect multiple bills and loads into a master document to simplify record-keeping.
Master bills can be automatically created based on flexible rules, allowing you to automatically create weekly or monthly invoices for their customers. All invoices can be hyperlinked to supporting documentation within the system to reduce time spent on research.
Extended capabilities support advances and allowance management, even identifying and deducting previous allowances from owed totals.
Audit and pay
The settlement engine automatically matches, audits, checks for duplicate billing, reconciles, accrues, and prepares freight invoices for settlement.
Additionally, the system highlights invoices that failed to match an existing load and grants credentialed users the ability to accept or reject an invoice.
Exception management is alerted for invoices that don’t match or fail other conditions, such as a load that lacks proof of delivery.
And, of course, MercuryGate’s settlement solution supports international transactions, including VAT taxes and international currencies.
