Between tracking down freight quotes, accommodating for unforeseen weather events, and monitoring shipments in real-time, you have a lot to manage as a shipper. That’s why MercuryGate and Amazon Freight collaborated to bring to bear the best of what they each offer.
Together, they help you stay ahead of constant market changes and get your freight where it needs to be. Since May 2022, shippers on the MercuryGate transportation management system (TMS) can book their loads with Amazon Freight’s expanding network.
A perfect pair
It’s a powerful match. On one hand you have Amazon Freight’s network of carriers and more than 50,000 trailers. That’s part of the same network that Amazon.com uses to keep its loads moving, and now you can use it for your freight needs. On top of it, Amazon Freight is built on Amazon’s advanced technology and transportation capabilities and vigorous obsession with the shipping customer.
MercuryGate brings more than two decades of experience, and a reputation across the transportation industry for offering cutting-edge software solutions to help modernize their customers’ operations.
What it all means for you
That starts with competitive prices. The integration allows shippers to leverage Amazon Freights’ existing trailer fleet and backhaul lanes to move their loads. Its network tools improve loaded drive time, maximize tours, and reduce empty miles. Couple it all with more flexible options and advanced forecasting and it results in more competitive rates.
Being a shipper today is no easy responsibility but there is a way through it with Amazon Freight and MercuryGate.
